Factoring in Serious Injuries for Your Injury Claim Value
Crashes with commercial trucks, accidents with semis, and incidents involving a tractor-trailer can result in serious financial and emotional burdens to your family. In cases where the truck driver’s negligence caused the accident, you have the right to seek compensation through an injury claim, as well as a right to an Atlanta personal injury attorney to help you with the claim process.
Some of your damages are easy to account for, such as current medical expenses for your initial treatment and stabilization. However, with serious injuries like TBI or internal bleeding, you may need extended, long-term or permanent medical care. Estimating these costs can be difficult if you’re not aware of the price of therapy, additional surgeries and in-home medical care.
An Atlanta personal injury attorney will be able to consult past case results and similar accidents to gather a general estimate of how much you may expect to need to support yourself in the future. If you are unable to work after suffering a TBI, you also may be able to recover compensation for the wages you would have earned had the accident not happened.
Talk to an Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney with Experience with Trucks
Accidents involving commercial trucks are different than standard car accident claims. Instead of filing the claim against the driver, you may have to file the claim against the trucking company. You’ll also need to gather different evidence such as driving activity logs, “black box” data and maintenance records, which can all be destroyed by the company if you don’t act quickly.
The challenges you face in filing a successful claim against a truck driver or a trucking company may be reduced by working with an Atlanta personal injury attorney. It’s your right to have an attorney on your side who knows how to deal with the specific complications of a claim involving trucks in accidents.
