Damages You May Be Able Recover After a Truck Accident
After a collision with a large truck, you may be able to recover the costs of expenses paid out of your pocket and expenses that cause a tangible financial loss. These are called economic damages and are typically provable with receipts, bills, and estimates. You might be eligible to recover the following economic damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Vehicle damage or total loss
- Diminished vehicle value
You may also be eligible to recover non-economic damages. These are intangible damages that are more difficult to quantify. Their value is typically assessed based on the severity of your injuries. These non-economic damages include:
- Physical disability and disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Diminished quality of life
Our truck accident attorney will create a comprehensive list of your damages and assign them an individual and collective value. We use this number as the basis of settlement negotiations and fight hard to recover a favorable settlement.
Do Not Let North Carolina’s Statute of Limitations Expire
The time you have to file your Polk County truck accident is determined by North Carolina’s filing deadline and by the outcome of the accident. If you or someone you love was hurt in the collision, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to G.S. § 1-52.
If a family member was killed, you generally have two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit, according to G.S. § 1-53. If you fail to comply with either statute of limitations, you risk:
- Being unable to file your lawsuit at all
- Having your lawsuit summarily dismissed
- Losing the ability to compel the at-fault party to compensate you
Getting our team involved in your pursuit of compensation sooner rather than later means we can ensure your lawsuit is filed on time. It also means we can conduct a thorough investigation, uncover supportive evidence, and locate accident witnesses.
