What to Do After a Truck Accident

After a truck accident, it is important that you take the appropriate steps to protect your health and your rights. If you are physically able to do so, there are several things you should try to do at the scene of the accident and in the days and weeks that follow.

After a truck accident, you should adhere to the following advice:

  • Call 911. If you or someone else is seriously injured, call 911 right away. The police will come to the scene and file an accident report, which can be an important piece of evidence in your case.
  • Seek medical attention. Even if you do not think you were seriously injured, it is important that you see a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and internal organ damage, may not be immediately apparent. Seeing a doctor allows you to receive the necessary medical treatment and that your injuries are properly documented. If you are severely injured, prioritize your health and wellness; do not feel obligated to take any other action following the accident.
  • Take pictures. Should your physical condition allow, capture photos of the accident location, any injuries you've sustained, and any wreckage to your vehicle. If you're not in a position to take these photos, request someone else to do it for you.
  • Get the truck driver’s information. Get the truck driver’s name, contact information, and insurance information. Also, get the name and contact information of the trucking company.
  • Talk to witnesses. If there were any witnesses to the accident, ask for their names and contact information. Their statements may be important evidence in your case.
  • Do not admit fault. Do not apologize or admit fault for the accident. Even if you think you may have been partially to blame, it is important that you do not say anything that could be used against you later.
  • Do not give a recorded statement. The truck driver’s insurance company may contact you and ask you to give a recorded statement. Politely decline and refer them to your attorney.
  • Do not post about the accident on social media. Avoid sharing details of the accident on your social media platforms and be wary of accepting new friend or follower requests. It's possible that insurance companies could be scanning your online presence for any grounds to reject your claim.
  • Hire an attorney. Truck accident cases are highly complex, and you will need an experienced attorney on your side. The earlier you engage a lawyer, the quicker they can start examining your situation and constructing a robust case in your favor.

How Long Do I Have to File a Truck Accident Lawsuit?

In Georgia, you have a limited amount of time to file a truck accident lawsuit. This is referred to as the statute of limitations. If you don't initiate a lawsuit before this timeframe runs out, you will be forever prohibited from filing a lawsuit and obtaining recompense for your losses.

In most cases, the statute of limitations for a truck accident lawsuit in Georgia is two years from the date of the accident. However, there are some exceptions that can either shorten or lengthen the statute of limitations.

For instance, if a government employee driving the truck is responsible for the accident, you must submit a notice of claim within six months from the date of the accident. If you were part of a truck accident and are uncertain about the timeframe to initiate a lawsuit, it's crucial to consult with a seasoned truck accident lawyer at your earliest convenience.
