After a car accident with a truck, if you were injured you may be entitled to compensation. Your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more could be addressed through a claim. Contact an Atlanta trucking accident attorney for help.

Here are 6 things you should so after a car accident involving a truck, aside from seeking medical attention, which should be your priority: 

  • call the insurance company as soon as possible;
  • take notes of all conversations you have with the insurance adjuster (including date, time, who you talked to and what was discussed);
  • look at your insurance policy to understand what type of coverage you have and consider other types of coverage that may be available under other policies;
  • take pictures of the accident scene, damaged vehicles, injuries, weather conditions and anything else related to the accident;
  • keep a folder of all documentation related to your accident (including medical statements, receipts, and bills); and
  • seek help from an attorney when you have sustained serious injuries


When you have been injured after a car accident involving a truck, you should seek legal counsel to learn what steps to take next. An Atlanta trucking accident attorney can explain your rights and what options may be available.
