A Truck Accident Lawyer – 4 Step Advice

Tuesday, May. 17th 2022

Contacting a truck accident lawyer from Northland Injury Law is an important step after you are involved in a collision with a commercial truck; but any automobile accident, let alone one involving a large commercial vehicle presents immediate challenges that take precedence over a phone call with your lawyer. Even if there are no injuries involved, a car accident is about the last thing anyone wants to happen to them in their daily commute, but when it happens it’s important to keep calm and perform these acts : 
  1. Call the Police–Whether the accident you’re involved in is with a commercial truck or not, calling the police is the first thing you should do when involved in an accident, but this is doubly true when a trucking company is involved. These companies often have representatives in the field that will set in to work at accident scenes, steering law enforcement away from evidence and information that would be helpful for you while emergency medical personnel are still trying to help the injured. Evidence can also be destroyed or lost so acting quickly to get police on the scene to quickly gather information is key. If there are violations, the company behind the driver of the truck needs to be held accountable for them and a truck accident lawyer from Northland Injury Law will help you make sure this happens.
  2. Exchange Insurance Information–Don’t forget to collect the driver’s name, the name and insurance info for the trucking company. Make sure to take pictures of the vehicles and the scene when you can. Talk to people in the area when possible to get names and phone numbers of witnesses who saw the accident. All of this will help the truck accident lawyer from Northland Law get your fair compensation
  3. Seek Medical Attention–Any vehicle accident is dangerous, but there are often life altering injuries or death associated with a trucking accident. Northland Injury Law’s truck accident lawyer will help you get the compensation for any injuries and advocate for your rights.
  4. Call A Lawyer–If you want legal help you can trust after a truck accident, choose a truck accident lawyer with years of experience in Kansas City helping truck collision victims.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
