I’m often asked, “What are some of the common mistakes that people make when they’ve been injured in a trucking accident in the state of Utah?” One of the most common mistakes are when people do not seek the medical care that they need early on. If you have been injured, it’s important that you get in to see a doctor as quickly as you can so that you can begin to make a full physical recovery. Two, we see people not follow the recommendations of their doctors often. If you have seen a doctor and that doctor has recommended that you do something, it’s important that you follow that doctor’s instructions.
Third, people will not get an attorney involved in a case early enough. An attorney can step in early on and can organize your case and help you avoid some of the pitfalls and mistakes that people often fall into. Finally, it’s important that you hire an attorney who is a trial attorney and understands the trucking regulations and the trucking laws. Trucks have different rules and regulations that they’re required to follow. It is important that the attorney that you hire understands what those rules are and can hold the trucking companies accountable.
