What Damages Can I Recover After a Truck Accident?
All trucking accident claims are unique. They involve different causes, parties, legal issues, and related challenges when it comes to recovering compensation. That is why it is impossible to make any broad statements about how much an 18-wheeler crash victim can recover. To determine the compensation you may be eligible to receive, it is important to seek the help of a skilled Houston truck accident attorney.
Recovering Financial Compensation After a Truck Accident
Truck accidents can often be challenging to resolve because of the many factors. You may or may not have been partially at fault, the truck driver may have been negligent, the weather conditions may have been dangerous, or countless other factors may have contributed to the accident.
The compensation that your lawyer will typically fight to recover on your behalf may include:
- Vehicle damages
- Medical expenses
- Funeral costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost past and future income
- Lost comfort, care, and companionship
If your vehicle was damaged in a truck accident, it is likely that you would be compensated for the costs to repair. Likewise, if you are hurt as a result of a truck accident, your attorney can pursue compensation for medical bills and related expenses, depending on the cause of your injuries. When people are killed in trucking accidents, lawyers typically seek to restore lost income, funeral expenses, and lost comfort costs to their loved ones. Whether or not a legal advocate can recover this type of compensation will depend on the specific details of the case.
