How much compensation might I be able to recover?
If you are hurt in a truck accident a number of different types of compensation are available depending on the circumstances of the accident and injury. First to be considered will be your medical bills. More your body is rarely idol in motion which means that you could suffer from future aggravations and problems if your injuries are left unattended.
It is very common to wonder about who will be paying for the prescription medications needed after an accident. To answer this, we hire life care planners who will sit down with you and your doctors to determine your future needs in order to ensure that the costs are covered now. You may be able to receive money for the time that you missed from work as well as the time you will miss from work in the future if your injuries prevent you from a speedy return. You can also get monetary damages for your emotional loses; for the pain you have been made to feel as a result of your injuries; for the way that your injuries have affected your relationships with loved ones. You can sometimes get punitive damages if you can show that the company broke laws intentionally or willfully – recklessly - that caused your injuries.
The only way we can help you understand what your rights are and what you are potentially looking at is by speaking with you on the phone or in person. Call and explain your circumstances—what's going on with you and what happened in the accident. We take all of the little pieces of the puzzle that you tell us and apply them to what we know (the law, past circumstances, past similar cases) in order to best advise you on how to proceed. I want to reiterate to you that to call us it costs you nothing; we don't charge by the hour. In fact, it is a free consultation. We can do it by phone or in the office - however you want - but the first step is just to call us.
