What are common mistakes people make if they have been injured in a truck accident?
A couple of months ago we got a phone call from a young lady who had been involved in a trucking accident. We asked her when it happened. She said, “Oh, it happened a year ago, maybe a little bit more or a little bit less.” One of the most important questions that people ask is, “What are some of the common mistakes that I should avoid making in order to best prepare and present my truck accident case?” This is one of them.
First and foremost, you should hire an attorney immediately. An attorney can hire experts that can get the information that you need in order to prove your case. An important point to make here is what happened and what you can prove happened are two different things. By hiring an attorney early, you’re able to go out to the scene, look for skid marks, get downloads from the trucks, and even look for video evidence. It’s very important to hire an attorney early to begin the investigation before the evidence and the witnesses disappear.
The second thing is to go and see a doctor if you’re hurt. Be sure to document all of your injuries and be sure to follow the treatment plan that the doctor prepares for you. The final mistake that people make is they give a recorded statement to the insurance company that represents the trucking company. That is something we would never recommend that you do without your lawyer present.
