Truck Accidents and Your Best Course of Action

Did you know that at any time during the day about 660,000 American drivers are using their phone or electronic device while driving? This isn't meant to scare you, instead to inform you of the potential dangers of distracted drivers. The stakes are high when engaging in distracted driving, and it might cost someone their life.

Trucking accidents are also among the most dangerous types of auto accidents. No matter how big your car is, you will often sustain an injury from semi truck accidents, so be extra cautious when passing them on the highway. Remember, if you can't see their mirrors, they can't see you.

Sometimes though, you can't do anything to prevent a tractor trailer crash. They might be driving distracted, texting, drinking alcohol, or any number of unsafe things that reckless drivers do every day. If you have been involved in a tractor trailer crash and sustained injuries, you might be entitled to compensation from either the driver or the company they work for.

To ensure you have all the information necessary to make a case, follow these steps:

One- Contact the police and calmly let them know you have been in an accident with a long haul truck. Describe the severity of the situation and any injuries you might have. If you are not able to do this yourself, as is, unfortunately, the case with many of these types of accidents, direct another person to call an ambulance.

Two- When the police arrive they will write a police report. Make no admission of guilt and say nothing to incriminate yourself. Some states interpret an apology as an admission of guilt. If you live in a state where that is the case, do notapologize. When you receive a copy of the police report, make an extra copy for safe keeping.

Three- As soon as possible, call an attorney to discuss your options. They will be able to help walk you through your next steps. Likely they will suggest for you to fill out your insurance claim before taking action. Once you do that, wait for your lawyer's next instructions and recommendations.

Getting into a tractor trailer crash can be completely devastating. Make sure you are protected from distracted truck drivers and other drivers who might use their mobile devices while on the road. If you have been in a crash, call a truck wreck attorney today for guidance and legal next steps.
