What to Do After Getting Hurt in a Commercial Vehicle Accident in Los Angeles

Commercial vehicle accident claims can be complicated to litigate. The company that owns the commercial vehicle will usually try to avoid paying compensation, undervalue the claim, or delay the process. 

While your personal injury lawyer from Saeedian Law Group will counter these moves, there are things you can do immediately after the accident that will aid your attorney.

Get Medical Attention

It might be a surprise to learn that getting medical attention can support your personal injury claim. The insurance company for the truck company will attempt to claim your injuries are not as severe as claimed or did not result from the accident.

By getting immediate medical attention, you create records that refute those claims. Your personal injury attorney from Saeedian Law Group will need those records to support your claim. The more records we have access to, the more difficult it will be for the insurance company to undervalue your claim.

Contact Saeedian Law Group as Soon as Possible

You might believe that you do not need a lawyer until the other party starts to play hardball. Unfortunately, by the time the insurance company denies your claim or makes a subpar offer, you are already at a disadvantage.

The best time to contact our law firm is as soon as possible after the accident. This gives us more time to investigate your claim, collect records, and start the negotiation process. We have decades of experience with commercial truck accident claims. Take advantage of that institutional knowledge when making critical decisions about your claim.

Avoid Talking About the Accident

One of the more common mistakes that people make after an accident is they talk about it with the other driver. It may seem natural to compare notes about what happened, but that can only help the other driver’s insurance company make a case against you.

For example, you might accidentally say something that could be interpreted as an admission of fault, even if you do not intend to. The insurance company is looking for any excuse to deny your claim or reduce compensation.

It is not only the other driver you should avoid talking to. You should avoid talking to anyone about the accident other than your Saeedian Law Group personal injury lawyer.

You should stay off social media as much as possible and only provide the most basic details, even to people you trust. Even publicly saying something like, “I wasn’t hurt that badly,” to assuage the concerns of friends or family could cost you money in compensation.

If you need to communicate with anyone official, like the insurance company or the police, a personal injury attorney can represent you during those communications. You have the right to provide only basic contact information and let them know you will be available when your attorney is present.

How a Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

Commercial vehicles are typically quite a bit larger than traditional passenger vehicles. After an accident, you are likely to be seriously injured, possibly requiring hospitalization.

Experiencing the pain and disability of a serious injury can make it hard to deal with the bureaucracy involved in a personal injury claim. Your attorney at Saeedian Law Group will handle as much of the claims process as possible while you recover from your accident.

For example, our lawyers can:

  • Investigate the accident scene to determine fault
  • Collect and safeguard evidence and other records that support your claim
  • Communicate with other parties on your behalf
  • File paperwork with the insurance company
  • File a lawsuit with the court, if necessary

You can expect regular communication during your incapacitation while we continue to pursue fair compensation for your serious injuries.
