The first question most people ask when they are in a car accident or truck crash is “How much money can I recover from the damages in my car accident [or truck accident]?” And that’s a fair question. After all, there are – worst case scenario – medical and other related costs; at best, car repair or truck repair. It’s okay to want to know how much money you can recover.
The first factor to determine damages is the negligence of the defendant. If it’s common negligence, like they ran a stop sign or a stop light or rear-ended your vehicle, you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.
Physical pain and mental anguish are considered “damages.” Are you physically impairment from the activities you were able to do before? Physically disfigured? You are entitled to recover your lost wages, and your capacity to earn in the future, and of course your medical expenses, which can mount every day as you’re seeking to recover.
I represented a man who sustained bad injuries in a rear-end collision when he was hit by a truck. We were able to reveal that the defendant’s one million dollars of insurance wasn’t enough. We did some digging and found out that they had a universal policy of an additional two million dollars. We were able to get all three million dollars paid to that man due to the diligent work on our part.
You can be sure that the insurance companies are doing everything they can to minimize your claim. You need to work with a personal injury trial attorney who has deep experience in car wreck cases to make sure you get a just recovery.
