What to Do If You Are Injured by a Commercial Vehicle
Protecting your rights after being injured by a personal vehicle is complicated enough. But when the injury is caused by a commercial vehicle, it adds an entire new level of uncertainty that may be difficult to navigate. The GC Law Firm advises you to take these steps to protect your rights against the company whose vehicle caused the accident:
- Seek medical attention. Your health is more important than anything else, so we advise you to seek medical attention as soon as you have been hit by a commercial vehicle. Even if you feel fine, you may have injuries you are unaware of due to the initial adrenaline rush. Before taking any other steps, make sure you have received proper medical assistance.
- File a police report. Once you have received medical assistance, the next thing you’ll need to do is file a police report. When you present your case to your attorney and/or the court, you will need the accident report as evidence of what happened. Therefore, while it may be tempting to skip this step if your injuries aren’t very severe, it could end up costing you your case against the company.
- Take timestamped photos of your injuries. Proper photo evidence of your injuries will be needed to build your case against the company. These photos need to be of clear quality and properly timestamped. Otherwise, the company and their insurance provider could claim that your injuries were caused by another event or as a result of your own negligence.
