Kennesaw, Georgia Truck Accident
As anyone who drives knows, large trucks are just about everywhere. They carry important cargo from place to place and we depend on them. We also depend on those who operate these trucks, whether owners or drivers or corporate entities, to ensure that the truck they have put on the road and its driver are experienced and safe. There are often problems with one or both of these things. And if one or both of these are violated in some way, the consequences can be dire. In fact, the law supports those injured by the negligent or reckless operation of a truck with the catastrophic personal injuries that can result after an accident.
What happens after a truck accident in which you or a loved one are hurt or injured? Often you will need immediate medical care and it is always best that the care be started as soon as possible. If you are taken to a medical facility or hospital and cared for there so that your injuries can be evaluated, you may be able to go home quickly or you may need to stay for your recovery. An early evaluation is so very important because you might have sustained a brain injury or other injury to internal organs and you might not be aware of what is happening inside your body ... even though this could be very very dangerous. That is why it is so important that you get good care as soon as possible.
You might be sent home after a short stay or a longer stay, and then the calls might begin. The trucking company's insurance carrier might call you and begin to ask questions about how you are feeling. But you might not actually know the extent of your injuries until several days or weeks after a truck crash. Injuries often take some time to become clear. You might still be in shock from the crash. It is very important that you wait to speak with an insurance company until after you have consulted with legal counsel. And legal counsel might caution you not to speak with the trucking company's carrier until more is known about the truck accident.
