How Do I Measure the Value of My Truck Accident Case?

Jul 8, 2024 | Truck Accident


Understanding how to measure the value of your truck accident case is crucial in ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve. At Stewart & Stewart Attorneys, we frequently receive questions about this process, and we’re here to guide you through it.

Hire the Right Attorney

First and foremost, it’s essential to consult with an attorney experienced in truck accident cases. Truck accidents are complex and differ significantly from regular car accidents. An attorney who handles these cases regularly will know what to look for and how to maximize your claim’s value.

Key Factors in Valuing Your Case

Several factors contribute to the value of your truck accident case. Here are the primary considerations:

Medical Bills: The cost of your medical treatment is a significant factor. This includes not only your current medical expenses but also any future medical care you may need due to the accident.

Pain and Suffering: This compensates for the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident. The more severe your injuries, the higher this amount tends to be.

Lost Wages: If your injuries prevent you from working, you can claim compensation for lost income. This also includes future lost earning potential if your ability to work is permanently affected.

Impact on Your Life: Consider how the accident has affected your daily life. Have you missed important events or been unable to participate in hobbies you enjoy? These factors can increase your compensation.

Additional Considerations

Were you married at the time of the accident? Did a loved one witness the incident? These aspects can also impact your case’s value. The emotional trauma experienced by family members or witnesses can add to the overall compensation.

We’ll work diligently to gather all necessary data, from medical records to the truck’s black box information, to build a strong case.
