What should I do if I was injured in a commercial truck accident in Georgia?

Answer:

Steps to Take After a Truck AccidentIf you have been injured in a commercial truck accident, the first thing you need to do is make sure that you seek medical attention and get treated for anything that might be bothering you. Often, injuries don’t reveal themselves until a day or two after the accident.

The first thing that happens is your body goes through a stage in which it produces a lot of adrenaline. As a result, you may not feel initially injuries that you in fact have suffered. As soon as you start feeling those injuries, it’s important to make sure that you get checked out, both to get the treatment and to have your injuries documented. Insurance companies love to point to the days that have gone by before someone gets treated. It’s important to make sure that you get that treatment and that you get the documentation necessary.

The next thing to do is to contact a personal injury attorney who has experience in working through commercial vehicle accidents. Commercial vehicle accidents are very different from regular motor vehicle accidents because there’s a lot more evidence that needs to be preserved. There is an entirely different set of rules and regulations, too, that applies to professional drivers such as truck drivers. The sooner an injury attorney can get to gathering that information and investigating the claim, the better off they can leave you in your personal injury case.
