What To Do if You Are Hit by an 18-Wheeler

If you are in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, your first priority should be your immediate safety. Contact 911 and request that an ambulance be sent to your location. If you are able, collect the contact information of those involved in the accident. Be sure to get their name, phone number, and insurance information. Once the police arrive, give them a statement and write down their badge number. If you are able, ask any witnesses for a statement and their contact information, as well. It’s recommended that you don’t talk about the accident with the truck driver and avoid discussing the accident with the insurance company until you have consulted an attorney. The insurance company will often have it’s best interest in mind and will try to reduce the amount of money they must give you once you file a claim. An attorney can help you in discussions with the insurance company and can help you understand if your claim has been undervalued.

Don’t Wait to Get the Help You Will Need

Commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When they travel at a high rate of speed, on highways and roads packed with much smaller vehicles, and if there is any sort of negligence on the part of the driver or trucking company, these trucks are capable of causing an unbelievable amount of damage when they are involved in an accident. The majority of truck accidents result in catastrophic injuries or death.

You can trust that our firm will do everything possible to see that you are fairly compensated for your injuries. We will be the aggressive advocate you need when fighting to protect your rights.

If you or a loved one has sustained serious injury or a wrongful death in a truck accident, do not discuss your case with your insurance company or any other individual before you contact a Dothan truck accident lawyer at our firm.
