What to Do in the Event of a Truck Accident

To protect your rights after a truck accident, we advise you to follow these guidelines:

  • Stay at the scene of the truck accident.
  • Exchange information with any other people who were involved.
  • Assess any injuries or damage.
  • Call the police if the accident caused an injury or at least $500 of property damage.
  • Receive medical attention if there is even a minor-seeming injury.

If you did not follow these steps after your accident, do not worry — an attorney can still help you. Lawyers are quite familiar with all the consequences an individual or family could be faced with following a truck accident, including:

  • Medical or funeral bills
  • Property damage
