What To Do After A Truck Accident
If you or someone close to you has been injured in a truck accident, the steps you take after the accident can have a significant impact on your legal prospects. The most important thing to do after an accident (aside from getting medical treatment) is to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

You Need To Know Your Rights
A knowledgeable truck accident attorney can help you understand your rights in the wake of an accident. It is important that you consult with an attorney before making any statements to the trucking company, its insurance provider or even your own insurance company. Their investigators will likely try to get you to make statements that harm your case.
Other important things to do after a truck accident:
- Take pictures of the accident scene.
- Take pictures of the damage to your vehicle, the truck and other vehicles involved.
- Identify potential witnesses.
Things not to do after an accident:
- Talk to the insurance company before getting your own attorney.
- Get your car repaired before talking to a lawyer.
