Truck Accidents Lawyer Representing Injured Victims Of Auto Accidents Involving Trucks in New York
If you’ve been involved in a crash with a heavy-duty commercial truck or bus,1 you may have suffered terrible personal injury that caused the need for extensive, costly medical care or the loss of time on the job. When serious truck accidents occur, many people want to know how much money they may be entitled to recover as compensation for their injuries.
How Do I Know How Much I Can Recover?
Every truck accident case is different, so it is nearly impossible to determine exactly how much your case is worth. However, you may be able to estimate your damages by considering the specific types of injuries and losses you suffered.
- Medical Bills – Your first concern after a truck accident is probably recovering for your personal injury. Any automobile accident can cause serious harm, but an accident with a large, heavy truck can cause even more damage. Serious injuries usually lead to enormous medical expenses, and your medical costs may continue to pile up over time if your injuries worsen or you require constant medical treatment.
- Lost Wages – When you’re injured, you’re often not able to work. When you’re not working, you aren’t earning the money you and your family need to survive. No one should lose his or her livelihood because he or she was the victim of a truck accident. You may be able to recover for your loss of income after you were injured and also for any future effects the accident may have on your ability to work. For example, if you will need ongoing doctor appointments or physical therapy sessions that disrupt your work schedule, that may be factored into your recovery.
- Property Damages – You are entitled to compensation for any lost property caused by a truck accident. This includes damages to your car or any belongings that were in it during the accident. Compensation may be available to cover the cost of repairs or for the fair market value of the pre-accident property if it is totaled.
- Punitive Damages – Punitive damages may be available under certain circumstances but are difficult to obtain. Using a knowledgeable New York Personal Injury Lawyer who understands Truck Accidents will ensure that you receive all compensation that may be available.
