What to Do after a Truck Accident

There are certain steps you must take after a truck accident to protect yourself and your legal rights. If you have questions about what to do after a trucking accident, contact a lawyer right away.

  • Call 911 to report the truck accident immediately. Notify your insurance company that you were involved in an accident.
  • Seek qualified medical treatment for any injuries you suffered. If you do not have health insurance, contact a qualified personal injury lawyer who can help you a doctor.
  • Do not give a written or recorded statement to the trucking company, an investigator hired by the trucking company, or the trucking company’s insurance provider.
  • Do not sign anything from your insurance company or that of the at-fault party before consulting with an attorney.
  • In the case of serious injury or wrongful death, hire an experienced trucking accident lawyer in Houston as quickly as possible.

Key Questions to Ask

Dealing with the aftermath of a truck accident can be overwhelming, especially if you were seriously injured. After a truck accident, you may have many questions, including:

  • How am I going to pay for my medical bills?
  • How can I afford the long-term medical treatment I need?
  • What if my injuries are so bad that I am unable to return to work?
  • If I can no longer work, how will I provide for my family?
  • The insurance company says it wants to do the right thing, but why won’t it pay my medical bills?
  • Why won’t the insurance company compensate me for missed work, pain and suffering, and other losses?

Featured Testimonial

When I was rear-ended by a commercial truck, I needed an aggressive attorney to pursue the trucking company responsible for putting the driver on the road. Sutliff & Stout cared about me enough to help me find quality medical assistance for my neck injury. I would recommend their services to anyone in need of help.
