You won’t have many allies after an accident. The truck driver and company’s insurance company will try to mitigate your payout and point the fault back at you. This is often a traumatic experience for all involved, and everyone will be looking for someone to blame.
When Should I Contact a Lawyer After a Truck Accident?
Seek legal counsel as soon as possible. An experienced attorney will listen to your story, gather information, and give you honest feedback on the situation.
An attorney can help you pursue compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Punitive damages in extreme cases
- Any other related expenses
Know that truck drivers are held to higher standards than other motorists. A truck has several disadvantages to other vehicles, including worse visibility, slower acceleration, and increased inertia. No matter how things may appear, there are many moving parts in an accident that are not readily apparent. Our firm knows how to navigate these cases and ensure our clients’ rights are upheld.
What to Do After a Truck Accident
Our Louisville truck accident lawyer can tell you what to do to make sure all the information is properly presented to the authorities. Many steps can be overlooked, which is the last thing you want in a complex situation like this.
A few basic tips:
- If you can, take pictures of the accident right after it happens.
- Seek medical attention immediately, even if you feel fine. Not all effects of an accident will be instantly noticeable.
