Trucking accidents often result in very significant injuries, damages, and even wrongful deaths. Typically, the value of these cases is much higher than ordinary accident cases. Because so much money could be at stake, the trucking companies act fast to defend the case. They hire experts to investigate the fresh evidence. Trucking companies send out private investigators to get witness statements. The private investigators may even try to sway the testimony or try to persuade the witness not to get involved.

By the time that you leave the emergency room, the trucking company may have already built their defenses.

This is why it is so important to get an experienced, skilled, and hardworking trucking accident attorney involved right away.

The PA truck attorneys at RG Injury Law have handled hundreds of trucking accident cases. We know what needs to be done, how to get it done, and we start your case right away. Our speed and expertise often offset the early start by the trucking company defendants. We send out our own private investigators and experts to preserve the evidence and develop your case.

RG Injury Law will send out an expert certified in trucking accident reconstruction. The accident reconstruction expert will go the scene to photograph and document the evidence. They will take measurements based on the physical damage and road markings to calculate speed, direction, braking, etc. They will inspect the vehicles involved in the accident for damage and mechanical issues. All commercial trucks on the road today have Event Data Recorders (EDR). EDR is what many people refer to as the “black box.” Our experts can preserve and download to the data contained on the EDR. EDR data includes vital information such as time, distance, speed, braking, etc.

What Should You Do After an Accident?

Dos

  • Immediately call for medical help if someone is injured.
  • Call the police. They will document the accident and gather facts for legal purposes. If you don’t call the police, it is your word against the other person’s.
  • Report the accident to your insurance agent as soon as possible.
  • Exchange information with the other parties involved, such as address and phone number. If it’s a car accident get the license plate number; make, model and year of the vehicle; driver’s insurance information; car registration number; driver’s license number.
  • Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses. Keep in mind; if it was a car accident, any passengers involved in the accident are NOT witnesses.
  • Take pictures of the accident, damage to the vehicle, and the area around the accident.
  • Collect any physical evidence that could have caused the accident.
  • Gather details from the accident: draw a diagram of the accident; note the date and time; the type of weather; the location of the accident—including any landmarks.
  • Call RG Injury Law at 717.656.5000 to talk for free with an attorney with experience in trucking accidents.

Don’ts

  • Don’t panic. Remain calm and call for help.
  • Don’t leave the scene of the accident.
  • Don’t discuss the accident with anyone and blame anyone, including yourself.
  • Don’t forget to document and take pictures of all damages, especially your vehicle, if in a car accident.
  • Don’t wait. The longer you wait to get legal advice, the harder it is to prove your case.
  • Don’t speak to anybody from the at-fault person’s insurance company before consulting a lawyer. If you give a statement, it may be used against you in the future.
