Q What do I do after a truck accident?
AFirst, it is important to attend to your injuries. Truck accidents cause serious injuries, far more injury that an auto accident in most cases. However, once you have gotten emergenvy treatment for your severe einjuries, contact an attorney immediately. Here is why!
First, truck companies hire professionals to investigate the accident, and they will go to the scene right after an accident to collect evidence that helps them prove they were not negligent. You have no one doing that for you. These investigators will speak to the officer, witnesses and sometimes even try to influence the police officer's opinion. Therefore, if you can, you want to hire a California Truck Accident attorney immediately to do that same work for you.
But there are more reasons to hire an attorney. They know the experts that will be needed to prove your case. They also know where to look for evidence of improper training or repair of the truck that may have caused the accident, before that evidence can be thrown out or destroyed.
A qualified Truck accident attorney can also make sure you receive the best medical care. You may want a referral to doctors or professionals that specialize in the treatment of head injuries, post concussive syndrome, neck and back acceleration injuries and other types of injuries unique to truck accidents.
