Learn what necessary steps to take after a truck accident to ensure you maximize your compensation and protect your rights.
Get Necessary Treatment
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident in the state of Arizona, some of the things you should do first is make sure you get to your medical providers and get the treatment you need. Trucks can cause some serious injuries, and you want to make sure you get those evaluated and treated.
Follow Doctor’s Orders
Next, you want to make sure that you follow your doctor’s orders, that you take care of yourself and do everything you can to get yourself back to full strength as soon as possible. If possible, you or someone with you should take photographs of the scene, all of the vehicles involved, and broad pictures of the scene to get as much information as you can.
The next thing you should do is make sure you hire an attorney who can preserve the evidence. There’s a lot of electronic data on trucks that will go away quickly if it’s not preserved, so you want somebody to help you make sure you get all of that information preserved, make sure witnesses don’t disappear, that they’ve had a chance to be interviewed before all of that happens.
Hire the Right Attorney
Make sure you hire the right attorney. Hire somebody who deals with trucking cases on a regular basis. Hire a trial lawyer so you’ve got somebody who knows what they’re doing, knows the process, and is willing to go as far as necessary to make sure that you get a fair settlement or resolution for your case.
