What is the first thing I should do if I have been injured in a Florida truck accident?Return to Video FAQs
Well, the first thing you should do, is if you’re in pain or you are hurt, you need to immediately see a doctor. But to the extent it’s possible for you or a friend, or a loved one, anyone to look at that scene and try to take as many photographs as possible. In these big trucking accidents there’s always evidence at the scene, and that evidence can disappear. Typically, these big trucking companies will send in their own people immediately to do a full investigation and the extent that you delay in doing that investigation, and hopefully consulting with an experienced lawyer, you are hurting your case. You need to get a team out there that knows what their doing to acquire as much evidence as possible that relates to the negligence of that trucking company in hurting you.
