What to Do After a Truck Accident
If you’ve been injured in a truck or tractor-trailer accident, the first and most important thing to do is call 911 and seek medical attention for any injuries.
After seeking medical treatment, consider the following. These steps will be important if you’ve been injured and are considering a possible truck accident injury claim or lawsuit:
- Take photos of the crash scene and any injuries
- Talk with potential witnesses and get their contact information
- Do NOT give a recorded statement to any insurance company
- Be honest and accurate in providing information to law enforcement (keep in mind that anything you say can and will be used against you)
- Contact an attorney with experience in truck accident cases

North Carolina law does not require you to hire a truck accident lawyer for your injury claim, but if you want the best result, you may want to consider seeking legal representation.
Research has suggested that those who hire an attorney recover roughly 3.5 times more compensation than those who do not.
Riddle & Brantley’s experienced truck accident lawyers have recovered millions for North Carolinians (see disclaimer), and we’re proud of the results we’ve obtained for our deserving clients, including:
- $5,450,000 | Tractor-Trailer Accident — When a family of four was tragically killed by a tractor-trailer on a busy North Carolina highway, Riddle & Brantley fought for justice. Attorneys Gene Riddle and Kurt Dixon organized a comprehensive accident investigation and immediately filed suit, at which point defense counsel agreed to mediation. Insurance companies for two involved trucks paid the limits of the policies in question, resulting in a total settlement of $5.45 million. Separate litigation against another involved party remains pending.
- $2,000,000 | Tractor-Trailer Accident — When a 68-year-old woman was hit by an 18-wheeler, she suffered injuries that ultimately resulted in her tragic death. Riddle & Brantley fought for justice, hiring expert investigators to determine liability. Attorney Jonathan Smith negotiated a $2 million settlement on behalf of the victim’s surviving family, and attorney Gene Riddle assisted in the matter.
- $225,000 | Truck Accident — Our client suffered serious injuries including a head contusion and multiple fractures when a tractor-trailer failed to yield and caused an accident. After liability was denied by defense counsel, Riddle & Brantley filed suit on behalf of the victim. The claim was ultimately settled in the process of litigation during trial for $225,000.
