After a severe traffic accident, the first thing you should do is to obtain the medical treatment you need. You may not feel like you are severely injured, but we recommend undergoing a thorough medical evaluation. The adrenaline caused by the shock of the truck accident could be masking some of your pain and injuries. Receiving a comprehensive medical assessment and following up with all of your doctor's orders, referrals, and prescriptions will help you prove that you became injured because of the car accident, and assist you in your claim for compensation.
If you have been involved in a truck accident with a Central Freight Lines, Inc. truck driver, we recommend discussing your case with one of our lawyers before you sign a settlement agreement. Initial settlement offers are typically far too low. The insurance company hopes that you will sign the agreement quickly so they can close the case and avoid paying you a fair amount of money.
Next, you will need to document every detail of the truck accident. Collect the police reports, witness statements, and take photos of the truck accident scene if you can do so safely. Keep a journal and write down everything you remember about the accident before it happened and after it happened. For example, if the truck driver came up to you and said, “I'm sorry - that was my fault,” be sure you write it down. Likewise, if you notice anything suspicious about the truck driver, such as the smell of alcohol on their breath or slurred speech, write down these details because they could demonstrate that the driver was intoxicated.Contact a Charlotte Truck Accident Lawyer Today
