Costs that Come with a Truck Accident
Your bills for medical treatment will likely be paid through a combination of insurance and possibly personal money. Your immediate medical care can easily be thousands of dollars since you are financially responsible for the ambulance ride to the hospital as well as any treatment you receive. Medical bills from injuries resulting from a truck accident can be astronomical in the event of a serious accident.
It is possible that you will need additional rehabilitation and physical therapy after the initial medical care you receive after suffering injuries in a truck accident. These treatments can be short term or can take months and even years in some cases. These unexpected expenses add up quickly in addition to your other costs due to an accident.
In the event that you will need to take some time off from work while recovering from injuries sustained in a truck accident, you stand to lose your ability to currently earn income. These lost wages from the time off intensify the financial pressure that you will face in the aftermath of an accident. The longer you are away from work, the more difficult your situation can be.
Lost of Future Earning Potentials
Injuries sustained in a truck accident can impair your ability to make the same or similar earnings you are making now or can prevent you from increasing your income in the future. The loss of future earning potential is an item that can be calculated to help compensate you for your truck accident injuries.
If the injuries you suffer from a truck accident are permanent, then you will feel the effects and costs of your accident for the rest of your life. From internal injuries to physical limitations after an accident, permanent injuries are unfortunately too common when people are involved in a truck accident.
How a Personal Injury Attorney Helps You Recover From a Devastating Truck Accident
A truck accident attorney’s experience will help them evaluate the dollar value of your case when considering all the appropriate factors. This experience will help drive every part of your case. Truck accidents are unique in nature as the cause of the accident could be any of a number of unseen factors. A seasoned truck accident attorney will have experience in dealing with insurance adjusters, other attorneys, and medical personnel to best assist you with your claim.
Negotiation skills are sharpened best both by experience and knowledge. Don’t go into your case by yourself never having negotiated a truck accident insurance claim. Insurance companies prey on those who don’t realize the true amount of compensation they deserve. An expert negotiator can be the difference in what you are offered to compensate you for your claims.
Meticulous Record Keeping
The records involving anything related to your truck accident are of the utmost importance. Leaving out a single record can be the difference in what you are able to recover for your injuries. The driver of a truck may have a checkered driving record, it is important to seek these records to see if there is any negligence on the part of the truck driver’s employer. An experienced truck accident attorney knows which records are important and knows how to get them for you if you aren’t able to.
A thorough investigation of both the scene of the accident and any police or medical records are key to the maximum recovery in the event of a truck accident. The investigation is an important step that many attorneys may miss if they rush to judgment or are looking to settle your case quickly. An expert may be necessary to investigate the truck’s black box data to help determine how the truck was being operated at the time of the accident. An experienced truck accident injury attorney will do a thorough investigation before they start any negotiation.
While you can do all of these things on your own, it is advisable to at least speak to an experienced attorney to help you decide your path forward. You get one chance to do it right, so do everything you can to maximize your ability for a money recovery.

Sofia K. Miguel
Sofia and her assistant Alaina were so awesome to work with! Sofia works hard and truly fights for her clients to find justice. She is in your corner through the entire process and remains dedicated, compassionate, trustworthy, and loyal. She fought for me and worked on my case for over a year, never backing down and never giving up. As a result, she got me the settlement I deserved while her and her assistant Alaina fought for what was right and made the entire process stress-free by dealing with all parties involved, giving me time to recover from major injuries and getting back on my feet after being hit head-on in an auto accident by a distracted driver. I give Sofia two very enthusiastic thumbs up and highly recommend her to handle your case!
