What do I do after a truck accident?

If your loved one has been involved in a truck accident, the first concern is for the health of your loved and their recovery. Because of the nature of a truck accident and the destructive force that these vehicles have, the injuries tend to be a lot more severe than a normal transportation accident like a car accident. These cases are very complex. So, it’s important to obtain legal counsel very early in the case. This is because truck companies typically send someone out to the scene immediately. For example, they might send an insurance company out. And they immediately start and they’re really aggressive about investigating the case.

As a result, you need to get someone involved early. The best way to get that evidence and preserve it is to hire an injury attorney early in the case so that they can collect this information. They can also put the other side on notice not to destroy or spoil any of the evidence that’s in the case. Our firm has a lot of experience with truck accidents and handling them. We’re familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. And we’re going to be able to take that burden off of your shoulders.
