Helpful Steps To Take After A Commercial Vehicle Accident
Whenever a commercial vehicle, semi truck or tractor-trailer is involved in a car accident, there is likely to be significant damage because of the sheer size differences between the vehicles involved in the accident. The steps you take at the scene of an accident with a truck can make a big difference in the outcome of your case. If you are involved in a truck accident it is important to:
- Call for help to get medical attention at the scene for anyone suffering from serious injuries and to get law enforcement assistance with an accident report
- Gather information and evidence by collecting insurance information; any information about the trucking company and driver; witness names and contact information; the commercial trucking company information
- Take photos of insurance cards, license plates, and, if possible, the vehicles
- Seek medical attention in the days and weeks that follow if any soreness or medical issues present themselves
In the state of Oklahoma, comparative fault laws require anyone whose negligence contributed to the accident to share in the damages for truck accident injuries. The more information you can gather at the scene of the accident, the easier it will be to hold negligent parties responsible.
If you sustained serious and catastrophic injuries, an experienced truck accident attorney will help you protect your rights and fight on your behalf for the compensation you deserve.
