Truck accident litigation differs from a car accident case in many ways, but one of the most important differences involves the amount of insurance available to cover severe injury claims. When a car accident results in permanent brain damage or spinal cord injuries, there’s a high likelihood that neither driver’s insurance will come close to covering the full range of the victim’s losses and future needs.
In a truck accident, however, the driver and owner will almost certainly be covered by commercial liability insurance of $1 million or more. That means your attorney needs to be prepared to prove extensive damages claims in detail, most often in collaboration with medical experts, economists, rehabilitative specialists, and life care planners.
Using established cost data, I detail the costs associated with surgery, in-home nursing care, physical therapy, medical equipment, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. If a case goes to trial, I am prepared to tell my client’s story in detail so that jurors understand how a truck driver’s negligence impacted not just my client but an entire family.
This approach to the proof of damages in truck accident cases can apply as well to the full range of commercial vehicle accidents and injury claims:
- Bus accidents
- Airport shuttle van collisions
- Maintenance or repair vehicle accidents
- Delivery van wrecks
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Taxi crashes
I understand what it takes to develop and present negligence on the part of truck drivers, trucking companies and commercial vehicle operators. I also know how to meet the challenges of proving complex damages claims against tough opposition.
