"It was like getting hit by a truck." That is one way people describe an event that has had an enormous, and often devastating, impact in their lives. Semi-trucks are not able to stop as fast as a car and they are unable to easily maneuver around other vehicles. The damage a semi-truck can do to other cars and vehicles is much greater than occurs in almost all other traffic accidents.
I’ve Been in a Truck Accident, What Should I Do?
If you have been involved in an accident with a semi-truck you are likely to feel scared about what will happen next. And if you have been injured, you may feel overwhelmed. Don’t let it get you down. Make a plan. Call Indianapolis attorney JR Emerson to learn your options. JR Emerson, an accident attorney suggests the following:
Seek Prompt Medical Attention:
If you have survived an accident caused by a negligent truck driver you need to get medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you feel fine, internal injuries such as brain damage or a spinal cord injury frequently go undetected without a prompt medical exam. Just as important, seeking immediate medical attention provides you with evidence as to the cause of your injuries. Such evidence can help your trucking accident lawyer to prove that the truck accident was the cause of your injuries.
While evidence of your injuries and medical attention, just as important can be evidence from the scene of the accident. Ask the police to photograph the accident scene. If you are well enough and have access to a camera, take pictures of the accident scene on your own. Also, you should preserve the car, truck, or van that was involved in the truck accident until you speak with an attorney. Call Indianapolis truck accident lawyer JR Emerson to learn your options. Call 317-969-8000.
