A Serious Trucking Accident Can Happen At Any Moment
Being a victim of an 18-wheeler accident can cause life-long physical injuries, mental trauma, and financial stress. Serious trucking accidents are defended immediately after the vehicle crash. A trucking company may send representatives to investigate the crash scene the day of the accident. It is imperative to retain personal injury attorney and experts as soon as possible. You can protect yourself by following these critical steps:
- Call 911 immediately
- Remain at the crash scene
- Take photos or videos of the crash scene
- Exchange insurance information with people involved in the crash
- Speak to a truck accident lawyer as soon possible
Passenger vehicles are equipped with recording devices, often referred as a black box. Semi-Trucks are equipped with additional data recording devices, such as telematic control units, video cameras, and accident avoidance technology. It is imperative that this data is preserved for purposes of litigation.
