What Type of Compensation Is Available?
After the accident, you have the right to seek compensation when other parties have caused your pain and suffering. The types of compensation available vary depending on what occurred during the accident.
Our lawyers will carefully calculate how much money you are owed for both your economic and non-economic damages. Our legal team will base the value of your case on documentation such as the police report, your medical records, and eyewitness statements.
Generally, compensation after a truck accident includes:
The medical costs associated with your accident can span many years of treatment. That may also include mental health counseling, additional surgeries, medications, physical therapy, medical equipment, and even transportation related to your treatment.
You lost income after the accident, and you may petition for damages to cover those losses. Even if you have paid time off or sick leave available, you might exhaust those benefits quickly. You deserve to recover cash that will pay for additional time off in your recovery.
Lost Income Potential
Lost income potential might also be called lost lifetime income. If you cannot continue working as you once did, your lifetime earnings will change. Working with our legal team, you can calculate how much money you should have made in the future. These earnings should include bonuses, commissions, gifts, perks, etc.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering helps you recover damages for the physical pain you are experiencing after the accident. When this pain greatly diminishes your quality of life, it can prevent you from enjoying activities you did before the accident.
Emotional distress relates to the psychological symptoms you might experience after the accident. That includes depression, anxiety, and/or insomnia.
