Frequently Asked Truck Accident Questions

What Are the Most Common Injuries in Truck Accidents?

What Do You Do After a Truck Accident in Grand Junction?

The moments after a truck accident are vital for collecting and preserving evidence for your future claim. If you are able to move around safely and without causing further injury, take the following steps after your accident.

  1. Call 911 for emergency medical services and law enforcement. Speak to the police officer and collect his or her badge number so you can find the report later.
  2. Receive medical attention, even if you do not feel hurt. You may have injuries you are not aware of and your medical records will be important pieces of evidence.
  3. Take pictures of the scene if it is safe to do so. Make sure to photograph both vehicles, license plates, your injuries, and the area around the accident.
  4. Exchange information with the truck driver. Collect contact information as well as insurance, driver’s license, and employer details.
  5. If there are any witnesses at the scene, ask them for their contact information so you can contact them for your future claim.

What Are Common Pieces of Evidence in Truck Accident Claims?

All truck drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely and all employers have a responsibility to keep their vehicles in safe condition and adhere to government regulations. After a truck accident, you and your lawyer will need to work closely together to prove that the driver or his or her employer acted in negligence, leading to your accident.

To do so, you will need to gather evidence that proves the at-fault parties breached their duty of care to you, directly causing your injuries. Common pieces of evidence in truck accident claims include the following:

  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Truck driver logbooks
  • Photographs of the accident site
  • Truck data recorders or cameras
  • Cargo records
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert witness testimony (i.e medical professionals and accident reconstruction specialists)

Why Do You Need an Attorney for Your Truck Accident Case?

It may feel tempting to handle your own truck accident claim without any legal representation — but proving a lawsuit or negotiating with an insurance company after suffering a severe injury can be painful and tiresome.

Trusting an attorney from Jordan Law to handle your claim can provide a number of benefits for your case. We have the resources, skills, and experience necessary to build a compelling case on your behalf.

  • Collecting evidence from trucking companies is vital to building your claim. We know what to look for and can place an evidence request before crucial data disappears.
  • When you file a claim against a truck driver, you will likely have to face his or her employer in court — and corporate entities have strong legal teams. Our attorneys know how to prepare for these arguments and negotiate skillfully for your maximum possible settlement.
  • Understanding trucking law and the federal regulations surrounding truck drivers is vital for your claim. Our attorneys have deep knowledge of trucking regulations to help identify where negligence may be present.
