A truck accident may be one of the most frightening experiences you will ever go through. You may have serious physical injuries and intense post-traumatic stress.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a semi truck accident, the first and most important thing you should do is immediately seek medical attention for any injuries you may have suffered. Then, call Kammholz Messina, LLP, at 877-668-4606. Our attorneys will immediately begin advocating on your behalf.
Collect Information at the Accident Scene
After a truck accident, It is important to write down the names of other drivers involved in the crash as well as anyone who witnessed the accident. Remember to keep any documents that you receive, such as insurance information and police reports. If you have a camera, take photos of the accident scene and the damage done to your vehicle.
Once you have received medical care, call Kammholz Messina, LLP. We will immediately begin investigating the accident and interviewing witnesses. It is important to conduct the investigation while the evidence is intact and the witnesses have fresh memories of the accident. New York no-fault laws require you to file a car accident claim within 30 days of the accident, so you will want to act quickly.
Truck accident cases are more complex than car accident cases because there is more evidence to review. Our attorneys will work hard to determine what caused the accident. We will not hesitate to work with accident reconstruction experts, coming up with new and unique ways to verify how the accident occurred.
Do Not Give a Statement to the Insurance Company
After a truck accident, your insurance company or the truck driver's insurance company may contact you and ask you to provide a written or recorded statement. It is vitally important not to speak to anyone before you have sought legal counsel.
At Kammholz Messina, LLP, we know the various insurance companies that come into play in truck accidents. We will work to get you maximum compensation for your medical bills and lost wages.
