What should I do in case of an accident?

First of all, ensure that everyone is safe and call for medical attention if necessary.

  • Report the accident so a police officer can make an official report and investigation;
  • Take the other person’s information. This includes name, address, insurance policy information, vehicle information and phone number;
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and injuries (if possible). This is important to help establish responsibility of the accident and injuries;
  • Never sign any documents you don’t understand. Remember insurance policies are not on your side and they will try to settle your case with the least amount possible. If they ask you to sign any documents accepting any offer, this will waive your right of getting your medical bills paid and the compensation you deserve; and
  • Do not admit fault if you are unsure who caused the accident. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney first

Remember, having an experienced lawyer by your side right after the accident is a decisive factor.

Many drivers ignore motor vehicle insurance requirements, cannot afford to purchase insurance, or they carry insufficient insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage is a form of insurance that pays compensation for bodily injury that results from a car accident with a driver who is legally responsible for the injuries, but has no liability coverage. Underinsured motorist coverage pays compensation for bodily injury that results from an auto accident with a driver who has liability insurance with limits that are lower than the injured party's underinsured motorist coverage limits

Truck accidents can be fatal. Given the dimensions and weight of semi-trucks and 18 wheelers, these accidents tend to be catastrophic. Drivers are responsible for transporting merchandise all around the country using trailer trucks that can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. The more miles a truck driver puts on the road, the more money they are paid for their services. Aside from that, many are paid bonuses for arriving ahead of schedule. This tends to cause drivers to put in longer than recommended hours behind the wheel using excessive speed on the road. Beyond this danger, there are many truck drivers who may potentially be under the influence of substances that help them stay alert. This presents a serious danger to the driver and everyone else on the road. A fatigued driver is as dangerous as an intoxicated driver and even more hazardous given the size of the vehicle.

The laws governing commercial companies and their drivers are designed to protect other drivers, pedestrians and people who use public transportation from commercial driver negligence or company oversight.

Seek for medical attention- a physician needs to make an evaluation and recommend a treatment plan.
