What To Do After A Commercial Truck Wreck
It’s important to stay at the scene of the accident, call for help and collect contact information if you are able to do so. Taking photos of the scene is even better if you are physically able and have the presence of mind to do so.
In the minutes, hours and days after an accident, evidence can disappear, and the clock is ticking on a potential claim. It is crucial to see a doctor even if you don’t feel pain. It can take a while for symptoms to appear, and seeing a doctor creates a record of your injuries and treatment that can be valuable in a future claim.
Most importantly, get in touch with an attorney. The insurance company would love nothing more than for you to go it alone or accept an early offer. A personal injury lawyer will make sure you get the best possible outcome. Call us at 859-965-1072 for a free consultation.
