Avoiding Mistakes After a Truck Accident | Protect Your Rights
If you’re here, chances are you were involved in a truck accident. Very often, I see common mistakes that people make when they’re involved in truck accidents. The number one mistake is not advising either the police officer or the medical personnel at the scene that you were injured. Oftentimes, individuals may be experiencing pain, be it the shoulder, the knee, the back, the neck, but they’re not saying anything. I see that as a mistake.
I see also a mistake in not calling 911. Oftentimes, nobody calls 911. They exchange information, but the police never show up, the ambulance personnel never show up, and the accident isn’t documented. That can be a problem as well. I see a problem in that clients take too long to seek the advice of counsel. I had a client call me the other day who waited two months before contacting me about the accident. You want to get competent counsel to advise you as early as possible.
