Tractor-Trailer Accidents

What you should know if you are involved in a tractor-trailer accident.

  1. Call 911. It is very important to contact the police in order to document the accident.  Regardless of what the at-fault driver tells you, contact the police.  This is the best way to protect your interest.
  1. SEEK TREATMENT IMMEDIATELY!  It is very important that you are treated as soon as possible after an accident.  You should be seen at either an emergency room or other urgent care treatment center.
  1.  TAKE PICTURES OF THE VEHICLES AND YOUR INJURIES.  It is important to document the scene of the accident, the property damage, and your injuries.  Use your phone to take pictures.  Give these photos to your attorney, not the insurance company.
  1.  CONTACT A LAWYER.  Contact a lawyer immediately. A lawyer will act quickly to put the trucking company on notice in order to preserve evidence.

Should you speak to the insurance company after being involved in a car accident?

SHOULD YOU SPEAK TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY AFTER BEING INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT? You should speak with a lawyer before speaking with the insurance company. It is important to remember that the insurance company is not on your side. The insurance adjuster’s job is to extract information that could be used against you. Speaking with a lawyer will ensure that your rights are protected!!!!
