Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents, like automobile and motorcycle accidents, can have many causes.  In trucking accidents, often overwork and fatigue are factors impairing the truck driver’s ability.  Equipment failure can also be a factor.

 

Serious injuries are frequent following a crash with a truck, as one might expect given the magnitude of the vehicle or vehicles involved.  If able, remain calm and follow the procedures of what to do following any accident.  First and foremost, seek emergent medical care.  Call 911 and report the accident to the police including your injuries.  If you are able, take photographs of the vehicles involved and the accident scene.  Exchange information with the other parties involved including names, contact information and insurance information.  Also make sure to get the names and contact information of all witnesses and people who come to your aid.

 

Following a trucking accident, you will want to make sure to hire a good lawyer right away.  Given that the issues could involve equipment failure, improperly balanced loads, overwork and fatigue, you lawyer will want to begin his or her investigation of the accident immediately.  Your lawyer will also best advise you on how to go about making sure that every aspect of your claim is addressed and documented so that you ultimately recover the absolute best settlement or jury verdict possible.
