Contributor to Legal Herald and experienced truck accident attorney Bobby Thompson has shared his thoughts on the rights and legal options available to victims who sustained serious injuries in a truck crash:
“When someone’s negligence results in a truck accident, there exists the possibility for a person, group, or company to be held liable and responsible for the full extent of damages that may have taken place.
For a victim, filing a lawsuit after a truck accident can be one of the only ways to recover the compensation that they require to pay for losses that may include:
- Medical treatment
- Physical pain
- Emotional traum
- Loss of income
The remuneration can be achieved through a settlement with the defendant, or through a verdict in court. This compensation is always intended to pay for actual losses that the victim has suffered. As a result, this means that the outcome and compensation award for two different cases will also be completely unrelated and more than likely very different.
Enlisting the help of an experienced attorney who has a history of successful truck accident lawsuit outcomes is vital to most cases. If you’ve seen a loved one, or even yourself, suffer injuries after a collision with a truck, it can be of great help in your case to seek legal guidance as soon as possible.”
