What do I need to do if I am hurt in a truck accident in NYC?
If you are hurt in a truck accident in NYC, it’s paramount that you take several steps to document the facts surrounding the accident so you and your legal team can prove negligence and liability at a later date. Of course, sometimes those who’ve been hurt in truck accidents are unable to do anything other than await emergency services, as the size and weight of trucks often far outclass that of other motor vehicles, however, if you are hurt and you are physically capable, you should try your best to do the following:
- Ask witnesses for their contact information
- Call the police to the scene of the accident
- Ensure you receive immediate medical attention
- Take pictures of the accident and any damage it caused, including to you or other property
- Get the truck driver’s insurance information
- Hire an NYC truck accident lawyer who can help you fight for the compensation you need.
