You’ve Been Injured in a Truck Accident – What Now?

The moments immediately following a truck accident is where you will likely gather most of the important informant that pertains to your personal injury case. Above all else, your health and safety comes first. You should always call for medical attention, even if you don’t see any apparent injuries – you could have sustained internal injuries that don’t become obvious until later.

After a truck accident, you should do the following:

  • Call for 911: Be sure to report the accident. If the police file a report, it’s important you obtain a copy of the report.
  • Put together a list of witnesses: Get the names, addresses, and contact information of bystanders who may have witnessed the accident
  • Write down important information: Take note of the truck’s license plate, any responding officers, and road conditions.
