What To Do After Being Injured in a Maryland Truck Accident
Though these accidents are often very severe, as long as you are still physically capable, there are several things you should do to help ensure you recover the compensation you need after being injured in a truck accident. First, ensure you call the police, who will also send an ambulance to treat your injuries. From here, take pictures of the scene of the accident, including damage to your car, damage to the truck, and any damage to property caused by the accident. Next, ask anyone who saw your accident for their contact information, such as phone numbers or emails so they may later corroborate your claim. After you are taken to a hospital and treated, ask your doctor for all medical documentation regarding the origin and extent of your injuries. Finally, ensure you speak with an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process. In many cases, trucks have a device that logs their speed at all times. Our firm can work to subpoena this data to prove, for instance, that the trucker caused your accident by violating the speed limit.
That being said, you should note that all those looking to sue have a certain amount of time to take legal action against the party that caused their accident, known as the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is three years, you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party who caused your injuries. Do not wait too long, for if you do, you will most likely be barred from suing. We are ready to help you.
