What Should I Do After a Trucking Accident?
The first thing you should do after a trucking accident in Gainesville is to check on the wellbeing of all vehicle occupants involved in the event if it’s safe to do so. Once you are certain that others involved are safe or being cared for by medical professionals, call the police and report the accident.
You should then follow the police instructions for the next steps in the process. After communicating with the police, call your insurance company to report the incident. State only your basic information without elaborating on the details on the event. If you are asked about any medical problems you’re experiencing after the accident, tell the insurance company you cannot provide them the details until you speak with your attorney.
What are the Common Causes of Trucking Accidents?
As with most auto accidents, trucking accidents are often the result of driver error. Most accident cases in the United States are the result of a loss of attention for a split-second. However, in some cases, trucking accidents are the result of poor vehicle maintenance and this can often mean that the trucking company itself is held liable for damages in the case. Working with our legal team, you can build your case and learn more about the cause behind your accident.
How is a Truck Accident Different from a Car Accident?
Accident victims attempting to achieve compensation for truck accident claims should note that truck accidents are very different from car accidents in a number of ways. For example, in a truck accident, you will need to access the driver’s working record and establish if they are following the rules regarding hours worked. Trucks also have different mechanical and accident-related issues such as blind spots and loads, and these must be taken into consideration when evaluating legal cases.
