ASSESSING TRUCK ACCIDENT DAMAGES
Your Trusted Advocates in Truck Accident Cases.
Assessing damages in a truck accident case is a critical component of seeking fair compensation for your losses. These damages can be categorized into economic (special) and non-economic (general) damages. Economic damages encompass medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and future earnings, along with any other out-of-pocket expenses directly related to the accident. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, account for intangible losses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the impact on your overall quality of life. Additionally, punitive damages, intended to punish the defendant for particularly reckless behavior, may be awarded in exceptional cases. Assessing future damages often involves consulting experts to project long-term medical costs, lost earnings, and ongoing suffering accurately.
