What to do if you are involved in a Michigan Truck Accident

Truck accidents are very serious and traumatic. Because of a truck’s heavier weight and greater size, the damages and injuries can be catastrophic. Keeping calm and thinking clearly is imperative at the scene. If you are ever involved in a Michigan truck accident, try to keep the following in mind:

  • Contact emergency services if there have been any injuries.
  • Turn on your hazard lights and safely remove yourself and your vehicle (if possible) from the roadway.
  • Gather information from the other driver(s), other passengers, and any witnesses. Write down their names, phone numbers, and addresses.
  • Write down the amount of damage to the vehicles and the location of the damage.
  • Write down a description of the scene. Including the weather, the streets, the time of day, and so on.
  • Report the accident to the police right away, and get a copy of the police report as soon as possible.

Some reports can be gathered from:

  • Department of State Police Criminal Justice Information Center 7150 Harris Dr. Lansing, MI 48913 (517) 322-5531
  • Others can be gathered directly from the police department that arrived at the scene.
  • Report the accident to your insurance company.
