You are in your car, stopped a red light when all of the sudden you feel an impact to the back of your car. Your body tosses and turns inside your vehicle and you are in shock. You come to learn that your car was hit from behind by a truck.
Before you know it, police are on the scene. You start getting calls from insurance companies asking you for a statement. You are in pain but you can’t find a doctor that will treat you. You begin to get letters and forms in the mail. You’ve never done this before, and you are just as in shock as when you were originally hit from behind by that truck. Worst of all you are in pain. What should you do? Hire a lawyer!
Motor vehicle accidents where trucks are involved often times are the most injury-causing and most fatal. These large trucks severely outweigh smaller vehicle on the road. What may have been a tap from a small sedan can cause significant damage when that same impact occurs from a truck.
In order to guide you through this process, it is important that you hire an attorney. An experienced attorney will assist you in the process following a truck accident. This includes assisting you in preparing all insurance documents (including a No-Fault application) and dealing with the insurance companies following this accident. It is further important to contact an attorney as soon as possible as insurance companies for trucks are notoriously aggressive in attempting to have injured people sign their rights to bring a lawsuit for minimal money in the days following a truck accident.
