Critical Actions To Take After A Trucking Accident

If you or a loved one was involved in a trucking accident, you may have questions. You could be wondering what actions to take immediately following the incident.

Additionally, you may be unsure what compensation you are entitled to receive to help you resolve the financial hardships you are facing. At Adams Legal Group, we have helped drivers injured in motor vehicle wrecks in Kentucky recover damages for:

  • Lost wages and reduced future earnings capacity
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship

Tragically, motor vehicle wrecks involving large semitrucks can often result in a fatality. We will investigate the circumstances surrounding your case if your loved one was killed in a trucking accident. Our team has experience evaluating whether a wrongful death lawsuit is appropriate and will take the necessary legal actions on your behalf.

What Should You Do If You Are Involved In A Truck Accident?

  • Move to safety: Many trucking accidents occur on busy highways in Louisville and in the surrounding area. If you are still able to drive your vehicle, pull over as close to the shoulder as possible to help prevent other drivers becoming entangled in the accident.
  • Seek medical attention: If someone suffered serious injuries inside of your car, do not try moving them on your own. Instead, call 911 and wait for paramedics to arrive to assist with those who suffered serious injuries. If you believe your injuries are minor, it is still important to see a doctor. Visiting a doctor will ensure you are properly diagnosed and strengthen your claim with an insurance company.
  • Speak with an attorney: Navigating the legal process on your own can be complicated. An experienced lawyer can negotiate directly with an insurance company on your behalf to secure a settlement that accurately compensates you for the injuries you have suffered.
