Severe Injuries Can Result in Costly Medical Treatment
A fully loaded large commercial vehicle can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, up to 20 or 30 times the weight of a passenger car. The impact of a vehicle this size can cause severe and debilitating injuries, including:
- Severe cuts, scrapes, and bruising (road rash)
- Back and spinal injuries
- Facial injuries
- Broken bones
- Organ damage
- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal bleeding
Unfortunately, truck accidents also often result in death. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), more than 4,000 people suffered a fatal truck accident injury in the United States in 2019.

We Can Help You Pursue Additional Economic and Non-Economic Damages
You likely have more accident-related losses in addition to the cost of your medical treatment. You may seek additional awards for:
Economic damages encompass your out-of-pocket expenses, including your lost wages, loss of future earning potential if you cannot return to work, and vehicle and personal property damages. You may also seek reimbursement for the help you have hired to assist you with household tasks you cannot perform because of your injuries, such as laundry, cleaning, cooking, and childcare.
Additionally, if you must modify your living space to accommodate mobility issues stemming from your accident, you can seek the cost of medically necessary home modifications.
Noneconomic damages compensate personal injury victims for intangible losses, including physical pain, emotional suffering, and mental anguish. For example, you could win awards for depression, anxiety, loss of sleep, paralysis, and loss of the ability to participate in hobbies and activities you used to enjoy.
Wrongful Death Compensation
This type of compensationallows you to recover awards if your loved one died from a truck accident injury. A representative of your family member’s estate (executor) can seek awards for the estate and the surviving beneficiaries. These awards include compensation for your family member’s funeral and burial expenses and medical care.
The executor can also take action on behalf of the deceased’s surviving loved ones for compensation related to the loss of the decedent’s love, care, support, and companionship. The specific awards you can seek depend on your relationship to the deceased and the specific circumstances of their accident.
