T-bone accidents involving semi-trucks can produce painful and serious injuries like the ones you have suffered. Unfortunately, you need to keep in mind that trucking companies and their insurance carriers do not want to compensate accident victims how they should be compensated.
Insurance companies generally want to save as much money as they can, which is how they make a profit. This means that the first settlement they have or will offer you will not be a fair offer. In order to determine what just compensation would be for your accident-related injuries, you need to add up the following costs:
- Emergency room visits and doctor’s visits
- Hospital stays
- MRI tests
- Physical therapy
- Lost income
- Out-of-pocket costs
In addition to these costs, you may be entitled to future medical costs, future lost income, mental anguish, pain and suffering, and other damages. The possible financial recovery that you can collect will be based on how serious your injuries are, the prognosis of your health, and when or if you can return to the same job and make the same income you made prior to the crash. To find out exactly how much your case is worth, you should consult with a skilled Georgia personal injury lawyer.
