One obvious difference in trucking accidents versus other auto wrecks are the types of injuries involved. Due to their large size and weight, accidents with commercial trucks typically cause more severe injuries than other types of auto accidents which might include brain or spine injuries, broken bones, amputations, burns, other catastrophic injuries, or even death. In addition to the severity of injuries, a tractor-trailer accident can be much more complex than a wreck involving another car. Commercial trucking companies and drivers are governed by federal laws that could affect liability in these cases. Sometimes determining who is at fault in a semi-truck collision is not as straight-forward as it is in a typical car accident. Also, in most cases, owners and operators of commercial trucks are required to have a minimum amount of liability insurance—usually a commercial policy—that provides better coverage for injured parties as opposed to ordinary automobile accidents. If you have been injured in a trucking collision, don’t try to navigate these complex issues on your own. Let semi wreck lawyer Flora Templeton Stuart help you get the compensation you deserve in your truck injury case.
If you have been injured in a semi accident, seek medical attention immediately. The police should come to the scene of the accident and file a report. If possible, get names and contact information of witnesses and take photos of the vehicles and scene (such as damage to vehicles, skid marks, road signs, or anything that might have contributed to the wreck). This is especially important in commercial truck accidents as trucking companies sometimes work quickly to destroy vital evidence. Get the name, contact information, license number, trucking company name and insurance details from the truck driver. Write down details of the wreck including date, time, location, what happened to cause the accident and other details while they are fresh on your mind. Notify your insurance company of vehicle damage and injuries you sustained. Do not discuss the accident with the at-fault party’s insurance company before consulting with a semi wreck attorney.
