Truck Accident Compensation

Truck Accident Compensation

The chances of being involved in a truck accident are ever-increasing for America’s drivers. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), truck accidents with injuries increased by 12% between 2020 and 2021. 

Accidents with 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles often result in devastating consequences for those in passenger cars. Victims could see their lives forever changed in one split second. However, if your life is turned upside down and another party is responsible, you could be entitled to truck accident compensation. What you can recover will depend on various factors, such as the severity of your injuries, available insurance coverage, and other facts of the accident. 

Truck accidents can be complex, and victims often face an uphill battle to get adequately compensated. Don’t struggle alone. Our experienced 18-wheeler crash lawyers at The Ammons Law Firm are some of the best in the nation and can help you recover the compensation you deserve. 

Contact us online or call us at (281) 801-5617 to speak with our trained truck accident lawyers and learn the damages you can recover after a truck accident. 

Do You Qualify for Truck Accident Compensation?

Truck accidents can be the result of various factors, such as:

Crashes with large commercial vehicles can have life-altering consequences, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, fractures, and emotional trauma. 

Identifying all liable parties in a truck accident and knowing how to hold them accountable is crucial in seeking fair compensation. Moreover, getting what you deserve can be tricky, as you may have to fight against a global truck manufacturer or powerful trucking company and its teams of lawyers. 

The Ammons Law Firm has your back. Our motivated and skilled truck accident attorneys seek maximum compensation for injured victims.

Damages You Could Recover in a Truck Accident Claim 

Truck accident compensation varies from one claim to another. The average value of a truck accident claim will depend on many factors. Generally, individuals with minor or moderate injuries receive less compensation than truck accident victims with disabling and life-changing injuries. Injured victims may be entitled to various economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages refer to financial losses directly associated with the truck accident and its aftermath. They are typically tangible and quantifiable and can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Out-of-pocket costs

Non-Economic Damages 

Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages encompass subjective and intangible losses that are not easily quantifiable in monetary terms. Such damages generally depend on the severity of an individual’s injuries. However, since pain and suffering are individual, non-economic damages can vary between individuals with similar injuries. 

Common non-economic damages in truck accident claims can include:

  • Physical pain
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of life enjoyment
  • Loss of consortium
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring

Economic damages can be relatively easy to calculate, provided you retain all records detailing your financial losses, such as bank statements, pay stubs, receipts for car repair, medical statements, and others. However, determining adequate compensation for non-economic damages can be significantly more challenging. 

Our skilled truck accident attorneys can assess the injury’s impact on your life and finances and help you determine your economic and non-economic damages. 

How The Ammons Law Firm Can Help

If you want to obtain full and fair compensation, consider hiring a qualified attorney who can identify all responsible parties, build your case, and work tirelessly for what you deserve. Here’s how The Ammons Law Firm can help:

Proving Liability

Proving liability in a truck accident case requires a meticulous and systematic examination of the evidence. We work with industry experts to analyze the accident scene, the truck, and other involved vehicles to determine who or what caused the crash. Our attorneys can gather and review critical evidence, including:

  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Truck black boxes
  • Log books
  • Service and maintenance records
  • Hiring and corporate records

By establishing negligence or fault on the part of the truck driver, trucking company, or other involved parties, we can build a compelling case supporting your compensation claim.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies want to protect their bottom line rather than ensure you receive fair compensation. Therefore, insurers representing the liable parties may attempt to settle quickly and for a minimal amount. At The Ammons Law Firm, we have extensive experience communicating and negotiating with insurance companies. We can protect your rights, ensure that you are treated fairly, and fight for maximum compensation. 

Calculating Compensation

Determining the worth of your truck accident claim can be challenging. However, our experienced attorneys work closely with medical professionals and other experts to identify the accident’s impact on your health, home life, life quality, and career. This helps us establish a fair amount for your past, present, and future truck accident damages. 

Fighting for Justice

At The Ammons Law Firm, we believe that every truck accident victim deserves justice. We never charge clients attorney’s fees upfront and only get paid when you get paid. When we take your case, we strongly represent your interests, both inside and outside of the courtroom. 

Our skilled attorneys have extensive trial experience and don’t take an insurance company’s last best offer if your truck accident claim is worth more. We can take your claim to court if necessary and argue your case powerfully and persuasively before a judge and jury.
