What Do I Do Now?
Being involved in an accident can leave tragic consequences for those who were involved and their families. Whether the victim was you or a loved one, the first thing you should do is make sure that everyone who was injured gets the medical attention they need.
After getting everyone taken care of, it is important to think about your legal options. The medical bills may be growing. You may have funeral expenses to pay for. Maybe a lost spouse or parent was responsible for providing for the family, and was lost in the crash. Know that you have options, and Reiff and Bily’s The Truck Accident Team is here to help.
You Do Not Need to Be a Victim
Reiff Law Firm’s The Truck Accident Team has almost four decades of experience leading people through some of the most difficult times in their lives and achieving maximum justice. We have worked with clients around the country to get them compensation and get them back to living their lives.
Surviving a crash with a truck is not something that happens to everyone. For so many, the dangers of truck accidents are fatal. If you have experienced a loss, we send our deepest condolences. Even if you survived, you might be facing serious injuries, and The Truck Accident Team wants you to know that you are not alone.
Insurance Companies Are Not Looking Out for You
After a crash with a truck, you may be contacted by the legal team that represents the truck driver or the trucking company. Keep in mind that these lawyers and representatives are often part of large legal teams that work to keep the blame off of trucking companies and their employees. While they may seem genuine, their goals do not include caring for you.
Their entire job is to minimize the financial impact that a crash has on the trucking company. They are not there to represent you or take care of your interests.
That is why you need someone on your side who will fight for you with just as much passion as the other guys fight for truckers and trucking companies. The Truck Accident Team does just that.

Important First Steps After a Truck Accident
Not everyone knows what to do after a tragic accident. That is why we are here. Reiff Law Firm’s The Truck Accident Team has extensive experience working with truck accident victims. After a tragic accident, we work to get our clients the compensation they need for their injuries, and to get their lives back on track. There are three important first steps to take before we can help take you the rest of the way:
Deal with Your Injuries
In most cases, truck accident victims will be taken to the hospital by ambulance. Some injuries are even treatable at the scene of the crash, but many require hospitalization and even surgery. Take special care of injuries to the neck, head, and back. These are not always obvious, and may take a couple days to discover. Do not delay in treating them, because they could leave serious, permanent effects. Read more.
Keep a thorough record of everything that happened during and after the accident. Take pictures, write down as much as you can remember, save all the official records, and keep a diary of how the accident has affected you. All of these details can help you tell your story and obtain the right compensation for your losses. Make sure the other side does not have such a record – do not talk to the lawyers or representatives from the trucking company. Also keep any information about the accident off social media.

Choose the Right Lawyer
A major trucking company will have teams of aggressive lawyers to protect them against accident litigation. They will do everything they can to shut down claims against them and their drivers as quickly as possible, and at the lowest cost. Often, any offers to settle out of court will fall below what you deserve. Make sure you have an experienced attorney on your side before accepting any offers. Read More
