What To Do After A Truck Crash
A collision with a large truck or tractor trailer is enough to shake anyone up. In the hours and days that follow, there are a few very important steps to take to ensure you can obtain the compensation you deserve.
See a doctor
Even if you think you are not hurt, seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident. Serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, might not be obvious right away.
Talk to your insurance company, but don’t settle
Report the accident to the police and the insurance companies involved, but don’t take the first offer the insurance company makes. The fact is, insurance companies are out to make money. They want to settle your claim as quickly as they can, for the lowest cost to them.
