What mistakes should I avoid after a truck accident?
There are some common mistakes that we’ve seen regularly from people who have been involved in a truck accident. One is not seeking medical treatment or not seeking medical treatment right away. Another mistake is not following a doctor’s treatment plan or protocol. If your doctor prescribes physical therapy for you three times a week for six weeks, make sure you go to every single visit.
Another common mistake we see is people hiring the wrong attorneys. You need to hire an attorney who’s experienced in personal injury and insurance claims, because truck accident cases are different than car cases. There are different things that need to be requested, different things that need to be investigated. It’s very unique and you need to hire an attorney who is going to prepare that case for trial from the get-go. You also need to document the truck accident at the time of the accident. Nowadays, people have cell phones; there’s no reason not to snap a few pictures of the accident scene. Also, make sure you call the police, so they can prepare a police report as well.
