What To Do After a Truck Accident

Dedicated Buffalo injury attorney Timothy Hiller, Esq. explains what to do after being involved in a truck accident.

Some clients ask me, what should I do if I was injured in a truck accident? Now, chances are, if you were in a truck accident, your injuries are very catastrophic. You know, trucks are very large, and the accidents can sometimes be very serious. We have experience here with those catastrophic injury cases. We know how to get the information that we need to prove your case, including the information that’s kept in the truck in terms of what’s called a black box in every truck; it’s going to give details about the accident itself.

We know how to get footage from inside the truck if it exists, and other things that we’ve learned from experience with these trucking cases. You need a litigator who’s tried these cases before, who’s pursued claims on behalf of accidents in trucking cases because they are a little bit different than your typical motor vehicle accident. Then the other thing is, if you are injured very seriously, you need someone who’s willing to take your case to trial. That doesn’t mean that we will take your case to trial. But if you’re very seriously injured, you only get one shot to settle your case.

If your injuries are permanent, you’re going to be living with those injuries for the rest of your life. You only get one shot to settle the case, so you want to maximize that settlement. What sounds good now, five or six years down the road, when you’re still dealing with those permanent injuries, may not sound so good. You want an attorney who understands that and who understands how to leverage the litigation process to get you the maximum recovery so that you’re taken care of for the rest of your life.

If you or a loved one was injured in New York due to the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation.
