The company is called Gordon Trucking, Inc. this incident happened yesterday morning on the freeway. The truck driver tried to change into my lane but didn't pay attention to the busy interstate traffic and clipped my left side. I immediately pulled over, but he kept driving. Other cars pulled over and offered to be witnesses. I'm really scared and never had an accident before this. Do I sue the company with the help of a lawyer? Do I tell my insurance company and have them do their job? What is the plan of action? The truck driver was at fault and my witnesses saw it all.
I am pregnant and also have epilepsy, I have had a severe headache since then and my shoulder has been giving me pain. I stared spotting and I'm very afraid for my baby!
You need to contact a personal injury lawyer in your area who can go into this is more detail. Unless you have a way of identifying which truck sideswiped you, you most likely will have to go through your insurance company if you have the right coverage. In any event, seek the medical help you need!
