Truck Accident Procedures


Truck accidents can be especially frightening considering the dangerousness of their weight and size. You may be unsure about what to do after the accident and do not want to say anything to the insurance company that could make them deny or devalue your injury claim.

Our truck accident lawyers have helped seriously individuals process their accidents and move towards resolutions that benefit them and their futures. With years of experience, we understand the truck accident procedure process thoroughly as it pertains to truck drivers, victims, and their families.

Procedures for Truck Accident Victims

If you were injured by a truck driver, there’s a possibility that your accident was caused by negligence and that you are entitled to seeking financial compensation. As a result, it’s important to follow certain steps to increase your chances of securing the maximum financial compensation under the law.

After a truck accident, it is important to call the authorities and seek medical attention for any injuries. Even a headache can worsen over time and or even be an indication of an underlying, more serious injury.

You then need to document as much of your accident as possible so that when you hire a personal injury attorney to get started on your claim, you can pass along the information you have collected so far.

Information to collect includes:

  • Contact information of the truck driver and trucking company
  • Photos of your injuries and vehicle damage
  • Contact information of any witnesses
  • Crash report

Calling a law firm sooner rather than later can help you cover the costs of damages quickly so you can avoid going into debt, especially for those who are severely injured and out of work after a truck accident.
