THE PROPER STEPS TO TAKE FOLLOWING A SEMI-TRUCK ACCIDENT
Promptly call and report the truck-related collision to the police and your auto insurance company.
Exchange contact and auto insurance information with the truck driver by using The Beliz Law Firm’s Accident Fill-out Form. If applicable, you may be able to bring an action against the owner of the truck and/or the driver’s employer.
Photograph the big-rig, truck, 18-wheeler, or semi-truck’s property damage. Also document and take pictures of your vehicle’s property damage, the scene of the accident, debris from the vehicles involved in the collision, tire skid marks, etc.
Speak to any and all witnesses who may have seen the accident. Take down their names, phone numbers, and addresses. An independent witness may help determine who is at fault in a disputed truck liability case.
Do Not Talk! You are not legally obligated to speak to the other party or the other party’s auto insurance company. Anything you say regarding the accident or your injuries may be used against you in a potential personal injury case. Only speak to your personal injury attorney.
Promptly seek medical attention for your injuries. Many truck accident injuries, including serious ones, do not occur immediately.
