Every day you are likely to see a number of trucks and tractor trailers operating on the highway during your daily commute. Oftentimes, these truck drivers are operating their vehicles on little or no rest or fail to see you in their many "blind spots." Due to the size of these trucks, if an accident occurs your injuries can be much more severe than your normal auto accident. These injuries can range from neck and back pain, and broken bones to catastrophic injuries including spinal cord injuries (paraplegia and quadriplegia), brain damage, and unfortunately death.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a trucking accident, it is important that you seek medical treatment immediately. Your health is your and our number one priority. Oftentimes, injuries that result from a trucking accident do not manifest until days later. As such, seeking medical treatment immediately after an accident, even if you feel as though you are not injured, is a good idea. The following list are some actions you may want to take after an accident:
- Call 911 in the event that anyone involved in the accident is in need of medical attention.
- Use your cell phone to take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles involved in the accident, and any visible injuries that you have sustained.
- Write down as much information as you can about the involved vehicles and drivers in the accident. Most importantly, remember to take down the involved drivers contact, insurance and license plate information.
- Seek medical treatment and be honest with your doctors about how you feel and the symptoms that you may have.
- Do not speak with anyone about the auto accident, except your doctors.
