What to Do After a Truck Accident
The aftermath of a truck accident can be frightening and stressful. Consequently, it is important that you follow some vital steps outlined below to ensure you receive the medical attention you need and preserve important evidence that could be used to pursue your claim against the person(s) or company(s) responsible for your injuries.
- Call the police: It is critical that you file an accident report, even if you do not believe your injuries are extensive. An accident report will be a crucial documentation of your incident, and it will contain important information, such as the parties involved, insurance information, physical evidence found, and initial opinions as to fault.
- Seek medical attention: Commercial trucks are massive vehicles that will usually cause injuries or property damage to the cars or SUVs they hit. If you have been involved in a truck accident, you should seek medical attention, as your health is the number one concern. At times, injuries will not become apparent until later on, so it is important that you get checked out soon after the crash.
- Call Montlick & Associates to speak to an experienced truck accident attorney: Truck accident cases are complex and multi-faceted. There will often be multiple defendants and rigorous disputes over fault. Truck accident cases often involve complexities of federal and state law. Contact Montlick & Associates as soon as possible so that the necessary steps are taken to protect your rights and so that you don’t miss any critical legal time deadlines.
Compensation for Your Losses Following a Truck Accident
If you have been injured in a truck accident cause by someone else’s negligence, you should be able to seek compensation for your losses sustained in the crash. Such damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Our attorneys understand the severity of serious motor vehicle accidents involving tractor-trailers. Due to the immense size of commercial vehicles, especially when compared to passenger vehicles, trucking accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, incomprehensibly high medical expenses, long-term or even permanent lost wages, and drastic reduction in the quality of life of the victim due to serious injury. Our firm fights hard for each client to help them recover the compensation they deserve.
