Seeking Maximum Compensation After a Truck Accident

The Gatti Law Firm

seeking maximum compensation after a truck accident | patient in a hospital bedCompensation can make a world of difference following a catastrophic truck accident. It can help supplement numerous losses that victims may experience as they deal with the physical and emotional trauma that follows a crash. However, not everyone is aware of what they should include in their settlement.

Maximizing your compensation means taking steps to include all damages you experience. Below, we will detail how economic and non-economic compensation plays a role after a truck accident and what you can do to get the most possible for the injuries you sustain.

Economic Compensation

The damages you sustain following a truck accident can be significant, including catastrophic physical injuries and a totaled vehicle. You can include both of these in your economic compensation, as well as a few other things. Maximizing your economic compensation means recovering for:

  • Expenses associated with medical care, including past bills, specialized medical equipment, ongoing rehabilitation care, and prescription medication.
  • Lost income if your injuries keep you out of work, including lost earning capacity and future wages.
  • The cost to repair or replace your vehicle, but only up to the limits of the insurance company’s policy.

Non-Economic Compensation

Your non-economic compensation considers your losses that don’t have a quantifiable value. You cannot show that you suffered emotional trauma with a receipt. Maximizing your non-economic compensation is dependent on how well your legal team can position your case. A lawyer can show the following emotional trauma:

  • Your loss of enjoyment in life
  • Your post-traumatic stress disorder and triggers
  • Your ongoing need for therapy
