What can I seek compensation for after a truck accident?

Trucks are massive machines that are capable of causing serious damage, and if you have been involved in an accident involving a truck, you know first-hand just how dangerous these vehicles can be.

After a truck accident, many victims not only face serious property damage to their vehicles, but they may also have costly injuries that may keep them out of work. As car repair and medical bills pile up, the financial implications of a truck accident become clear—especially if injuries prevent the accident victim from working for a period of time.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve After an Accident

After an accident caused by a truck driver’s negligence, the insurance company will generally provide you with a settlement meant to cover certain damages. In addition to the cost required to repair or replace your vehicle, you can also seek compensation for the following things:

  • Current and Future Medical Expenses. Whether you broke a bone or suffered even more serious injuries, you can seek compensation for your medical care, physical therapy, prescriptions, and future medical needs related to the accident.
  • Lost Wages. If you have been seriously injured, it is likely you will be unable to work for a period of time. You can seek compensation for the wages that you would have earned in the time you were out of work following the accident.
  • Potential Future Earnings. If your injuries have had a negative impact on your earning potential, whether you are totally or partially disabled over the short or long term, you may be able to obtain compensation for the money you would have earned had you not been injured.
