Damages may be compensable following a truck accident

Banner Image

An accident involving a big rig can have some serious -- if not fatal -- consequences. As such, it is likely that the victims of such incidents or – in the event of fatality -- their loved ones will experience some pretty significant losses. If a truck accident occurs, whether in New York or elsewhere, those negatively affected may be able to seek compensation for any damages they have sustained.

When it comes to seeking damages following a truck accident, some may not know where to begin or what losses are even recoverable. Victims, or surviving family members of victims, may turn to experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorneys in order to determine what -- if any -- legal actions may be filed in an effort to seek compensation. Every situation is different, so getting a case evaluation really is the first step toward pursuing damages.

In accordance with state laws, there are various losses that may be recovered following a trucking accident. These include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, loss of consortium and special damages -- among numerous others. In order for compensation to be achieved, negligence has to be established in court against the party or parties deemed responsible for the accident, and any damages sustained have to be documented.

Seeking compensation following a truck accident is not a small or simple feat. These cases can be difficult, as they involve filing claims against truck drivers, their employers and any others who may have contributed to the cause of the crash. While not easy, with the assistance of legal counsel, those in New York who have incurred losses in trucking accidents can take the steps necessary to seek full and fair compensation.
