Miami Truck Accidents Attorney
Seek financial compensation today with our Coral Gables law firm!
Being involved in a truck accident can have devastating, even deadly, consequences. When a heavy commercial truck collides with anything smaller, such as a passenger vehicle or a motorcycle, the results can be tragic. Because of their size and weight and the longer distance it takes them to stop, a semi, big rig, tanker, tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, or other commercial truck can cause serious injuries for those who may be in their way.

What To Do if You Are Hit by an 18-Wheeler
If you are in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, your first priority should be your safety. You should immediately call 911. If you are able, collect the driver and their employer's contact information including their drivers license number, registration, and insurance. Be sure to give the police a statement and try to collect witness statements from anyone who saw the accident happen, and collect their contact information as well. It's recommended that you don't talk about the accident with the truck driver and avoid discussing the accident with their insurance company.
