Q: My son was injured in a traffic accident where a semi truck struck his vehicle. He is currently in the hospital. What should I do?
A: This is a complicated question and your actions could be different depending on many different factors. The first and most important thing you need to do is consult with a personal injury lawyer that works on truck accident cases. You need to do this as soon as is reasonably possible as there may only be a short time to preserve evidence for any potential lawsuit. An experienced personal injury attorney can get to work on the case and put your son and his family in the best possible position moving forward. Secondly, you need to document what is happening with your son and all parties involved. Don't rely on your memory alone. As time passes you won't be able to remember exactly what was said and crucial facts your attorney will need to know. Sorry, to hear about your son, hope he gets back to 100% as soon as possible.
