Steps and Recommendations to Follow After a Truck Accident in Colorado

If you’ve been in a truck accident in Colorado, the aftermath can be overwhelming and confusing. Truck accidents are significantly more complex than typical car accidents due to the size of the vehicles involved, the severity of the damage that can occur, and the involvement of a trucking company.

At Mintz Law Firm, we understand the chaos and stress such incidents can cause, and we are here to guide you through every step. Our recommendations are tailored to help you manage the situation effectively, ensuring you are well-prepared to handle the challenges that may arise. From securing medical care to consulting legal professionals, we’ll offer practical suggestions and guidance to tackle your challenges.

What Should I Do After a Truck Accident?

Following a truck accident, especially if you are considering legal action to obtain compensation, you may be worried about managing your case correctly. Legal matters can be scary and require a lot of careful planning, especially if you feel unfamiliar with the process ahead.

Seek Medical Attention As Soon As Possible

As soon as possible after any incident resulting in injuries, we recommend you seek medical attention quickly. Even if you don’t notice medical problems, visiting a doctor will help identify hidden injuries. A doctor can assess your situation, diagnose issues, recommend treatment, refer you to specialists, and more. 

Furthermore, seeking medical attention quickly will look good during legal matters. Court personnel will understand that you are taking your healing and well-being seriously. 

Additionally, be sure to request and keep any bills, written plans, records, and doctor’s notes.

If you need help finding a doctor willing to work with you during your legal matters, Mintz Law Firm can help you explore your options.

Stay Offline

Your posts, comments, search history, and other internet use can all be accessed by the court and used against you. This is the case even if you have privacy settings enabled. To avoid temptation, you should deactivate your accounts.

File Necessary Reports

If you have not already done so, file reports with the police and the DMV. These document sets will be necessary and beneficial evidence during your claim.

Avoid Discussing Your Case With Others

We encourage you to refrain from discussing your claim with others, including friends and family. Anything you share with others can be used against you, even in unexpected ways.

We can only recommend you speak with an attorney, as you have additional privacy protections under the client-attorney relationship. 

Be Careful When Communicating With Insurance

When communicating with insurance companies and other parties, give as little information as possible. While you may be required to answer some questions about your claim, do not go into more detail than is necessary. 

Insurance companies, even the one running your policy, do not have your best interest in mind and will do everything they can to reduce the value of your claim and underpay you in your settlement. 

Retain an Attorney

As soon as you can, we encourage you to work with an attorney for support with your truck accident claim. Not only will a lawyer from Mintz Law Firm be able to move through your case confidently and efficiently, but we can also recommend further steps based on your specific needs and circumstances.
