What Kind Of Compensation Can I Expect?
Each one of the aforementioned truck accident types has the potential to be catastrophic, if not deadly. In 2013 alone, there were nearly 3,000 serious accidents involving tractor-trailers throughout the state of Texas, with over 350 resulting in fatalities. Those are staggering numbers. So it should come as no surprise when we say that the amounts awarded in tractor trailer settlements and lawsuits can run especially high. The following are just a few examples of the expenses involved with an 18-wheeler wreck:
- Medical or hospital bills
- Rehabilitation and therapy costs
- Loss of job or wages
- Loss of loved one, guardianship or companionship
- Emotional and physical suffering
- Property damage
- Punitive damages (only in the case of gross negligence)
Should I Speak with the Trucking Company?
Here is a general rule to stick with when it comes to severe accidents with multi-state trucking companies: NEVER speak with them. No matter who approaches you from their camp, no matter how generous or genuine their offer may feel, do not engage in a single conversation with them. The bottom line is this: trucking companies, and the insurance adjustors that cover them, are only concerned with saving as much money as possible. The last thing on their collective mind is your well-being or your family's health. They are in the business of making money - and business is not good if you walk away with a sizeable settlement. They will do everything in their power - legal or otherwise - to prevent that from happening. Which is why, following your accident, you must NOT speak with them.
