What Should I Do After A Truck Accident?

You are driving down the road and suddenly you feel as though you have been hit by a truck, because you have. Call 911 immediately and report any injuries. Even if no one has been hurt, you should still call the police and report the accident in Sacramento and Roseville.

Top Tips Following An Accident With A Truck

If you are able, you need to start documenting what happened. Try to gather the following information from everyone involved:

  • Driver's license numbers
  • License plate numbers
  • Insurance information
  • Driver contact information
  • Names and contact numbers of any passengers
  • Witness information
  • Notes on the weather and road conditions

You should also take as many pictures as possible of the accident scene, the damage to the vehicles, your injuries, the position of the vehicles and the surrounding area.

Once you have gathered all the information, you will have to call your insurance company to report the accident. Just give basic information, never admit fault to anyone you speak with and don't sign anything.

Your next call should be to an experienced personal injury law firm. At Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP, our skilled attorneys help clients in the Roseville and Sacramento areas, and we can help you with your recovery.
