Heavy trucks are a common sight on the highways and byways of Seattle and all over the country. These trucks carry freight across the state and across the nation, and without them, we would not have access to many of the products we depend on. However, although truckers are a crucial part of the American economy and many of them drive their hauls to their destinations safely, when these gigantic vehicles do become involved in road crashes, the outcome can be extremely destructive. The large size and heavy weight of these vehicles make them culprits for multiple-vehicle collisions that could result in multiple serious injuries or even fatalities. If you or someone you love was hurt in a truck accident, contact an attorney at Russell & Hill, PLLC to find out more about your legal rights as an accident victim.

Truck accident statistics

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration publishes reports on heavy truck injury and fatality crashes each year. According to their data, an estimated 119,000 people sustained injuries in heavy truck collisions in 2016, and more than 4,200 large trucks were involved in fatal accidents that same year.

What to do after the accident

Sustaining an injury in a truck crash is not only painful, but also frightening, and this combination of serious pain and fear can make it difficult to determine what to do after an accident. Here is what you need to do after being hurt in a collision with a heavy truck:

  • Get medical attention. Even if you think your injuries are minor, you need to get a medical evaluation by a trained professional. Some injuries go unnoticed at first and only become painful after some time has passed (as is common with soft-tissue injuries like whiplash).
  • Keep records related to your accident. Compile a file of documents pertaining to your accident and injuries, and include photos of the injuries themselves, contact information for witnesses to the crash, and copies of medical bills from injury treatment and pay stubs showing the amount of lost wages due to missing work while recovering from injuries.
  • Present your documentation to a truck accident injury attorney. Your attorney can review your file and discuss what your legal options may be as an accident victim.
