You’re probably well aware that a serious truck accident can result in severe injuries that may take weeks or even months to recover from. However, it’s not just your initial hospital stay and treatment that you need to worry about being compensated for when seeking an injury claim settlement. There are often long-term future expenses you should factor in when estimating the value of your claim.

Serious injuries that create long-term or permanent impairments can be extremely costly over the course of your lifetime. Some of the common expenses associated with a serious injury, such as loss of limb or spinal cord injury, include: 
  • physical therapy;
  • prosthetic devices;
  • home or vehicle modifications;
  • mental rehabilitation;
  • medication;
  • medical equipment; and
  • in-home health care. 
These health needs can cost a family thousands of dollars annually and over the course of a lifetime that could add up to millions in medical expenses that you now face due to the negligence of a truck driver.

The common serious injuries suffered in truck accidents can be a financial nightmare when you settle for an inadequate amount in your injury claim. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can help you estimate the value of your claim and help you seek a fair settlement for your future needs.
