What Type of Compensation Can You Expect?
Well, every state has different laws when it comes to personal injury lawsuits, which is why we strongly recommend you first call our office to get a free consultation and see what our legal team can do for you.
Most states do allow the injured party to get medical expenses, both past and future paid for in this type of accident. Most court systems use a general benchmark system to determine the amount of such medical expenses, and these will also include how the quality of your life has been affected after the truck accident.
Generally seeking you will get compensation under two categories when you use an attorney experienced in truck accident compensation.
- Non-economic (This is the ambiguous sort of compensation caused by pain and suffering and the different types of injuries) - In Washington DC there is no cap on non-economic damages.
- Economic - these involve actual financial losses involved in the accident like lost property, vehicle, wages, medical expenses, etc. Basically this category of damages is for past and future out of pocket damages.
Every trucking company in the US is required to carry enough insurance to cover these costs, should an accident like this occur. If you are a victim of such an accident then you are entitled to a fair settlement.
However, if you don t contract the help of a good attorney who specializes in this type of accident, it is highly likely that the insurance company will try to settle for a relatively low amount. This of course, is in their best interest, but not necessarily in yours.
For instance, the insurance company may only be interested in the obvious economic losses, however they will not want to determine whether there are any future medical expenses, or whether there will be any future medical expenses associated with this injury.
With the services of the right Truck injury attorney, the injured party's health, life expectancy, physical condition, financial loss will all be taken into account and calculated.
