Everyone seems to be talking at once. The police want to know what you think happened at the time of your tractor-trailer crash, the tractor-trailer driver is asking for your insurance information, and the first responders are asking about your preexisting medical conditions and current injuries. It can be difficult to think with so much going on. What is important for you to take care of right away, and what can wait?
Do These 3 Things as Soon as Possible after Your VA Tractor-trailer Crash
As soon as you can, it is important to:
- Call the police. The police will respond to the accident, conduct an investigation, contact an ambulance if necessary, and secure the site so that additional accidents don’t occur.
- Get medical help. It is important to be examined by a doctor even if your injuries don’t appear to be severe.
- Call your loved ones. Tractor-trailer crashes often make the news. Don’t let your family see pictures of the accident and wonder if you are OK. Additionally, you may need the support of your family during this difficult time.
Of course, your injuries may have prevented you from doing one or more of these things. Don’t worry if that has happened to you. Instead, focus on the things you can do now to protect your future.
