What to Do After an Owensboro Truck Accident

The first step after getting into a truck accident is to call 911. You should request police assistance and medical assistance if you are injured. If your injuries are not too severe, and you can safely do so, take scene photos. Try to get pictures of the vehicle damage, the surrounding scene, and whatever other aspects that will help resolve your claim. The more information you have, the better. Some details may not seem important at the time, but they could become a crucial part of the investigation.

Once the police arrive, they will document the accident scene and compile all the details into the official police report. This report can also be an essential piece of evidence in your case.

If you are not taken to the hospital from the accident scene, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Even if you don’t believe you are injured, it’s crucial to seek treatment. You could have internal injuries that aren’t immediately visible. Be sure to follow all instructions your doctor gives you. Please don’t delay as the defendant’s insurance company will use your delay in treatment in support of its defense.
