Injuries Commonly Seen in Truck Accidents

Research indicates that in collisions between passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles, the occupants of passenger vehicles are more likely to be injured or killed than occupants of commercial vehicles. The size of commercial vehicles presents especially dangerous circumstances in the event of a crash.

Common injuries sustained in truck accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injury,
  • Broken bones,
  • Internal injuries,
  • Paralysis, and
  • Death.

If you lost a loved one due to injuries sustained in a truck accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. You could potentially recover damages for the victim’s lost earning potential and funeral expenses, among other things. Contact Gerling Law today to speak to one of our committed and compassionate truck accident injury attorneys.

Compensation for Truck Accident Victims 

Indiana state permits victims injured in truck accidents to recover compensatory damages through economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages represent directly calculable losses resulting from the accident and include the following:

  • Medical expenses, 
  • Lost wages, 
  • Loss of future earnings, 
  • Property damage.

Carefully preserving all documentation supporting these losses is vital to collecting the total value of your economic damages demand. Documentation includes invoices, bills, medical records, and pay stubs. Provide these to your semi-truck accident lawyer in Evansville, who can begin calculating these losses’ value. 

Non-economic damages represent the intangible harm suffered due to your collision and include your harm’s psychological and emotional effects. These damages represent the following:

  • Pain and suffering,
  • Emotional distress, 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, 
  • Loss of consortium, 
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement.

Due to their subjective nature, these losses are challenging to establish without the help of qualified Evansville truck accident attorneys. However, these losses tend to have a more significant impact on an injured victim’s life when compared to direct financial losses.
