    What Damages Can I Recover From Truck Accident Settlements And Verdicts?

    If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, you’ve probably suffered substantial financial losses. For instance, you might have to purchase a replacement vehicle. Also, you might have costly medical bills. Perhaps, you’ve also lost your job because you’re unable to work.

    At Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers, our Atlanta truck accident lawyers we’ll ensure that you’re compensated. First, we’ll analyze your injuries. Then, we will calculate the value of your losses. Next, we’ll make the insurance company pay you what you deserve. If they won’t negotiate with us, we’ll take them to trial.

    Here are the common types of compensation that we recover for our clients:

    • Past, present, and future medical costs
      Your medical bills may be huge. You may need future medical attention, as well. We’ll fight to get all of those bills resolved.
    • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
      You may be unable to work as a result of the truck accident. Perhaps, you have to miss work to attend your doctor’s appointments. We can help you recover your lost wages and paid time off (PTO). If you’re completely disabled, we can help you obtain disability benefits. Additionally, we can set up a special needs trust for you.
    • Pain and suffering
      You can recover compensation for your emotional distress that was caused by the truck accident.
    • Permanent disability or disfigurement
      Sometimes, truck accidents cause permanent impairments. We will help you get evaluated by a life care planner that will calculate all of your future medical care.
    • Property damage
      You must be compensated for damages to your car or any other property that was harmed by your truck wreck.

    What Damages Can My Family Recover From Truck Accident Settlements And Verdicts?

    Truck accidents are often fatal. If someone you love was killed by a truck, you can pursue a wrongful death truck claim. Wrongful death claims can be filed by spouses, parents, children, or other dependents. We can help you recover damages for:

    • Funeral and burial expenses
    • Loss of benefits
    • Loss of companionship
    • Mental anguish
    • Loss of guidance and nurturing

    Additionally, you may be able to pursue a survival claim. A survival claim is a personal injury claim filed by an estate representative on behalf of the deceased. It enables the representative to recover compensation for the deceased’s medical bills, conscious pain and suffering, and other losses attributable to the collision.

    Georgia’s Statute Of Limitations(SOL) Impacts Your Settlement Or Verdict

    Georgia personal injury claims must be filed within two years of an injury. Otherwise, a court may dismiss the claim. Wrongful death claims are subject to a a two-year filing deadline.

    Fortunately, there are some exceptions to Georgia’s statute of limitations (SOL) laws. For example, the SOL might toll if your injury doesn’t appear until several years after the truck collision. However, that exception is difficult to prove. Therefore, you will need an experienced injury or wrongful death lawyer on your team.

    Many people delay hiring a lawyer until the SOL nearly expires. That’s a dangerous mistake. For instance, it takes a long time to review a truck accident case. Also, it may take months just to obtain your medical records. Therefore, it’s important to hire a truck accident lawyer ASAP.
