Knowing Where to Turn after a Car or Truck Accident

By John Page on September 20, 2017

Car and Truck Accident Attorney in MissouriTrucks, tractor trailers, and big rigs are very large and fast vehicles. When they collide with automobiles and smaller vehicles, serious and catastrophic injuries can result.

It is important to understand that in car and truck accident cases, the applicable statute of limitation deadline is in play, and time is of the essence. You should never delay in seeking legal representation.

If you have sustained injuries in a St. Louis Missouri car or truck accident, you may be entitled to a monetary recovery. Attorney John Page will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf take your case to trial if necessary.

Obtain Insurance Information from the Other Driver

Provided that you do not require immediate medical care, the first thing you should do after being involved in an accident, is to exchange license and registration information with the other driver. If a truck driver caused the accident, then the trucking company’s insurance company will most likely be on the hook.

Call 9-1-1

Calling 9-1-1 after a car or truck accident summons the police and ambulance services to the scene. You should attempt to be as complete and accurate as possible when describing your injuries, symptoms, and pain to emergency personnel.

Seek Immediate Follow-up Care at the Hospital

St. Louis car and truck accident victims should always seek immediate, same-day medical treatment at a hospital emergency room or urgent care facility, when sustaining injuries in an accident. Injuries, pain, and symptoms will often not manifest until well after the accident occurs. It’s always a good idea to get checked out by a medical professional. A significant delay in medical treatment might also have a negative impact on the value of your personal injury case—at least from the insurance company’s perspective.

Treat Conservatively and Consistently

It is important for injured car and truck accident victims to attend all scheduled medical appointments, to arrive on time for those appointments, and to stay for the entire appointment. If an insurance adjuster notices numerous missed appointments or long gaps in treatment, those deficiencies will reflect negatively on the settlement value of the case.
