What should I do after being injured in a truck accident?
People that have been involved in accidents in a commercial trucking situation where a tractor trailer semi or a logging truck has collided with them often want to know what’s the first thing to do. Without fail, without exception, we tell them go get medical treatment, even if you don’t think you’re hurt, because many times, pain and discomfort don’t show up for several days. If you don’t get treated or if you don’t go see a doctor within the first 14 days, your own insurance is not required to pay. Go get checked out. Go get treated. Then the treatment process can happen and you’ll be in good shape.
The next thing to do is call a lawyer. Let the lawyer do the things that are important, such as preserve evidence. This is regardless of whether you actually have a case or not. He can go out to the accident scene, photograph the scene because collision scenes change, particularly up here in Nassau County. He can photograph the damage to your car. Cars get repaired, particularly if you have your own insurance collision coverage— they want to go in and get those cars repaired quickly. If we can get in early, we can preserve that evidence.
