What should I do if I was injured in a truck accident in Augusta?
I received a call yesterday from a man from Thomson, Georgia who was involved in a bad truck accident on I-20. He asked me for tips on how to handle his truck case. If you’re reading this, you may be having those same questions.
I informed the man that after he received medical treatment, he should not talk to any insurance adjusters for the trucking company. Trucking companies have a team of adjusters and investigators and engineers that go to the scene of trucking accident cases and try to contact the injured victims. Under no circumstances should the client talk to the insurance company. I advised the client to get the appropriate medical care and follow the doctor’s advice.
Lastly, I advised the client to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer. Experienced truck accident lawyers are familiar with the federal safety rules governing trucks. They’re familiar with trucking policies and procedures for the trucking industry, as well. Truck accident attorneys also have access to expert witnesses who can help preserve the evidence on the truck. Experts need to get in and preserve the data recorders that record the speed and the brake times of the trucks. Also, the trucker’s logbooks need to be preserved. Given all this, it’s very important to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer after these types of collisions.
