Experienced and Successful Cincinnati Truck Accident Attorney to Serve You
There are specific steps to take after an injury accident with a commercial vehicle. These steps include the following:
Get medical treatment. If you are not seriously injured, it is still necessary to be fully evaluated by a medical professional, as some very serious injuries are not immediately evident. As truck accidents are more likely to lead to severe injuries or death, many victims will be transported to the hospital by emergency services.
Connect with our firm. The evidence surrounding the accident must be preserved, and there could be vital data that is destroyed if we are not involved. Trucks have a "black box" similar to what is found on planes, and the data on this recorder could be crucial in proving your claim. We may need to engage an independent truck accident investigator and subpoena certain information to support your claim.
Don't give a statement to the trucking firm's insurance company. Your case could be compromised if you offer information to the insurance company without legal representation. Commercial insurance companies are primarily focused on resolving your claim for as little money as possible. Our involvement in your case could be pivotal in the compensation finally recovered.
Preserve any evidence from the crash. Your vehicle and in some cases, the items inside your car, must be retained. You must act quickly to preserve these items because your car, if totaled, can be crushed within a few weeks after the crash. Sometimes evidence that appears irrelevant at first can prove to be critical in a truck accident investigation and the final resolution of your claim against the negligent parties.
