If you are lucky enough to survive a serious truck accident, you may still suffer from painful injuries and emotional harm. This not only affects your well-being, but a truck accident can also lead to financial hardships.

 

The insurance laws in New York and other states regarding automobile accidents are confusing and time constrained.  Investigations have to begin immediately.  Photographs may need to be taken, and witness statements obtained.

​What should you do when you are involved in a truck accident in White Plains?

 

Being involved in a truck accident can be traumatic. Immediately after being involved in an accident, the body's adrenaline system will kick in and it is easy to become confused and disoriented. Follow these steps to ensure that you protect your interests:

 

Make sure everybody is okay: In 2017, in the state of New York, over 55 percent of car accidents resulted in an injury or a fatality. A truly shocking statistic is that over 170,000 people were killed in automobile accidents in the state of New York in 2017.  The first thing that you should do when involved in a car accident is to make sure that everybody is okay. It is likely that if you are involved in an automobile accident in Westchester County that you will be brought to either Westchester Medical Center, Phelps Hospital, New York Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital, or Montefiore Hospital in Mount Vernon.  

 

Call the police: As personal injury attorneys, we can not emphasize enough the need to contact the police when you are involved in a car accident. It is very important to get a police report so that the other people involved in the accident can not change their story and distort the facts of the accidents later after they discover that you were injured in the accident. In Westchester County, the police to arrive on scene will either be local police from the towns, villages, and cities, or the Westchester County police, or State Troopers.

 

Collect information: After the police have been called, collect all the information that is available such as insurance information, license plate numbers, names of all the people involved in the accident, and names and phone numbers of any witnesses. Record statements made by the operators of any other vehicles involved. If you are physically able, take photos of the accident scene and property damage.

 

Contact your insurance company: It is crucial that you contact your insurance company soon after the accident. Your insurance company needs to know that an accident took place, especially when you believe you may be injured. The deadlines to submit required forms are very strict.

 

Call Curan & Ahlers, LLP: Our White Plains truck accident lawyers will be able to help you every step of the way after you have been in an accident in Westchester County. We can help you to fill out the forms required by the insurance companies to receive medical treatment, repair your personal property, and even compensate you for time lost from work.
