What should you do after a truck accident?
If you were in a truck accident, it can be difficult to know exactly what to do in the aftermath. Some things we recommend you do include:
Make sure everyone is okay. If not, call for medical help.
Make sure the scene is safe. If not, move to safety.
Call the police. They are there to help. Getting a police report filed is also an important piece of the legal process, as it can be a key piece of evidence and also prevents other people involved in the crash from later changing their stories.
Collect insurance information from other parties involved in the crash.
Don't admit guilt for the crash. The side of the road is not the place for an argument, so don't argue either. Try to keep calm and act reasonably, even if pressed.
Collect witness statements.
Use your phone to take photos of the scene and any damage.
Contact your insurance company and alert them about the crash.

Who is liable for a truck accident?
Much like other motor vehicle accidents, liability in a truck accident is attributed to the person who causes the crash. Liability can also be split between multiple people, portioned to the amount each contributed to the crash.
For instance, maybe the truck driver had been driving for more hours than allowed and was tired and slow to react, but the other driver had been driving inattentively and had slammed on the breaks in front of the semi-truck driver, who then ran into the car in front of them. In that case, both parties are likely to be given some of the liability.
Often, liability will fall on either the truck driver or another driver involved in the crash, but there are cases where a third party can be held accountable. The truck company may also be liable if the truck driver's negligent behavior occurred during work, which is often the case. In those situations, it's typically better to pursue legal action against the truck company as they are more likely to have the means to pay out.
What are some common causes of truck accidents?
Semi-truck accidents, or eighteen wheeler accidents, are often caused due to:
Poor or lack of truck maintenance
How can a truck accident attorney in Westchester County help you?
If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in a truck accident due to the actions of others, you have two years to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. This lawsuit can help you recover damages for things like medical expenses, lost wages, disabilities, pain and suffering, or wrongful death.
