What To Do After a Truck Accident

After a Florida Truck Accident, Take the Right Steps

There are certain important things to do after any car accident in Florida - even one apparently resulting only in minor property damage. There are additional steps to take if injuries occur. When a commercial vehicle of any kind - such as an 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer, other semi, construction or delivery truck - is involved, added key considerations may become important.

We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible if you are involved in a serious car or trucking accident. In fact, you may want to write down our toll-free number now - 800-815-6232 - and keep it with your insurance card or enter it into your cell phone.

Other important do's and don'ts include:

  • If necessary or appropriate, seek medical care right away. Even if you feel generally all right, but battered or bruised after a truck collision, it is best to get checked out.
  • Report the accident to your own insurance company, but do not speak to anyone representing the other driver without legal representation.
  • Do not sign any documents at all without legal representation.
  • Do not allow your car to be disposed of and, if possible, take photos of all vehicles involved, the roadway, and any visible injuries you have incurred.
