Clients who come to my office who are involved in a truck accident will ask me, “What are the steps that we need to take after a truck accident? The first step is that you want to make sure that you get the medical bills paid. If there are lost wages, you want to make sure that you collect your lost wages. That requires notifying the insurance carrier. If you were operating the vehicle at the time or a passenger in the vehicle at time, it would be the insurance carrier that covers that vehicle. That’s one step we need to take.Another step we need to take is to notify the insurance carrier for the trucking company. We may be able to find that information on the police report. If not, we’ll deal directly with the trucking company and get that information from them. Those are the initial steps.
What you need to do is get yourself healthy. That requires that you seek the medical attention that you need. If the doctors are advising you to do a, b, c, and d, then you should do a, b, c, and d. Those are the initial steps.
