Tractor-Trailer Accidents: What to Do If You’ve Been Involved in a Serious Accident

Serious accidents are always shocking experiences, especially when involving tractor-trailers. Accident victims are often left to deal with hospitalization, missed work, and even the loss of a family member. Given the high rate of tractor-trailer accidents on the roads in Minnesota and Wisconsin, it is important for you to know what to do if you are ever involved in a serious tractor-trailer accident.

Seek Professional Medical Treatment

Immediately after an accident, you may experience shock or dismay at the wreckage. With so much chaos going on, it is difficult to determine your injuries without seeing a doctor. Seeking professional medical treatment ensures better physical recovery and quicker claims processing. You may also sustain severe emotional trauma after a devastating accident. Consulting a therapist or other mental health professional allows residents to cope with the lingering mental anguish.

Know Who May Be Sued For Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Tractor-trailers must abide by both state and federal regulations. However, adherence to laws does not always occur. Failure to comply with the law not only results in grave personal injuries but also liability for several responsible parties. The potentially responsible parties may include the truck driver; the trucking company; the truck owner; the vehicle or tire manufacturer; the cargo loader; the cargo shipper; and the company responsible for the tractor-trailer’s maintenance. The O’Dea Law Firm will help you find the parties responsible and make certain negligent conduct does not go without punishment.
