  • The trucking parts company for defective parts

What to Do After a Truck Accident

While any type of vehicle collision can be a traumatic experience, crashes involving large trucks have the potential to be particularly shocking. If you should ever be involved in a truck accident, it is vital you remain calm and check all involved parties for injuries. If anyone appears to be hurt, call an ambulance at once.

Once medical attention has been summoned, call the police and report the accident. A police officer will help you control the situation, move your vehicle to a safe location if possible, and create an official report of the incident. Cooperate with the police, but do not divulge any unnecessary details that could be misconstrued as an admission of fault. Avoid comments such as “I didn’t see them,” or even “I’m sorry,” as they can possibly be used against you later on.

If possible, take detailed photographs of the accident scene, including:

  • Damage to all involved vehicles
  • Tire tracks
  • Damaged property
  • Skid marks

These photographs can serve as valuable evidence when recreating the circumstances an accident and help determine who is at fault for the collision. Exchange and record important insurance information with the other involved drivers, including names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, and license plate numbers. Once all immediate requirements have been satisfied, it is vital you consult with a knowledgeable truck accident lawyer from our firm to determine the most appropriate course of action to take. An attorney from our firm can sort through the facts of your case and craft a strategy that maximizes your chances of securing compensation.
