- Get names and numbers.
If possible, get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of other drivers and any witnesses. You should also get the trucking company’s name and contact information.
- Seek medical care.After an accident, your first priority should be getting medical treatment. See a doctor if you experience any pain following your accident. Some injuries take time to become apparent.
- Document everything.
If you can, take pictures of the accident. Write down a detailed description of what happened during the accident, including the lane you were traveling in, your speed, and driving conditions. This evidence will help your attorney prepare your case.
- Don’t accept the initial offer.
After a truck accident, you may have to deal with adjustors who work for the trucking company’s insurance provider. They may show up at the accident scene or call you at home and offer you a lowball settlement. Don’t negotiate with them. Most importantly, don’t sign anything. Their job is to pay you as little as they can.
