How Much is My Claim Worth in Auto vs Truck Accident?

On behalf of greg

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident involving a large truck, you may be entitled to significant compensation. If the negligent actions of a truck driver or trucking company were responsible for the crash, the team at Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. are ready to step in and help. We will investigate the incident and work to secure the compensation you deserve. When you need a Philadelphia truck accident attorney, we will get to work on your case.

Your claim amount depends on a variety of factors

Crashes with large trucks happen all the time, and they can result in serious injury or even death for victims. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were approximately 148,000 total people injured and over 4,700 people killed in large truck accidents during the latest reporting year in the US.

There is no set amount that is awarded for a truck accident injury case, and there are several factors that go into determining the amount. Even if it is determined that a truck driver or trucking company were negligent in the case, there are some things to consider:

  • Insurance companies can be difficult. These companies are not going to willingly hand out a large settlement unless they are forced to do so based on the evidence of the case.
  • If a personal injury lawsuit is filed, you will still be dealing with the insurance company as well as a legal team.
  • Cases can be settled out of court or in a trial, and there are pros and cons to each approach.

Your Philadelphia truck accident attorney will present all of the facts of the case. They will thoroughly investigate by gathering accident reports, eyewitness accounts, video and photo surveillance, company and driver records, and more.

It will be important to gather all of your medical bills and proof of lost income. These can be included in the total damages you are awarded. Also included will be your pain and suffering damages as well as the cost of medical care expected in the future from your truck accident injuries.
