Because 18-wheeler trucks and other commercial vehicles are usually much larger than passenger vehicles, the injuries sustained in accidents are often more serious. In addition to scrapes and bruises, victims may suffer from broken bones, spinal and brain injuries or even death.
After an accident caused by a truck, if you are able, you need to collect the truck driver’s contact information, insurance information, company contact information and license plate number. Call the police for an official report to be made, and ask for contact information from any witnesses. Then seek professional medical care and call Attorney Robert L. Woods.
