If you or a loved one was injured in a truck crash, our personal injury team at Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, wants to help you hold the at-fault party financially responsible. With our team’s guidance and direction, you could receive compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other collision-related damages.
After a wreck, it can be hard to know where to turn for compensation on your own. When our Tryon truck accident lawyer takes on your case, we explore whether the fault lies with the truck driver, their employer, the manufacturer of the truck, or another party. Our team always starts with a complimentary consultation, and once you hire our firm, we’ll handle the rest.
Compensation You Could Collect After a Truck Collision in Tryon
After a devastating truck collision, you could recover various damages, including economic and non-economic losses. Economic damages are tangible and measurable—they typically have accompanying proof such as bills or receipts that substantiate their value. Recoverable economic damages generally include:
- Current and future medical bills
- Short- and long-term lost wages
- Property damage, loss, or diminished value
- Funeral and burial expenses, if you lost a loved one
Our truck crash attorneys will help you collect evidence to assign an accurate monetary value to your case. We aim to leave no compensable expense overlooked or miscalculated.
Recovering Non-Economic Damages for the Collision
The non-economic damages you can recover after being injured in a wreck are much more difficult to calculate on your own. While they do not have accompanying receipts, we do collect evidence to support their value in the form of your medical records and prognosis for the future. Your recoverable non-economic damages include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Durable scarring or disfigurement
If your family lost a loved one, you could also recover compensation for your loss of consortium, companionship, society, and guidance. We will calculate an accurate financial value for your intangible damages prior to settlement talks.
Why You Should Act Quickly in a Truck Crash Case
The sooner you alert our team about your intention to seek compensation after a wreck, the more time we’ll have to:
- Conduct a thorough investigation
- Locate and interview witnesses
- Canvass the accident scene
- Prepare a strong case
We also ensure compliance with the appropriate statute of limitations. According to G.S. § 1-52, you generally have three years from the collision to file a lawsuit before the personal injury statute of limitations runs out.
According to G.S. § 1-53, you generally have two years to file a lawsuit for wrongful death if your family lost a loved one in a truck crash. When given enough time, our attorney ensures your case is not in jeopardy because of an expired filing deadline.
Proving Liability for a Truck Accident in Tryon
According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) research, truck driver fatigue, driving more than the allowable hours, and truck braking issues are known accident risks and causes. Each of these potential accident causes could point to a different liable party—or more than one. When we investigate your case, we will collect evidence to establish cause and liability, such as:
- The accident report
- Accident scene photos
- Injury photos and videos
- Witness statements
- Dashcam footage
- Mechanical reports and black box data
- The trucking company’s file on the driver
Our team works hard to help you prove the accident’s cause, the responsible party’s identity and liability, and your right to recover monetary damages. We request and obtain evidence for you to build a strong and compelling evidence file.
Possible Liable Parties
Because a truck accident can have one or more liable parties, our team works hard on your behalf to identify the right person or entity to pursue for damages. In some cases, you may have multiple avenues for financial compensation, including:
- The truck driver or their employer if the accident was caused by a truck driver’s negligent behavior or the employer’s actions or mandates
- The truck’s manufacturer if the accident happened because of a flawed or faulty truck or component designs
Assigning liability means proving the identified party owed you a reasonable duty of care but failed to provide it. It also means proving their actions caused your injuries and their financial impact. Our Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, truck accident lawyers representing clients in Tryon will help you assign liability to the correct parties.
