After a Truck Accident, What Should You Do?
Sample case: On October 23, 2020, a truck accident occurred.
Commercial trucking businesses have a responsibility to keep their fleets safe. They must properly train their drivers, inspect their trucks on a regular basis, and load their trailers in a safe manner. Despite the fact that the trucking business is governed by a number of state and federal safety rules, catastrophic trucking accidents continue to occur far too regularly.
It’s critical to understand how to safeguard your safety, health, and legal rights after a collision with a commercial truck. Dakota Low, Oklahoma’s experienced truck accident attorneys are enthusiastic about helping injury victims get the justice they deserve, and we will fight hard to get you the full and fair compensation you need to get back on your feet.
Your primary worry after a collision with a large rig or 18-wheeler must be your health and safety. If you’ve suffered a significant injury, you should seek medical help straight soon. Depending on the seriousness of your injuries, you may need to be sent to a hospital right once for treatment.
If, on the other hand, you do not require immediate assistance and are able to safely preserve your rights, before thinking of the accident settlements, consider the following:
Request that a police officer comes to the accident scene and file an accident report. If necessary, seek medical assistance.
Take photographs of the accident scene, including your car, the truck, and any injuries you may have suffered.
Speak with witnesses
It’s possible that the accident scene will be your sole opportunity to speak with witnesses, such as pedestrians and other motorists.
Obtain the following information from the driver
Request that the driver provides you his or her commercial driver’s license, as well as papers indicating who owns the cab, trailer, and transported cargo.
