If you were involved in an accident with a flatbed truck, you likely suffered severe injuries. You may be facing substantial medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering all related to your accident. Flatbed trucks are huge trucks with a flat, level body, and no sides, which allows for large, bulky goods to be quickly loaded. These flatbed trucks often carry large equipment or products (such as machinery or large pipes). Flatbed trucks typically weigh tens of thousands of pounds, and if they are ever involved in an accident, the devastation can be catastrophic. 

What To Do Immediately After a Flatbed Truck Accident 

Seek Medical Attention

If you were involved in a flatbed truck accident, you should seek immediate medical attention for your injuries. Often, victims do not feel the symptoms of severe injuries following an accident due to either shock or adrenaline. 

However, the lack of symptoms should not stop you from seeking medical evaluation. Specific injuries such as traumatic brain injuries or internal bleeding are often only noticed hours or days following a severe accident. Seeking medical attention immediately will help ensure that you receive the treatment you need for your health, as well as help establish a solid foundation upon which we can help you build a strong personal injury case. 

Obtain Documentation 

If you can obtain the contact information of any other victims or witnesses at the accident scene, you should attempt to do so additionally, if you can take photographs of the scene of the accident, along with any of your injuries as direct evidence that can build a strong case. 

Make sure to keep all documents regarding medical bills, lost wages, medical treatments, and a journal of your pain and suffering so that we can ensure that you receive compensation for your injuries and losses.

Liability and Responsibility for Your Injuries 

If you were involved in a flatbed truck accident, you might be able to hold several different parties responsible. While the flatbed driver may have been negligent, you may also be able to file a claim against the trucking company as their employer. 

It is an employer’s duty and responsibility to ensure that their drivers are experienced and trained correctly, as well as correctly operate their vehicles without recklessness or negligence. At Stevenson Klotz, our experienced truck accident attorneys can help ensure that we help you win your case by filing against any responsible and liable parties. 

Contact an Experienced Trucking Accident Attorney 

If you were involved in a trucking accident, trucking companies are typically very aggressive in their defense in accident lawsuits. You need to have immediate legal representation to issue a spoliation letter to ensure that the truck driver or trucking company does not destroy all relevant and critical evidence related to your case.
