Helping You Move Forward after Your Truck Accident
After a truck accident, you may be in shock and trying to piece together what happened. You may need long-term medical attention, be unable to work for the foreseeable future, and be in constant pain.
John Bales Attorneys know this can be a difficult and emotional time for you and your loved ones. If you follow these important steps, you may be able to maximize your chances of getting the resolution you need to get your life back.
Steps to Take
Whether your tractor-trailer accident just occurred or you are preparing an emergency plan for your family, our tractor-trailer accident lawyers are here for you. As soon as a truck accident happens, you should:
- Get medical attention.
If you or anyone else in the accident is seriously injured, call 911 to get medical treatment right away. Even if your injuries are not life threatening, it is still important that you see a doctor as soon as you can to rule out any internal injuries, as some injuries may take several days to show up.
- Collect contact information.
Get the names and phone numbers of the trucking company and the truck driver—this information can often be found in the police report. If other vehicles were involved, you also need to get the names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information of other motorists and any witnesses.
- Gather evidence.
If possible, take pictures of your injuries with your camera or cell phone as soon as possible after the accident. Write down a record of what happened in the accident, such as how fast you were going and the lane you were traveling in. Also, be sure to get a copy of your medical report from the doctor who treated you.
