Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on the road, ad with the prevalence of home delivery services like Blue Apron and Amazon Prime, there are more trucks on the road than ever. Trucking accidents are often severe, and can result in significant personal injury. Additionally, there are often several insurance companies involved and filing claims can get confusing fast. The attorneys at Sahar Malek Law are highly experienced in dealing with complicated insurance practices, and we can help you to navigate this tricky situation.
Know Your Rights:
When it comes to an accident between a truck and a personal vehicle, dealing with a large company can seem intimidating. It is important for trucking accident vehicles to understand that their rights as victims as exactly the same as they are in an accident between two personal videos. You have a right to call 911 for medical help and for a police report, you have a right to take photos and videos at the scene, and you have a right to collect both the drivers information and the trucking company information. If you still feel unsure, call us for support.
Understanding your Injuries:
Considering how large trucks are as compared to cars, trucking accidents can lead to devastating injury. Below are the most common injuries sustained by trucking accident victims. Understanding what you are most likely to experience can help to expedite your medical care following a collision.
- Neck and back injuries.
- Broken bones.
- Internal bleeding & other internal injuries.
- Seat belt injuries.
- Spinal cord injuries (which can include paralysis).
- Cuts, scrapes, and lacerations.
- Head injuries.
Remember when you are driving near trucks that if you can not see their rearview mirrors, that the truck driver can not see you. Pass trucks quickly and decisively. Spending an extended time in a blind spot can lead to an accidental collision.
