Stephen Rue Attorney Awards

What To Do After A Truck Accident

You should act quickly to get a qualified attorney on your side to help with important matters, such as investigating and preserving evidence of how the accident occurred, to answer your questions, and give you advice about what to do and how to proceed.

At Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm , we are known for being strong advocates for victims and know how to deal with big trucking companies and their huge, often uncaring, insurance companies. We know how to take immediate steps to protect our clients’ legal rights, in order to do what we can to try and get the best compensation the law will permit for our clients.

We caution anyone out there who wants to wait, or hesitates, before seeking the benefit of able legal counsel, because, while he or she sits and waits, the trucking company and its insurance company have likely got a whole team of lawyers and investigators working around the clock to build up defenses and excuses aimed at defeating any and every claim made against them. Time is NOT on your side if you simply wait, but is working against you. Attorney Stephen Rue has been dealing with these types of cases for well over 26 years, and that much has been clearly demonstrated.

So, at a minimum, consult with an attorney, such as Lawyer Stephen Rue, who will personally answer your questions about serious 18-wheeler accidents. And he highly recommends doing so right after the accident has occurred. Also, he recommends that you do not talk to any insurance company representatives about the accident or your injuries, but let your attorney do so, including reporting the accident if and when necessary. After speaking with Mr. Rue, and if he has answered all of your questions to your complete satisfaction, then you should permit him the privilege of being your attorney. And soon you may join the ranks of the thousands of other clients who have done so and received excellent results, in which they were pleased to get.

Take Action After A Truck Accident

After a truck accident, you should do the following:

  1. Get medical care and follow the instructions of your doctor.
  2. Obtain the names and phone numbers of any witnesses.
  3. Call Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm at 504-529-5000.
  4. Don’t wash the clothes you were wearing at the time of the accident, because this is important evidence. Instead, put your clothes in a clean plastic bag.

  6. Collect your auto insurance and health insurance policies and pay stubs if you have missed work due to injuries from the accident.
