After a Yonkers truck accident, what should you do?
 

In the aftermath of a truck accident, you may not know what you should do. A few of our recommendations are to:

 

  • Check that everyone is okay. If anyone requires medical help, call 911 immediately.

  • Check that the scene of the accident is safe. If it isn't, move to a safe location near the scene. You should not leave the scene until the police arrive.

  • Call the police. The police can help in many different ways. In regards to your personal injury lawsuit, it is important to get a police report filed. That way, people can't later change their stories about what happened.

  • Gather the insurance information from anyone involved in the crash.

  • Gather witness statements. These can be used in your truck accident claim or personal injury lawsuit. 

  • Use your phone's camera (or an actual camera if you have one) and take photos of the scene and damage. This can later be used as evidence.

  • Don't admit guilt or involve yourself in arguments as the scene. 

  • Call your insurance company and let them know about the crash.

Who is liable for a truck accident?
 

In general, the party at fault for a truck accident is liable for any damages that occur as a result of the accident. This includes personal injuries and property damage.  

 

Sometimes, fault is split between multiple parties. For instance, if one driver stops short and someone who was speeding hits them from behind. In that case, both drivers are partially to blame. 

 

There are many factors that can contribute to a truck accident, and therefore the liable party may vary depending on the specifics of the crash. 

 

Fault also can be difficult to assign. If evidence is lacking, then it really is just one driver's word against another's. This is why it's important to get witness statements and take photos.  

 

What are some common causes of truck accidents?
 

Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:

 

  • Driver error

  • Driver fatigue

  • Drunk driving

  • Speeding or reckless driving

  • Defective truck parts or brakes

  • Poor road conditions (ice, snow, rain, fog, etc.)

 

How can a Yonker truck accident attorney help you?
 

If you were in a truck accident in the Yonkers area, it is important to contact a truck accident lawyer as soon as possible. Truck accident lawyers can help you file a personal injury claim and can assist with gathering evidence and representing you in court. 

 

While you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit, we recommend contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident so that they can begin gathering evidence. The more time that has passed since the accident, the more difficult it can be to gather evidence. That evidence is crucial to your claim. 

 

What can I expect in a truck accident lawsuit?
 

If you decide to file a truck accident lawsuit, there are a few things you can expect. First, the process will likely be long and complex. This is due to the fact that truck accidents can have many different causes, and therefore many different defendants. It's important to have an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side who can help guide you through the process. 

 

You can also expect that the defendant or defendants will likely try to pin the blame on you. This is why it is important to have evidence and witness statements to support your case. 

 

A truck accident lawyer will be able to help you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. This

includes damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
