We understand that a truck accident can happen when you least expect it, and because of the sheer size of the vehicles involved, a truck accident in the local area is always severe.
While you might have a lot of emotions going through your mind in the immediate aftermath of a truck accident, you need to make sure you remain calm.
Some of the most important steps you need to take include the following.
First, you must make sure that you call 911. No matter how minor you think the accident might be, you need to call 911 and ask for the authorities to come to the scene. There has to be an official report of the accident, and you must make sure that everyone gets appropriate medical care.
If there are no accident reports, it will be like the accident never even happened, which will make it very difficult for you to file a claim down the road.
As long as you feel like you can do so safely, get out of your vehicle and move to a safe location. You do not know how much damage has been done to your vehicle, and if you feel like you can get out of the car safely, you should do so and move a safe distance away from your car.
You need to preserve as much evidence from the accident as possible, so you should take pictures and videos of the accident scene. If you have your phone in your pocket, try to take pictures of the locations of the vehicles. If you can take a video that shows the location of all vehicles and parties involved, that would be even better.
When the police officers arrive, be honest with them about what happened. You should try not to worry about what other people are saying. Instead, focus on the accident from your perspective, and share your story with the police officers.
While you might feel fine after the accident, there could be a lot of adrenaline going through your body. This adrenaline can mask serious injuries, so you always need to speak with a doctor after a truck accident. Make sure the doctor is thorough and ensures that none of your injuries are overlooked.
Finally, after you have seen a doctor, you should reach out to truck accident lawyers who can provide you with a case consultation. If the accident was not your fault, you should not be responsible for the financial ramifications of the accident.
