If you’ve recently been involved in a truck accident, you might be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve incurred from it. Understanding what to do after an accident, can help you file an Atlanta truck accident claim.
Seek Medical Care
One of the first things you should do, if you haven’t already, is seek medical care. Even if you don’t feel any pain, there could be physical injuries that won’t hurt for until a couple days later. If you don't get medical care immediately after a crash, you may not get reimbursed for medical expenses later. Many insurance companies will claim you must not have been injured from the accident if you didn’t seek medical care directly following the incident.
Seek Legal Advice
If the accident was the truck driver’s fault, you could file an accident claim against the truck driver or the truck company. Even if you don’t have any physical injuries, you may still be able to receive a settlement for non-economic damages. Non-economic damages are those having to do with emotional pain and suffering, disfiguration, and the funeral and burial expenses for your loved one who may have died because of the crash.
