What to Expect After Your Truck Accident

A trucking accident can leave you hurt, confused and unsure of what to do next.  You know that you suffered, and that someone else was responsible.  But how do you go about receiving fair compensation? Henry C. Dailey Jr., P.C. can provide you with the following steps to get started:
First, seek the appropriate medical care.  Not only will this protect your health, which is the most important thing, but it will help you collect compensation for your injuries.  The documents generated by healthcare visits provide evidence of how you suffered during your accident, and why.  This evidence can be used during negotiations as well as in a trial.
Second, file a claim.  Although you can do this on your own, it is helpful to have the assistance of an experienced truck accident lawyer in Birmingham.  He or she will know the exact person or entity against whom you must file your claim—a matter that is especially significant in the case of a trucking accident.  You may need to involve an individual driver, a trucking company, an insurance organization or an entirely different party.  Seek experienced legal counsel for this step, since each case is different.
Third, keep track of your transportation costs.  If you needed to have your vehicle repaired or replaced, or if you had to begin taking public transportation, these are all expenses that should be recorded.  Doing so will provide additional evidence of the compensation to which you are entitled.
Fourth, communicate appropriately with the involved parties.  This task, too, is best to leave up to your trucking accident lawyer.  It is easy for an accident victim to say the wrong thing to the involved parties, and inadvertently give them a way to deny compensation.  Channeling all communication through your lawyers, who are used to dealing with such parties, is a much safer approach.
Fifth, discuss your options for compensation.  Your trucking accident lawyers will explain how to document the negative effects of the accident—such as lost wages, homemaker services, and other expenses resulting from the crash.  They will also have familiarity with all of the various options.
