What to Do If You Are Injured in a Truck Accident
The first thing you should do after a tractor-trailer accident is seek
medical attention. Even if you feel “fine,” some injuries
– such as brain injury – do not show symptoms immediately.
You should be examined by a qualified medical practitioner as soon as possible.
Every time a tractor-trailer accident occurs, the motor carrier company
will send investigators, representatives, and lawyers to the scene as
quickly as possible to protect the company’s best interests. With
this in mind, the most important thing you can do after a truck accident
is contact our firm. We work to make sure essential evidence is preserved
in your case, and help you thoroughly document the accident scene.
Do not sign any authorizations or give any statements in the aftermath
of your truck accident, since this could potentially harm your case; instead,
take immediate action to retain legal representation from our experienced
truck accident attorneys.
Compensation in a Truck Accident Case
If your truck accident case is successful, the person (or parties) who
are found liable for your injuries can potentially pay you:
- Current and future medical expenses.
- Lost income.
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering.
- Property damages.
- Long-term or permanent physical disability or disfigurement.
- Punitive damages (in some cases).
In a personal injury case, “damages” are designed to restore
you to the position you were in before the accident and your resulting injuries.
