Kevin Biniazin, an experienced truck accident attorney and legal contributor for Legal Herald, has offered the following insight regarding the legal rights of those involved in truck accidents:
“An event as traumatic as a truck accident can permanently change a family due to the injuries and even death that can result from them. Moreover, physical pain is not the only impact to be considered; emotional trauma and financial struggles can also put more pressure on loved ones who are trying to heal.
It is true that nothing can change the past, but there definitely exist medical treatments and specialized therapies which can help those who’ve been injured to recover. Unfortunately, these valuable recourses can be very costly. Consider that, for a person who suffers a traumatic brain injury, their total lifetime care can reach past the $3 million mark.
Victims should also be aware of the fact that insurance policies are unlikely to cover all of the treatment required. In most cases, this is due to the fact that the policy reaches its limit, and insurance adjusters stop paying out the benefits. In these situations, pursuing a truck accident lawsuit can be a victim’s only hope fo recovering full compensation.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a truck or tractor-trailer accident, it’s possible to recover compensations to pay for damages including:
- Physical trauma
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of income
- Funeral / burial bills
- Medical treatment
