Accidents involving large commercial trucks can cause extensive damage and devastating injuries. Victims of truck accidents often suffer more than just physical damage, but also significant financial damage. Not only can medical bills and lost wages put a serious strain on a person’s finances, but some permanent disabilities may cause permanent hardship due to an inability to work or live independently. If a truck driver or trucking company acted in a negligent manner to cause an accident, that party should be held liable for all of the losses that victims suffered. An experienced Coweta County truck accident attorney will work to make sure truck accident victims receive the compensation they deserve.
Victims may file a personal injury lawsuit to try to recover for the following kinds of losses:
- Medical expenses, which may include bills for emergency care, hospital stays, surgery or other procedures, prescriptions, doctor and specialist visits, physical therapy and rehabilitation, home health care, nursing home or assisted living costs
- Lost income due to missed work during recovery
- Estimated future lost income if you are permanently disabled and may never return to work
- Estimated value of the pain and suffering you experienced as a result of your injuries
- Damage to your vehicle or other property
An experienced attorney can use your medical bills, paystubs, and other records to prove the amount of your tangible losses. Furthermore, a truck accident lawyer can help estimate your intangible damages, such as pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment.
