What should I do after a truck accident?
If you or a loved one have been involved in a trucking accident, it is one of the most serious situations that you can find yourself in, obviously. The most important thing is that, of course, as soon as it happens, you seek medical attention immediately. That goes without saying. Then the next thing to do, if it’s safe, is making sure that you observe your surroundings. Of course, call the authorities, get the police to the scene as soon as possible. Make a mental note about what’s written on the side of the truck. There are also certain DOT numbers that may be on the truck as well. You may want to write that down if it’s safe for you to do so.
Trucking companies are usually large corporations. They will literally fly a team of experts to the scene of the accident shortly right after it occurs to protect their interest. Don’t go at this alone. Go to a law firm that has the experience and the knowledge with respect to truck accident cases.
