Pasadena Truck Accident Lawyer
Trucks serve as a vital cog in the California economy. Yet they can also be extremely hazardous to other motorists and pedestrians given their large size.
The injuries caused by such a large vehicle can be catastrophic, causing lifelong physical, mental and financial difficulties.
If a truck accident has impacted you or someone you love, it’s essential that you know how to protect yourself –and your legal rights — following the incident.
What To Do in the Event of a Truck Accident
Establishing liability after a truck collision is often more difficult than what is typically seen with car collisions. This is because there are a variety of parties involved who may be responsible for the accident, in full or in part. These parties include the truck driver, the trucking company, firms that handle loading and maintenance of the truck and the truck manufacturer.
If you’re involved in a truck accident, it’s important to follow some smart safety protocols:
- Call the authorities and medical personnel
- Seek treatment for any injuries
- Gather witness statements and contact information
- Take photos and videos of vehicle damage, the scene and any injuries
- Keep track of all medical bills, lost wages etc.
