Truck drivers work hard, sometimes too hard and often drive while fatigued.  Some are not familiar with the local roadways and some are simply inexperienced. Every year, thousands of people are killed or sustain serious injuries in accidents involving commercial trucks. Tragically, many of these accidents are the result of negligent truck drivers and their employers. These accidents can result from poor driving, including the failure to yield the right of way to pedestrians, vehicles, bicyclists, as well as other violations of the relevant vehicle and traffic laws. Some accidents also involve the failure to properly maintain and/or equip the involved truck.

 WHAT TO DO AFTER A TRUCK ACCIDENT

 

Make Observations About The Truck Accident

Due to massiveness of trucks, truck accidents are usually much harsher than a usual car accident. You’ll need a truck accident attorney in Jersey City and Perth Amboy, NJ, but before you speak to one this information witll be helpful… Identify the witnesses so there will be someone to support your case if it goes to court. Write down their names and addresses and interview them. Ask them what they saw and make a note of phrases they used like “slammed into,” “plowed,” “speeding,” or “he ran the red light.” Beware of insurance representatives at the accident scene. It has been rumored that some insurance companies send adjusters to accident scenes in order to catch people off guard with incriminating questions or to have them sign away any rights they may have to future compensation.

See A Doctor Immediately After the Truck Accident

Schedule an appointment with your own doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Don’t let the insurance adjuster choose a doctor for you. You have the right to use a doctor of your choice.

Take Pictures Of Truck Accident and Injuries

Take pictures of your Truck as soon as possible after the accident. When the adjuster asks for proof of the accident, it is difficult to dispute a picture taken of your Truck at the accident scene. Pictures of the damage will help tell your story. If possible, take pictures of the other cars involved in the accident as well. These pictures will help supply information about the severity of the impact associated with your accident. Take pictures of your injuries before they heal. In many cases, the seat belt strap will bruise our clients across their shoulder and chest, but after several weeks those bruises heal. Months later, when the insurance adjuster is arguing that the crash was not very significant, pictures of your bruises and other injuries will help solidify your claim of injury.

  • Do give the other driver(s) your name, address, phone number, and vehicle registration number. If you’ve   collided with a parked Truck attach a note with this information to that vehicle. If you simply leave, you may be committing a ‘hit and run’ crime.
  • Do write down the particulars of the other driver(s) involved.
  • Do write down the statements and particulars of any witnesses.
  • Do sketch and write down what happened.
  • Do ask the investigating officer where you’ll be able to obtain a copy of the accident report that will be filed. You might want a copy for insurance purposes.

 

In order to obtain a just settlement of your claim, in a prompt and an expedient manner, the following suggestions and guidelines should be followed:

1. Follow Your Doctor’s Orders

It’s important that you follow all your doctor’s instructions. Keep all scheduled appointments. Return to your health care providers as often as necessary. Update your lawyer immediately if you see new or additional doctors or other health care providers. Their names, addresses and phone numbers are very important.

2. Keep A Daily Diary

You might wish to keep a daily or weekly diary of your injuries, treatment and progress. Your decision regarding this might be determined by the nature and severity of your particular injury. Such a diary might include the manner in which the truck accident affected your life; the frequency of pain and suffering and which parts of your body are affected; the types of pain such as “throbbing”, “stabbing” or “burning” sensation; and the types of medication taken, as well as the results obtained. 

3. To Whom Are You Speaking?

Let your attorney talk for you. Avoid discussing your truck accident with anyone except your attorney. Your own insurer may desire to take your statement. If you are made aware of this desire, immediately notify your lawyer’s office. Never speak to the other party’s insurer. If asked, call your attorney immediately.

4. Keep All Evidence for a Truck Accident Lawyer

Keep your prescription receipts, ambulance, hospital and medical bills, property damage estimates, and other evidence of your truck accident. If you keep a diary, log mileage incurred in obtaining your treatment. Otherwise, you might simply log your treatment, the date, and the office to which you traveled for treatment. Generally, keep a notation of the time you lose from work. If this time only amounts to a couple of days, further proof of loss (income tax returns for wage loss verification from the employer) may not be required.

Miscellaneous

If you come upon or receive any new information concerning the truck accident (additional witnesses, etc.), immediately inform your lawyer’s office. If you have taken any photographs, be sure to give them to your lawyer.

  • Do notify your insurance company of the truck accident. They will supply you with their claim forms.
  • Do begin keeping accurate records of any time you take off work because of this truck accident. (See Recovering Lost Wages.)
  • Do write Down Your Observations.
  • Do keep notes about your injuries. In 6 or 7 months, you might forget how it hurt just to get dressed, and the adjuster will try to make it seem like any description you give is an exaggeration. Write down your pain medications. These kinds of written documents can be very valuable when presenting your claim to the insurance adjuster or to a judge and jury in court.
  • Do keep Records of Expenses.

The adjuster will ask for proof of anything you claim as an expense. Be sure you keep receipts for prescriptions and household services such as lawn mowing, getting someone to cook for you, Truck rentals, and so forth. Keep each of those receipts so you can document every tough law firm on your side. Don’t go it alone.
