Commercial trucks are much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles. When a truck accident occurs, the vast differences in size and mass causes havoc. The force of the impact will do the most damage to the smaller vehicle, so catastrophic injuries are quite common in truck accident cases.
Common injuries suffered in truck accidents include:
Catastrophic injuries call for extensive medical care that patients in other types of accidents usually never require. The cost of this care can be astounding. Furthermore, undergoing weeks of hospitalization and enduring surgeries will mean missing work and lost paychecks. When everything adds up, the money that you need to recover from your injuries in a truck accident can be significant.
Compensation that you should get for a catastrophic truck injury claim should be:
When a truck accident causes fatal injuries, the surviving family members of the deceased can likely bring a wrongful death claim and a survival action against the truck driver and trucking company. Damages in such cases are similar to a catastrophic injury claim, but also expand to include costs associated with the death, like burial costs and the pain of lost companionship experienced by family members. Surviving spouses get the first opportunity to file a claim, followed by children and personal representatives of the deceased’s estate.
