Damages must be carefully considered in semitruck crash cases

When you are injured in a semitruck crash, you might feel like life as you knew it is over. This might very well be the case if you suffered an injury that is going to impact you for the rest of your life. Some injuries, such as brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, might not enable you to return to the activities you did before the crash.

We know that you might want to just go hide in your bed and wish that the accident never happened. While that desire is understandable, we want you to know about your options for dealing with the effects of the crash. You can choose to seek compensation for the damages you are dealing with because of the crash.

Compensation that you seek isn’t just some arbitrary figure. Instead, we work to determine the amount of money you have spent and will have to spend on factors related to the crash. This includes care costs, such as medical and mental health care. It also includes claims for money you have to spend on devices, such as shower bars and a shower chair if you need those for self-care.

We also need to determine how much money you should have earned but couldn’t earn because the accident debilitated you. This is known as loss of earning capacity and is a big factor in your case, especially if you have a family to support.

We understand that this is a trying time for you and your family. We are here to help you as you navigate through the legal system in an effort to claim the compensation you deserve.
