I was in an accident and the other vehicle was a semi-truck. What do I do now?
First and foremost, seek medical treatment for your injuries. Also, contact a truck accident attorney . The trucking company will have experienced attorneys and insurance adjusters who want to limit your claim as much as possible. They are not acting in your best interest. Often times, accidents with semi-trucks are caused by fatigue on the part of the truck driver. This is negligence and you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills and lost wages.
