Hire an attorney

If you’ve been involved in an accident with a semi-truck, it’s in your best interests to hire a personal injury attorney right away. They can help protect your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you’re entitled to. They can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and provide you with legal advice throughout the process. 

 In addition to helping you understand your rights, your attorney can help you navigate the complexities that are often associated with this kind of case. Just as important, they’ll shield you from harassment from the semi-truck insurance company.  

Don’t rush to accept a settlement offer

The truck driver’s insurance company may offer you a settlement soon after the accident. It’s important to remember that the initial offer is likely going to be much lower than what you’re entitled to and what you should receive. Don’t rush to accept the offer or sign anything without first consulting an attorney and reviewing your options. Accepting an offer or signing a release could prevent you from obtaining additional compensation for your injuries and damages. 

Be careful what you say

Be careful about what you say to the insurance company. They may ask you to provide a recorded statement about the accident. It’s best to avoid saying until you have your attorney with you to advise you on what you should and shouldn’t answer. Anything you say can be used against you in the future, so it’s important to have a legal representative by your side.

 Don’t admit fault or say anything that could be interpreted as an admission of guilt. Stick to the facts and avoid speculating about how the accident occurred. Better yet, don’t have any conversations with the insurance company other than telling them the name and contact information of your attorney. Stay calm and polite, but refer all other questions to your attorney.

Seek medical attention

Even if you don’t think you’ve been badly injured, it’s very important that you speak with a doctor soon after an accident. Sometimes injuries may not become apparent until days or weeks after the accident. By seeking medical attention, you can receive a proper diagnosis and treatment, and create a record of your injuries.

 Keep records of everything related to the accident including medical bills, repair bills, and any other expenses you incur. This will help you build a case for the compensation you deserve. Also, keep a record of all correspondence with the insurance company correspondence. This means keeping the emails, letters, and any voicemails they might leave you.
