What are my options if I was in a Greenville truck accident?
A negligent truck driver can turn your life upside down. Just as you were powerless to control the circumstances of the wreck with the truck, you are powerless to control the mounting medical bills and the loss of wages due to the accident. But you do have power to control your next move. You have options and you always have the right to an experienced lawyer who will clearly explain those options so that you can make an informed decision on your next steps.
What can I recover if I was in a truck accident?
Your individual recovery will be unique to you and there are many factors that could potentially impact your recovery. However, in general, you may be entitled to recover the following categories of damages from the truck driver, trucking company, or other person who caused your injuries:
- Medical expenses. You may be able to receive compensation for all past, current, and future medical expenses as a result of your injuries.
- Out-of-pocket Expenses. You may be able to receive compensation for other out-of-pocket expenses incurred resulting from the accident, including household help, transportation, child care, or funeral expenses.
- Loss of income. You may be able to receive compensation for lost income, but you have to prove the value of your lost income. You may be required to present copies of (1) pay stubs, (2) tax returns, (3) employment contract, and (4) any other documentation that can prove the value of your wage, benefits, or income.
- Pain and suffering. You may be able to receive compensation for the pain and suffering you endured after the truck accident. Although there are no bills or documents that you can submit to prove pain and suffering, you may present evidence during settlement negotiations or to the court to prove the seriousness of you injuries and the devastating impact to your life.
