After you have been involved in an accident involving a tractor trailer it can be a difficult and overwhelming process. We regularly handle big truck accident claims for our clients. These claims can be very complicated due to the typically serious nature of the injuries to the parties involved, and also because the claims may involve parties from multiple states and multiple layers of insurance. To relieve some of the stress you may be feeling after an accident, here are the main steps you should take after the accident.
- First, seek medical attention immediately. Seeking medical attention as soon as possible is pivotal to your health and will provide you with a written record of the injuries that you sustained from the accident.
- After the accident has occurred, make sure that a police report has been filed with all of the correct information involving the details of the accident. Also, be sure that the reporting officer has all of your correct information. Documenting all of the details of the incident will make it easier for an attorney to put a case together, if that is needed.
- Contact a personal injury attorney. It can be very confusing to try and deal with insurance companies and the trucking company on your own. An attorney will be able to walk you through the process and build a case that will help you get the compensation you deserve.
