A garbage truck accident will usually result in two things:
After being in a garbage truck accident, you should handle the situation like you would any other motor vehicle accident, except with a few added extra steps or details. You need to get identifying and insurance information from the truck driver. But you should also note the truck company’s name and any identification or serial number on the truck. This extra information can help you figure out who caused your accident if you cannot, for whatever reason, identify the truck and driver otherwise.
If someone has been injured, then you should notify the authorities. Call 911 if there are serious injuries. If you are feeling relatively fine after your crash, then you should still go to urgent care for a check-up. Finally, reach out to a garbage truck accident attorney in Memphis to help fight for your fair recovery after your accident.
Tennessee has a fairly brief statute of limitations for personal injury claims. If your garbage truck accident happened in Memphis, then you will only have one year to bring a claim against the driver and their employer. Once Tennessee’s one-year statute of limitations expires, you cannot seek a recovery from the driver who hit you, even if you have strong evidence that shows they caused the crash.
