  • Avoid giving any statements.
  • Stay put and do not allow anyone to move you or your vehicle unless there is a risk of further injury. Wait for paramedics and police to arrive.
  • Seek medical attention and provide a thorough account of all injuries right after the accident.
  • If there are no apparent injuries, photograph all vehicle damage, including the VIN and license plate for identification.
  • Document all injuries with photos, no matter how minor, as insurance companies might later dispute specific injuries from the accident.
  • Collect all relevant insurance policies from the trucking company and your Group Health Insurance information to facilitate the processing of payments for your treatment and lost wages during your claim against the negligent party.
  • Immediately inform your insurance company about the accident, as your policy likely requires prompt notification to maintain coverage.
  • Schedule a follow-up visit with your family doctor.
  • Contact The Perazzo Law Firm as soon as possible.

What to do After an Accident involving a Truck

Victims of truck accidents can experience a wide range of injuries, many of which can be life-altering. Injuries such as broken bones, facial trauma, brain damage, and loss of limbs can cause significant mental and economic hardship. Trucking companies that are found liable for these injuries must compensate the victims. The Perazzo Law Firm is dedicated to ensuring that victims of truck accidents receive the compensation they deserve for their suffering and losses. We encourage truck accident victims to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach offices to schedule a FREE initial consultation to discuss their claim. The Perazzo Law Firm offers its truck accident clients representation with no upfront costs, and we only get paid when our clients receive compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, and losses.
