As the Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research (ITSMR) reports, there were over 4,200 injury collisions involving large trucks in New York in 2019. That same year, there were 80 fatal collisions involving large trucks. Both injury collisions and fatal collisions may entitle the victims or their families to compensation.
Is there anything you can do to make your case run more smoothly? Yes. Immediately after the collision, you can stay on the scene to talk to the police, take photos of the crash site, and get the truck driver’s insurance information.
Later on, if you did not require emergency medical services, you can make a doctor’s appointment to get your injuries checked and treated. All of these steps can create a paper trail to show that the collision happened and that it caused your injuries.
Finally, there is one more thing you can do: when you are ready to start seriously considering your legal options, get in touch with a law firm that handles truck collision cases. Legal representation can help you to seek compensation without having to devote all of your time and energy to a lawsuit.
