What should I do after a commercial vehicle accident?
If you’re seriously injured in a commercial truck accident, of course the first thing you have to worry about is your medical treatment at the scene. If you can, be aware of what’s going on around you. If there are witnesses that come up to you and say, “Hey, I saw everything that happened,” try to get their number or their name, because many times, when the police get to an accident scene, things are kind of chaotic and they may not get the names and numbers of all the witnesses. If you can do that, it’s really important.Going forward, you may have some obligations as far as filing a claim with your car insurance company, even though this truck may have been at fault for your accident. Your medical expenses and lost wages are going to be covered through the no-fault provisions of your car insurance policy, so you have an obligation to file an application for those benefits within 30 days. You want to make sure you do that as quickly as you can.
