Why You Need an Tractor-Trailer Crash Attorney

If multiple defendants share liability for your accident, there should be sufficient insurance coverage for your damages even if your claim is expensive, but the insurer(s) involved may still try to delay, devalue, or deny your claim. With multiple defendants and insurance companies involved, you’ll probably need the help of a truck crash lawyer to identify liable parties, determine their percentages of fault, file multiple damage claims, negotiate for fair awards, and possibly file multiple lawsuits if reasonable settlements are not offered.

After you’ve called the police, you can protect your damage claim by taking these steps while waiting for law enforcement to arrive:

  • Take photos of the vehicles involved and the scene of the crash
  • Get contact information from witnesses
  • Report the wreck to your own insurer, but don’t give statements to other insurance company adjusters
  • Contact a truck crash lawyer

As soon as possible after the wreck, seek medical attention even if you don’t feel you’re seriously injured.
