If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, there are certain types of compensation that you can seek.
The first type of compensation is for repayment of medical bills. If you’ve had treatment from a doctor or you’ve had surgery, those types of bills can then be reimbursed from the trucking company and insurance company.
There are also potential damages associated with lost wages if you missed time from work. Those, too, are compensable.
Then, there are the less-tangible types of damages, for example the pain, suffering, inconvenience of the injury. Those types of damages are a little harder to size up. It depends on the severity of the injury that will then determine exactly what kind of damages you can seek.
Last but not least is the issue of permanency. In other words, have you suffered a permanent injury? If the injury is permanent or if you’re likely to have future treatment, then those, too, can be added up. We’ll try to determine what exactly your future damages may look like.
