What to Do After a Truck Accident
Sadly, you can’t change what happened in your accident, but you can take steps to strengthen your truck accident claim against the negligent parties:
- File records of the truck accident, including any photos, witness accounts, and information you may have collected at the scene of the crash.
- See your doctor immediately. Don’t let the insurance adjuster choose a physician for you—you have the right to choose your own.
- Do not talk to the investigator or attorney representing the trucking company without a lawyer. You may get a call from the trucking company’s investigator or attorney even while you are in the hospital. Take their contact information and tell them you will have your attorney contact them.
- Call your insurance company. A delay in reporting a truck accident can hurt your claim.
- Don’t sign anything. Insurance companies will sometimes send an adjuster to the scene of an accident to gather information while you are vulnerable.
- Write it down. Keep notes about how you feel after the accident. It can be difficult to remember how painful simple actions were, like cooking dinner or pulling a shirt over your head, six or seven months after the collision.
- Keep receipts and records of expenses. Documents, such as medical records or receipts for household services, can strengthen your claim.
- Call an experienced lawyer. The truck accident lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys will fight for you.
