What To Do if You Are Involved in aN 18-wheeler Accident

If you are in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, your first priority should be your safety. While there are some steps you can take to make filing your personal injury claim simpler, you should always seek immediate safety first. If you are involved in a truck accident you should:

  • Move away from traffic or danger if possible
  • Call 911 and request medical assistance
  • If you are able, collect the drivers contact information and their employers information
  • Give a police statement and collect the officers badge number
  • Seek professional medical assistance

It's recommended that you don't talk about the accident with the other drivers involved and avoid discussing the accident with the other drivers' insurance company. If you are involved in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, it may be in your best interest to enlist the expertise of an attorney as soon as possible.

Common Types of Truck Accidents

Commercial truck drivers are held to incredibly high standards because of the dangers that their large vehicles pose. Commercial truckers drive for a living, so it is only normal to expect that they operate their vehicles professionally and safely. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When a trucker fails to adhere to state traffic laws or chooses to ignore federal safety regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the commercial trucker could put an average motorist at risk of injury or even death.

Big rig truck accidents can include the following:

  • Vehicle rollovers
  • Trailer jackknifing
  • Multiple car pileup
  • Explosions or oil fires
  • T-bone, rear-end, and head-on collisions
  • Cargo overloads leading to fall offs, spills, or rollovers
  • Toxic exposure to hazardous material in cargo

Big rig trucks can cause significant damage to innocent motorists. In addition to property damage, any accident involving a commercial vehicle can involve serious injuries and fatalities. Our clients should not have to pay for these damages, especially when a negligent truck driver or trucking company caused the accident.
