What to Do After a Truck Accident

It is important to take the proper steps to protect your health and your rights. Here are some steps to take after a truck accident.

Seek Medical Attention

After a truck accident, your health and safety should be your top priority. Even if you do not feel injured, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent, but a doctor can evaluate you for any hidden injuries. Additionally, in order to file a claim for compensation, you will need to have medical records that show your injuries were caused by the accident.

Call the Police

Call the police and report the accident. The police will create a report that details the accident, which can be used as evidence in your claim for compensation.

Collect Evidence

If you are able, try to collect as much evidence as possible at the scene of the accident. Take photos of the scene, damage to your vehicle, and your injuries. Get the name and contact information of any witnesses to the accident. You should also get the truck driver's name, license number, and insurance information.

Do Not Admit Fault

It is important not to say anything that could be interpreted as admitting fault after a truck accident. Even a simple "I'm sorry" could be used against you later on. Do not make any statements to the truck driver, their insurance company, or anyone else at the scene of the accident. It is best to wait until you have spoken to a truck accident attorney to discuss your case before making any statements.

Call a Truck Accident Lawyer

It is important to consult with an experienced truck accident lawyer as soon as possible. A lawyer can review the details of your case and help you understand your legal options. They can also handle all the legal details of your case so you can focus on your recovery.

What Is the Statute of Limitations on Truck Accident Lawsuits in Adams County?

In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including truck accident claims, is two years from the date of the accident. If you do not file a claim within two years, you will likely lose your right to recover compensation.

In some cases, you may have more than two years to file a claim. However, these cases are rare and it is best to consult with a truck accident lawyer to determine how long you have to file a claim.

What Compensation Is Available for Truck Accident Victims?
