Truck Accidents

Experiencing any type of motor vehicle accident can be traumatizing. The potential injuries and property damage are enough to set your mind spinning. After an accident, it’s crucial to remain calm.

First and foremost, remember to say nothing. When talking with the police, remain truthful, but minimal. Do not apologize, express that the accident may have been your fault, or claim you will “take care of things.”

Next, report the accident. If you have not already, call emergency services. Then, seek medical attention. You may feel fine, but potential internal injuries are nothing to ignore. Lastly, notify your insurance company and seek out a truck accident attorney.
