The Law Office of Carl Maltese, a firm based in Smithtown, NY, is pleased to announce that they can provide the services of a skilled and experienced car accident lawyer who can help truck accident victims in Long Island, NY get the compensation they deserve. Thousands of truck accidents occur every year and they tend to be much deadlier than other car accidents because of the larger size and weight of trucks. This means truck accidents have different legal considerations compared to the usual car accidents.
A spokesperson for the Law Office of Carl Maltese says, “Truck accidents tend to result in unexpected damages and injuries that should be taken care of by an insurance company in the best-case scenario. However, this doesn't always happen, as insurance companies tend to worry about saving money instead of the victims' well-being. That's why dealing with a truck accident alone is so challenging, and a truck accident attorney at The Law Office of Carl Maltese can help make this situation a lot easier.”
There are various factors that contribute to the occurrence of truck accidents, such as driver fatigue. Truck drivers usually spend a lot of time on the road, which means they may get tired, fall asleep, or lose their focus on the road. In addition, they may encounter extreme weather conditions that can make driving more dangerous. Another potential factor is that truck drivers are often under pressure to meet certain deadlines, which may cause them to drive at higher speeds.
Truck accident victims may find that dealing with such an accident can be quite complicated. That is why it is vital to know what to do under such circumstances. They recommend that the first thing to do after a truck accident is to call 911 because getting medical attention and ensuring that everyone is safe has the highest priority. Injury victims need to be taken to the hospital and even those who have no apparent injuries will also need to be examined because some injuries don’t manifest themselves immediately.
Another important step to take is to gather all possible evidence, such as photos and videos of everything, including the vehicles and the people involved. The next step is to find a reliable truck accident lawyer. It is also important to report everything to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Truck accident victims also need to make sure that they follow the advice provided by their doctor to ensure that the healing process will be as short as possible. It is also a good idea to document the recovery progress of the victim. And it is important not to post anything about the accident on social media. This is because any statements made on social media about the accident may be used against the accident victim and reduce their chances of winning the case.
