What to Do After a Truck Accident
Preserve All Evidence
If you took photos of the truck accident and got contact information from witnesses at the scene, this can all be used to strengthen your case. We recommend e-mailing all evidence of the truck crash to yourself in case your phone or other technology is damaged.
Attend All Medical Appointments
Even if you don't feel injured, you should get checked by a doctor after your truck accident. Some internal injuries may not be easy to detect at first without the help of a medical professional. Any medical records of your injuries will be extremely valuable for your case. Attend all of your medical appointments, and preserve any documentation from your visits.
Do Not Speak to Insurance Companies
After your truck accident, you will likely be contacted by insurance adjusters representing the truck driver, their employer, and other invested entities. Do not speak to people representing the truck driver; their job is to represent their clients and minimize your claim. They may record your words and take them out of context in order to block any chance of a justified payout. Instead, direct all contact to our lawyers.
