WERE YOU INVOLVED IN A TRUCKING ACCIDENT?
An accident with a truck can be a traumatic and devastating experience. It may be difficult to immediately have the presence of mind to think in terms of medical bills, lost wages, lawsuits, and evidence gathering. However, if you have been in a crash involving an 18-wheeler, there are some things that are helpful to do sooner, rather than later.
GET A POLICE REPORT COMPLETED AT THE SCENE
At the accident scene, make sure that a police officer comes to make a report of the accident (provided law enforcement is not already there). While a lawsuit is not a foregone conclusion when there is an accident, having an objective third party create a report of what occurred on the scene can be extremely helpful in the future when submitting an insurance claim or filing a lawsuit.
TAKE PHOTOS AND NOTES OF EVERYTHING
Be sure to take photos of every vehicle involved in the crash, any physical injuries, tire/skid marks, and road signs. While photos are important, so are the facts. Take notes of what you saw and remember happening before, during, and after the crash. Memories can easily fade, so be sure to either write notes down with a pen and paper, takes notes in your cell phone, or send yourself an email.
SEE A DOCTOR SOON
Whether or not you think you have an injury, seeing a doctor and having a written medical record from the accident can help you with future injury claims. It’s very common to go days without noticing an injury after an accident involving a large truck.
