What Are 18-Wheeler Accidents?

When you are on the road, you likely never anticipate that you will be involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler vehicle. One would think that the individuals operating an 18-wheeler truck would have an extensive knowledge about the operation of this type of vehicle. The unfortunate truth is that many of the drivers of 18-wheeler vehicles never receiving the training that they need to adequately handle blind spots and make wide turns.

What Should I Do if I Am Involved in an 18-Wheeler Accident?

If you are involved in an accident that involves a large truck or 18-wheeler vehicle, the most important thing that you can do is to immediately call the police. In Texas, it is a requirement that individuals file a crash report. You will want to stay at the scene and be there when the police arrive. The police will investigate the accident, write down their perceptions and also take notes on the things that you say during this time. If you believe that the other driver was at fault in the accident, then you should be sure to say this to the police. You should make sure that you document any damage that has been done to your vehicle as well as your own injuries.

After you speak with the police at the scene of the accident, then your next step will be to go to a doctor for medical treatment. Even if you do not believe that you are severely injured, you should still seek medical attention as soon as possible. After an 18-wheeler accident, you may suffer from a severe concussion. A doctor can tell whether you have suffered from any side effects that may not be readily apparent, and he or she can also provide you with the treatment that you need during this difficult time.
