We extend our heartfelt prayers to all those injured.
There are many steps that should be taken following a collision, but if you were injured the most important step should be to obtain medical help. If a collision involves a commercial vehicle or a truck, it can be difficult negotiating a fair settlement without the threat of litigation.
