I was escorting an over dimensional load movement in Illinois

Customer Question

I was escorting an over dimensional load movement in Illinois on Sat 7/25. The load struck an interstate highway bridge. I was the lead escort using a height pole. The trucking company did not report the incident to the police or the DOT. The driver became accusatory about my work, and I fear they will represent that the accident was my fault. Shoud I 1) report the accident to the authorities? 2) get a lawyer involved before any claim is made? I am a retired person with very few assets.

Good morning. You should ask employer for status report and ask if intend on reporting it. If not, you should do so. You should have a lawyer involved before reporting it to ensure you are personally protected. martindale.com is a good resource. Kindly rate the answer positively.
