If you’ve been injured by a large truck or other commercial vehicle, you may wonder what your case is potentially worth. There are a number of factors that can impact the overall value of a personal injury claim. While the type and amount of compensation available will depend on the specific circumstances surrounding your vehicle accident, some common factors that can influence the value of a truck accident claim include:
- Severity, duration, and type of injuries
- Medical expenses
- Types of medical treatment involved
- Pre-existing injuries or conditions
- Liability of all parties involved in an accident
- The value of relevant insurance policies across all parties
- Age and occupation of victim
- The quality of evidence to support your claim
It is important to work with an attorney who can explain your options, investigate your case to determine liability, collect evidence to support your claim for compensation, and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf or take your case to court. Working with a knowledgeable truck accident lawyer will give you the best chance at recovering the compensation you deserve.
Damages in Truck Accident Cases
Compensation for many types of damages is possible in truck accident cases. You may be able to recover for past and future:
- Medical costs
- Loss of earning capacity
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Physical limitations
Your ability to recover compensation will depend on whether you can prove that your injuries and losses were caused by someone else’s recklessness or negligence. Establishing liability in truck accident cases tends to be complicated because a number of parties may be responsible, including the truck driver, truck company, truck manufacturer, or the company responsible for truck maintenance.
