Common Mistakes To Avoid

Injured from a Truck Here's What You Need To DoSome of the most common mistakes that we see after a trucking accident or collision is clients not seeking immediate medical attention for whatever reason. Second of all – and this is probably the most important one – is that they do not seek the assistance of an experienced trial lawyer in this area of the law. It is important to have an experienced hand guiding such a complex process. An experienced attorney knows to hire the experts needed to do an immediate crash reconstruction of the scene and how to take photos and videos of the vehicles involved in the scene.

Do NOT Give a Recorded Statement

Oftentimes when we have clients who have been involved in a serious trucking incident, they tell us that the representative for the trucking company or the trucking company’s insurance company has been calling them wanting to take their statement. It is never a good idea to give a statement to the insurance adjuster or the trucking company’s representative without first talking to an experienced trial lawyer in this area of the law. The reason being is that insurance companies and trucking companies are not in the business of paying out claims to compensate those they have injured. They’re there to make money for themselves and for their shareholders.

Steps to Take After the Accident

If you’re involved in a serious trucking wreck with an 18-wheeler or some other type of big truck, first and foremost, make sure you get immediate medical attention. Soon thereafter, it is important for you to find and hire an attorney who is experienced in these types of cases. Your attorney needs to know to hire the experts to go out and do the accident reconstruction. They need to know how to guide our clients through the maze of medical doctors so that they get the medical treatment that they need.
