Recoverable Compensation for Injured Victims of Truck Accidents
Compensation does not only extend to your immediate medical bills. You may stand to recover other losses through an insurance settlement or a court-awarded offer. Take a look at the various types of damages that may apply to your truck accident case.
Coverage for your medical bills includes more than just your emergency room care and surgeries. You can seek compensation for medications, medical equipment, physical therapy, and doctor’s appointments. If you suffer complications due to your injuries, you can also seek awards for the cost of your long-term treatment. This may include in-home aid and life-long rehabilitative services.
Some truck accident injuries keep victims out of work for weeks or months. If you lost any wages while recovering, we could include these in your claim or lawsuit. You can also seek compensation for lost bonuses, benefits, and paid time off.
Reduced Earning Capacity
You can seek awards for how your injuries will affect your income in the future. For example, we can seek the difference if you cannot earn your pre-injury income. Likewise, if you cannot return to work at all, we can pursue compensation for this, as well.
Pain and Suffering
You also deserve awards for the pain and emotional anguish your injuries caused. We can calculate how much you may be eligible to receive.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a family member in a trucking accident, we could seek a settlement that can help your family cope. You deserve to honor their memory in peace, not stress over their funeral bills and other losses.
Through a wrongful death case, we can fight for:
- Funeral costs
- Loss of inheritance, which accounts for your loved one’s income
- Loss of consortium
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
We can handle all communication with the insurers and defense attorneys so you can grieve in peace.

Multiple Parties May Be Liable in Truck Accident Cases
Determining liability in truck accident cases can get complex. Several factors may have contributed to your accident, and holding multiple parties liable comes with its own set of challenges.
Insurers may argue about who is liable for your losses or work to undervalue your claim. We can gather information to help prove a trucker’s negligence. We can then work to hold the appropriate parties responsible.
Consider the following potentially liable parties:
A Truck Driver
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), most truck accidents result from driver error. Therefore, we can work to prove the truck driver who hit you was negligent in some way. For example, we can collect data from the truck’s black box to determine if they were speeding at the time of the accident.
The Truck Driver’s Employer
Typically, a trucking company is responsible for the behavior of its drivers. We can work to hold a truck driver’s employer accountable. We understand which laws come into play with these large corporations.
Trucking companies may also be directly involved in an accident. For example, they may have failed to inspect and perform needed maintenance on their trucks regularly, which resulted in a preventable mechanical malfunction causing an accident. In this case, they would be liable for the victim’s losses.
A Truck or Auto Parts Manufacturer
In some cases, a defective auto part comes into play. For example, faulty brakes may have directly caused or contributed to your rear-end collision. In addition, truck manufacturers have strict regulations to follow when designing trucks since they are large and heavy. Therefore, when they produce unsafe trucks or parts, they may be liable for any accidents their defective products cause.
Additionally, the mechanics who work on trucks can also be liable if they act negligently when performing repairs.
