Know what to expect after you're hurt in a truck crash

Truck accidents can happen suddenly and change your life immediately. Whether it's a truck driver who falls asleep behind the wheel or a driver who merges unexpectedly, dangerous drivers put your life at risk.

There are several primary causes of truck crashes. These include:

  • Drowsy drivers
  • Drivers who daydream
  • Reckless drivers
  • Speeding drivers
  • Drivers who take phone calls behind the wheel
  • Drivers who become distracted by texts
  • Vehicle malfunctions

In any case, a person who is negatively impacted by a truck accident deserves a chance to hold the driver responsible for their actions.

What happens after a truck crash?

The first thing that happens after a truck crash is an investigation by the police. You'll call 911 and inform the authorities of the incident. When they arrive, those who are injured will go to the hospital, while those who are not may remain at the scene. If you're staying at the scene, try to obtain witness information, the other driver's insurance information and details about the crash. The sooner you write down what happened, the better. It's normal for memories to become foggier as time passes, so it's best to jot down everything you remember as soon as you can.

The next step is to get in touch with your attorney. Your attorney will begin the claims process for you, so you can focus on getting medical attention or taking care of those you love who have been hurt. Our site has more on the steps that take place after a crash and what you should expect when working with an attorney.
