Question:

What should I do if I was injured in a commercial truck accident in Southwest Florida?

Answer:

We had a recent case for a client whose husband was in the hospital with severe injuries, and he ultimately succumbed to those injuries as a result of a truck hitting his motorcycle. She wanted to know what the first steps are that needed to be done.

The first step that needs to be done is to try to preserve as much evidence as you can. Oftentimes the insurance company for the trucking company knows that there can be major injuries, so they will send an investigator to the scene of the accident. In this particular case, the defense attorney in the case was actually at the scene of the accident. They’ll act quickly, so what you need to do is make sure you hire an attorney that understands they also need to act quickly to get an investigation done to the vehicles, to preserve evidence, including preserving the vehicles, to take statements of witnesses, and to start to build the case from day one.
