Truck Accidents

5 Ways to be Compensated for Damages in a Truck Accident

If you've sustained a bodily injury from a semi truck accident and you don't know what to do, personal injury attorneys might be able to help. Auto insurance sometimes doesn't cover all of the expenses of auto accidents, especially not where accidents with commercial trucks are concerned.

If you are nervous or anxious about your lawsuit, don't worry; most personal injury cases never make it to a trial. In fact, 95% to 96% of them are settled before a trial. So, if you are suffering from a lack of appropriate restitution for the damages you sustained in a semi truck accident, take a look at the following ways you could be compensated.

  1. Lost Wages - If you were incapable of working after the accident, you might be entitled to the money you would've been paid if you were able to work.
  2. Job Loss - Some jobs are rough. If you got fired for missing work due to a lack of transportation or physical ability, you could recover that loss with a lawsuit. Hopefully, your employer is more sympathetic than this, but it's been known to happen.
  3. Damages to Your Vehicle - Of course, this is likely covered by either your insurance or the truck driver's insurance. However, if there is some reason it isn't, you should talk to a lawyer immediately.
  4. Pain and Suffering - It is hard to quantify pain and suffering, but the truth is it happens all of the time. If you went through undue physical pain following an accident that you didn't cause, you might have a viable cause of action to file a lawsuit.
  5. Emotional Distress - This is a type of pain and suffering, but it's more specific. If you lost a loved one in the accident, or if your doctor said the trauma has affected a change in your mental health, a lawsuit might be the right course of action.

Semi truck accidents are often horrific. If you believe that you weren't justly compensated for this tragedy, contact a lawyer as soon as you can. Attorneys can help you put together a potentially life-changing case and bring some light into the darkest of days.

Got referred and all I can say is wow. From start to finish this Law Firm is the best. Case went smoothly and was everything I imagined. I settled less than a week ago. From the sweet lady answering the calls to my case worker. To the end when I met with John. Very professional and I already referred 2 people here. I never leave reviews but this review I had to make and let people know. Parks Law Firm is the Way to Go!!! Maria Hernandez

I highly recommend this law firm for personal injury and car accidents! I have referred them several clients, and in the end they are always very happy with their outcome. In my experience they seem to get better settlements than most firms. David Long

Overall it was an amazing experience. The first attorney I had wasn’t being compliant with me, they had my case for a year and did nothing but as soon as I withdrew and switched over with Parks law firm I was getting instant results and got my settlement within 3 months of them taking my case. The LOP department was amazing and helped me all the way to the women making my demand. God forbid but if I do happen to get into another accident, then parks law firm will be my go to. Leslie Reyna
