Steps To Take After A Truck Accident in Hacienda Heights

Take these important actions immediately to maximize the value of your insurance claim or case if you were involved in a truck accident in Hacienda Heights.

Take Pictures of the Accident Scene

Take pictures of both the vehicles involved and the accident scene. Make sure to obtain the information of the involved vehicles and witnesses including their names, address, and contact number. This info is vital to creating a strong claim or lawsuit case. Never leave the scene until you have all their information.

Call the Police and Make a Report

You need to make sure that you call the police to make a legal accident report. The vehicles must remain on the crash scene unless they are already causing traffic. Tell your story and ensure that you have the facts correct. Let the officer know if you are not entirely sure on some information you are giving out. Also, you may need the police report to file your insurance claim for the damage to your vehicle.

Get the Other Person’s Insurance and Driver’s License Details

Most people often forget to get the facts of their accident. The license plate number and description of the truck can be helpful. Make sure that you also get the info on their insurance company and the vehicle identification number.

Contact Your Insurance Company

Contact your insurance company immediately after the accident. Your agent can walk you through the details on how you can file your insurance claim.

Preserve All Records

Keep all your accident-related information and documents. Consult an auto accident attorney regarding your issues and take their legal advice before giving out your statement. Your attorney will be in charge to protect your rights and best interests to make this experience stress-free.

Most Important, Make Sure No One’s Seriously Hurt

Double check yourself and your passengers to see if no one is hurt. It is important to be checked by a medical doctor if you have injuries as soon as possible. The doctor will provide your insurance company the necessary documentation of your injuries for the claim.
