Truck Accident Attorney
We all rely upon the big rig trucks to bring us the supplies we need for everyday life. But when we see a big truck on the highway, we usually know enough to try and stay out of its way. Big trucks take longer to stop than cars, have less maneuverability, and may often have drivers with long routes who are fatigued or who are unfamiliar with the local area. All of these things can lead to dangerous accidents in which the driver of a car that collides with a large truck is seriously injured or killed. Injuries that occur after a truck accident can involve costly treatment and rehabilitation that takes months or even years and may also involve the complex interaction of several parties, from the truck insurance company to a truck parts manufacturer. That is why it’s essential to hire a Pennsylvania truck accident attorney like Michael A. Snover, Esq. if you’ve been hurt in a truck accident.
What to Do After a Truck Accident
The first step after an accident aside from safety issues, is to identify the actors, and witnesses, and to preserve evidence. Always call the police to investigate the accident even if you are not sure that you are injured. Call 911 for an ambulance if anyone is badly hurt. Exchange information with the driver of the truck and get information about their employer. Get the contact information of any witnesses at the scene, and take photos of the accident scene, the vehicles, the roadway, and any injuries. Write down any details that you remember about the accident as you may need them later. Always seek medical attention when injured and keep documentation of the doctor or emergency room visits.
Types of Compensation for Truck Accident Injury
Since truck accident injuries are often severe, the compensation that is needed after one of these injuries is often extensive. In addition to the cost of medical or surgical treatment and rehabilitation, there will be the expenses related to time off work and the need for medical equipment at home. Compensation can be obtained for lost wages, for lost earning capacity and loss of future earnings, as well as for pain and suffering. A severe truck accident injury can change someone’s life forever and can affect the relationships that they have with their spouse, family members and friends. This kind of injury may even make it impossible for the injured party to return to the same job or occupation.
