Etna Car Accident Lawyers
Few motor vehicle accidents cause as much damage as a large truck striking a smaller car. Because of the negligent actions of a truck driver or another party, you are facing months, if not years, of recuperation, and possibly permanent disability.

In addition to your medical expenses and missed wages, you must deal with the loss of your vehicle, inability to perform basic tasks, as well as the emotional repercussions the accident has on your family. You may feel lost and alone– but help is available.
A skilled Etna personal injury lawyer at Chaffin Luhana will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your truck accident, and help you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. Most of these are settled, but we do not hesitate to head to trial when the situation warrants.
What to do after a truck accident
Many survivors of truck accidents are too badly injured to collect evidence at the scene of the crash. However, if you are up to doing so, immediately take photos and videos of the crash site, including the road conditions.
In addition, if possible, obtain the truck driver’s license number, insurance information, and contact information. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses to the crash.
Always seek immediate medical attention after the accident. Truck crashes often result in horrific injuries, but it is still necessary to go to the emergency room or a doctor’s office even if you do not think you were seriously injured.
Do not wait to seek legal counsel. A Pittsburgh injury attorney will start a prompt investigation of the crash, which is critical for helping your case.
Keep in mind that either the trucking company or its insurers will immediately launch a crash investigation, and that their main goal is to minimize the amount of damages a truck accident victim may receive.
What not to do after a truck accident
Do not make a detailed statement to the insurance company. After the trauma of such an accident, it is easy to inadvertently say something that the insurance company will try to use against you.
Your attorney will handle all negotiations with the insurance company. Keep receipts of all expenses related to the crash, including the cost of transportation to and from doctor’s appointments and physical rehabilitation.
Do not use social media to post photos or otherwise comment on the accident. Again, these comments may be used against you by the insurance company.
