What To Do after a Truck Accident

  • Before anything else, seek medical attention if you have been hurt.
  • Get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
  • Collect as much information as possible: insurance and contact information of people involved in the accident, pictures/videos of vehicles involved, etc.
  • File a police report or incident report by calling 911.
  • Hire an experienced personal injury attorney from Sweet Lawyers.
