What Should You Do Immediately After a Semi-Truck Accident?

Semi-Truck Accidents

 

First of all, obtain all the medical attention you need for your injuries.

Then, one of the most important things you can do after a semi- truck accident is to protect you and your family from further harm. That means insurance companies and their attorneys. This isn’t just speculation, it’s a fact. You will be getting phone calls immediately from their insurance company asking you to sign paperwork, give depositions and make a settlement.

This is why you need an experienced Personal Injury attorney to make sure you know exactly what you’re entitled to and not rushed to make a decision that could have devastating results.

 

As a Victim of a Semi-Truck Accident, You Could be Entitled to Compensation For:

  • medical expenses
  • lost earnings
  • pain and suffering
  • emotional suffering
  • other damages

Truck accidents are different than other vehicle accidents because of the federal laws that govern the trucking industry. Federal regulations require that certain evidence must be maintained, but only for a limited amount of time. A semi-truck’s log can be destroyed after six months – that is crucial evidence in a case.

 

Our Experienced Attorneys Know the Laws and Can Protect Your Rights.

 

Trucking companies can also carry different types of insurance on one truck. This confusion and the blame game among the companies of who is ultimately responsible to pay can go on for years – and without an experienced Truck Accident attorney to fight for your rights and compensation in a timely manner, you may miss the compensation you are owed.
