Following a crash, you should seek medical treatment. When seeking medical treatment, you should provide the physician with as much information as you can about the accident and your symptoms so they can make the most thorough assessment possible. It is important that you follow all of your physician’s orders.
We also strongly advise that you file and request a copy of a police report, ensure all evidence relevant to your case is preserved, and talk to an attorney as soon as possible. The statute of limitations on your truck accident claim is three years. As soon as you experience a collision, the clock is ticking on your right to bring forth a claim.
It is also important to remember that you do not have to provide a written or recorded statement to the truck driver’s insurance company. Also, it is not in your best interest to provide a medical records authorization to the truck driver’s insurance company. Often, insurance companies will try to use this information to increase your degree of fault and minimize your degree of injury.
