What to Do When You’ve Been Involved in a Truck Accident in the Tampa Bay Area

If you have been involved in an accident with a truck, and plan to file a claim, here are some steps you can follow immediately after your injury to help your truck accident lawyer build a stronger case.

Don’t blame yourself when talking to witnesses or trucking insurance companies

Make sure that you do not claim fault when you are talking about the accident to anyone, especially if they represent the insurance company of the trucker who struck you. Insurance agents will do whatever they can to divert responsibility from their own clients. That means anything you say to them is going to be used against you. You may not be responsible for an accident even if you are aware you made some mistakes. After all, more than one person can make a mistake in an accident.

You are not required by law to speak to these insurance companies, and it’s best to let your lawyer handle any interactions with them if you plan to be represented. Provide them with contact information they can use to reach you or your lawyer, but no other details.
