Many serious truck wrecks occur in and around the Midtown Tunnel, Downtown Tunnel, I-264 and Route 17 since these are some of the busiest roadways in the Hampton Roads region. Unfortunately, when a commercial truck slams into a small sedan or mid-sized SUV, the damage is usually severe, especially for the sedan or SUV.
So what should you do when, let’s say, you get involved in a serious tractor trailer wreck while traveling out of the Midtown Tunnel headed towards the nTelos Wireless Pavilion and you suffer a serious injury. What should you do?
First, go to a hospital and get medical attention so your injury doesn’t get worse.
Next, contact a Portsmouth truck accident injury lawyer. Why? Because once an accident occurs involving a commercial truck, the insurance company that the trucking company sends out a team of claims adjusters to gather evidence and figure out ways to reduce or deny your claim. Remember, when you receive a call from the trucking company insurance adjuster, they are not your friend. Their goal is to either get you to agree to a low-ball settlement or to have you give a recorded statement so they can scrutinize every statement.
