The First Steps After a Trucking Accident
A truck accident is similar to a truck accident in terms of your first response. Before you do anything else:
- Seek medical attention: Of course, your health is the most important thing. Make sure you work with a competent professional doctor and maintain good communication with your doctor. To aid you in this, we have compiled a list of Louisiana physicians and local physicians.
- Talk with a lawyer: After taking care of your health, make sure you are fully aware of your right for compensation. Sit down with one of our lawyers for a free initial consultation to learn more about the options available to you. Maintain good communication with your lawyer.
- Do not talk with the insurance company agents: The insurance company agents will be very friendly and will seem to be on your side. This is not the case, however. In fact, they are experts at getting injury victims to say things that they can use to minimize or deny victims' compensation. Don't be a victim twice. Do not say anything or give them a sworn statement of any kind. Talk with a lawyer first.
- Understand your personal injury case: Use our Injury Accident Guide, and, in particular, our do's and don'ts guideline, to better understand what you should and should not do after an accident.
Truck accidents are different from car accidents in that the stakes are higher, the insurance companies have more to lose and the litigation is much more aggressive.
