Charlotte Truck Accident FAQ

Truck accidents are terrifying experiences that can leave those involved severely injured or even dead. The massive size of a semi-truck is enough to crush any standard-size car. For this reason, truck drivers must be precautious drivers. Unfortunately, many truck accidents are the result of negligent drivers. 

Drowsy drivers or drivers who are speeding are frequently the cause of many devastating truck accidents. If you’re the victim of a Charlotte truck accident, you may have some questions about your accident and a related injury claim. 

Below are some frequently asked questions and answers that can help you through this stressful time. 

Should I Report My Accident?

Immediately after your accident, you should report your accident to the police. Having official documentation about your accident will strengthen your claim if you choose to pursue one. Describe every detail about your case in your police report, but be careful when talking about fault. Remember to also report any updates about your accident to the police. 

The testimony of an officer can turn the tide in determining if the truck driver was at fault for the accident. Their determination in the accident report will be a key piece of evidence in your claim.

Should I Receive Treatment for My Injuries?

Seek out medical attention immediately after your truck accident. Even if you’re not feeling hurt at the time of the accident, there could be other injuries that won’t surface until much later. Having a medical report about your injuries will help prove that any delayed injuries were the result of your truck accident. 

You should also consult with a therapist for your mental health. Receiving mental treatment is equally as important as physical treatment. 

Besides being an important act of self-care, meeting with your doctor and other healthcare providers as soon as possible after your accident can help your claim. You’ll be able to receive compensation if you’re able to prove through your medical paperwork that the reckless actions of the truck driver impacted your mental and emotional health. 

Should I Trust the Insurance Company?

Never trust insurance companies, because in many cases, they will only offer you the lowest settlement possible. It may be best to only talk to an insurance representative with your Charlotte truck accident attorney by your side.
