Truck accidents are not like regular car accidents. While some car accidents result in permanent, life-long injuries, this is almost a guarantee with truck accidents. In many cases, victims of truck accidents can never return to their previous line of work again due to their injuries.
Surely, there must be some compensation for such a severe impact on your quality of life. It is therefore crucial that you hire a lawyer to help you with your claim. You only get one chance to put your case before the court. You want to make sure that you are asking for everything you are entitled to right out of the gate.
It can be incredibly difficult to determine on your own how much compensation a court would award you. An experienced lawyer can review your personal injury case and advise you of what you need to add to your claim.
Some of the factors considered when determining compensation include:
- Current and future lost wages
- Current and future medical costs (including prescriptions and rehabilitation)
- Pain and suffering
- Impact on quality of life
If you are unsure of what to claim, Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert & Prieto, LLC can help. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to find every dollar you are entitled to, and we will use every resource at our disposal to help you get it.
It helps to have a lawyer behind you in a situation like this, as insurance companies and their clients are more likely to take you less seriously if you represent yourself. They may also try to get you to settle for a number that is less than you deserve just to be rid of your case. But when Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert & Prieto, LLC has the case, insurance companies know you are not going anywhere until you get results.
Types of Damage Awards
There are two main types of damage awards that you can expect to receive on your claim: specific damages and general damages.
Specific damages cover the specific amount of money used to treat injuries and/or replace or repair damaged property. This is where you would submit your medical bills and repair paperwork from the mechanic.
General damages vary widely, from an inability to have children as a result of the accident to pain and suffering and emotional distress. Of course, what types of general damages a court will award, and the amounts associated with each one, are specific to your individual case.
