What Should You Do After A Truck Accident?

You should act quickly to get a qualified attorney on your side to help with important matters such as investigating and preserving evidence of how the accident occurred, answer your questions, and give you advice about what to do and how to proceed.

At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., we are known for being strong advocates for victims and know how to deal with big trucking companies and their huge, often uncaring insurance companies. We know how to take immediate steps to protect our clients' legal rights in truck accident cases and we do what we can to get the best compensation the law will permit for our clients.

We caution anyone out there who hesitates or waits before seeking the benefit of able legal counsel, because while he or she sits and waits, the trucking company and its insurance company have likely got a whole team of lawyers and investigators working around the clock to build up defenses and excuses aimed at defeating every claim made against them. Time is not on your side if you simply wait — instead, it is working against you.

Take Quick Action After a Truck Accident

After a truck accident, you should:

  • Get medical care and follow the instructions of your doctor.
  • Obtain the names and phone numbers of any witnesses.
  • Call the Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., at 504-433-5550. We will answer your questions about serious 18-wheeler accidents.
  • Refrain from talking to any insurance company representatives about the accident or your injuries. Instead, let your attorney do so, including reporting the accident if and when necessary.
  • Hold off washing the clothes you were wearing at the time of the accident, because this is important evidence. Instead, put your clothes in a clean plastic bag.
  • Wait to get the car repaired or allow it to be scrapped until after we document the damages, get appropriate repair estimates and take a couple of other necessary steps.
  • Collect your auto insurance and health insurance policies and pay stubs if you have missed work due to injuries from the accident.
