Truck Accidents

“I had a great experience with Davis & Gelshenen.”

~Davis & Gelshenen Client

Involvement in a truck accident can be scary and overwhelming. While your most critical concern is the safety and well-being of those involved, you also may be wondering:

  • How to deal with the insurance companies?
  • How will you pay your medical bills?
  • Who will pay for your car repairs?
  • How can you receive compensation for lost wages?
  • Whether you need a lawyer to help with your case?

What to do after a truck accident

A truck accident can be a very traumatic event.  Stress and injuries may affect your ability to think clearly.  How you react to the accident and the information that you obtain can be a critical element in your case. 

After an accident:

  • Be careful.  If you are in severe pain, wait for paramedics to arrive to assess your injuries.  Speak with other drivers and witnesses involved to obtain names, addresses and telephone numbers.
  • Make sure that you acquire each driver’s automobile insurance information including the name of the person insured on the vehicle, the company’s name and telephone number if known.
  • Contact the police to make an immediate report of the accident and remain at the scene until after an officer arrives.
  • Cooperate with the police in preparing an accident report. 
  • Photograph the exterior and interior of the vehicles involved in the accident.
  • Do not fill out any insurance documents, releases or provide recorded statements without first consulting with a lawyer. Be wary of early settlement offers from the insurance company!
  • If injured, consult with a physician.
