Compensation for Your Injury-Related Medical Care
If a collision with an oversized truck leaves you or someone you love with severe injuries, you will also have hefty and ongoing medical bills. You could recover the healthcare costs that your injuries have already incurred and will continue to accrue in the future. These can include:
- Ambulance and emergency room fees
- Hospitalizations and in-home care
- Prescription and OTC medications
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Our team builds your case for you by collecting and organizing the myriad documents that prove these costs and presenting them to the at-fault party.
Recoverable Injury-Related Damages
When a truck accident leaves you with serious injuries, it could derail your life in many ways. Your injuries can leave you in the recovery process for a prolonged period. Injury-related damages we might request for you include:
- Lost wages and income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Property damage or loss
- Diminished vehicle value
Recoverable Noneconomic Damages
The value of the noneconomic damages we request for you can be challenging to assess on your own. Unlike economic losses, these losses do not have a tangible value that you can document through invoices, statements, and paystubs. Instead, we use your medical records and prognosis to determine their value. Noneconomic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
Our team will help you sort out which of these damages you are entitled to receive and ensure they are accurately valued.
Recoverable Wrongful Death Damages
According to North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles statistics for 2019, there were 24 fatal truck/trailer accidents statewide. There were also 70 other fatal wrecks involving tractor-trailers, semis, and other large trucks. Our team also helps surviving family members of truck accident fatalities seek compensation for:
- Funeral costs
- Burial expenses
- Loss of future income
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
If a loved one was fatally injured in a truck wreck, our team handles your wrongful death case with compassion and understanding.
