What is your Truck Accident Case Worth?

The unique circumstances of your accident and resulting injuries will factor into the value of your truck accident claim. In some cases, we may wait until clients have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) to accurately assess your medical costs and expenses.

Some key variables that will influence potential settlement amounts:

  • Were you partly responsible for the accident?
  • What kind of injuries did you suffer, and what is your prognosis?
  • Have you been left with permanent disabilities or other impairments?
  • Has the quality of your life been negatively affected by your injuries?
  • Will your injuries require ongoing medical treatment?
  • How much insurance coverage does the defendant have? 

Generally speaking, truck accident claims where the victim suffered scarring, disfigurement, or permanent injury will recover significant compensation to account for emotional distress, reduced earning capacity, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Evidence Crucial to Truck Accident Injury Claims

Whether your accident involved spilled cargo or you were rear-ended by a speeding truck driver, our legal team will initiate an immediate investigation to get to the truth. When analyzing the cause of the accident, we will look for:

  • The truck’s onboard electronic logging device, or ELD, that records the driving speed, steering wheel position, GPS, and the use of brakes at the time of the accident
  • Previous FMSCA violations of the trucking company
  • The truck driver’s license, training, and driving record
  • Inspection and maintenance history of the truck
  • Hours of service records for the driver
  • The truck driver’s cell phone records
  • Surveillance footage from traffic or dashboard cams
  • Witness statements
