The Atlanta Police have recently indicated that they may stop responding to the scene of car wrecks if nobody claims to be hurt because of Covid-19 concerns. (Story here https://www.ajc.com/news/crime/atlanta-police-wont-respond-to-car-wrecks-if-no-ones-hurt/P2GBOTNW7JCVZFBTVFLZA7S2HM/) This is a terrible policy! Without a police investigation done at the scene of a crash, and a crash…
This is a general guide to what you should do immediately after a collision with a tractor trailer, large truck. big rig or 18 wheeler.
Say as little as possible about the collision. This includes statements to the police or highway patrol. Remember that you must always tell the truth when you do talk, but do not volunteer information. You do not want to say something that can be misconstrued or twisted around to hurt you case. Your innocent comments could be taken as your admission of fault on your part or an admission that you were not hurt and it can take a few days or weeks to discover the nature and extent of your injuries. You are not trying to hide anything but want your legal counsel present when you speak.
