Why Truck Accidents Are More Devastating Than Car Accidents

Lever & Ecker, PLLC September 8, 2023 Car Accidents,Truck Crash

While all personal injury accidents are devastating, accidents involving trucks tend to be more damaging than the average car crash. While many factors may lead to the devastation that precedes truck accidents, one of the most prevalent reasons for the catastrophic results of these crashes is the sheer size and mass of these vehicles. If you were injured in a truck accident, you have the right to pursue justice by filing a truck accident claim with a trusted lawyer.

At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, our New York personal injury lawyers have over 65 years of combined experience representing victims as they seek justice after being injured in a devastating truck accident. Pursuing compensation after an accident can be overwhelming. That is why our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to providing personalized legal counsel and fighting to recover deserved compensation for your losses. 

Are Truck Accidents More Devastating Than Other Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents?

All motor vehicle accidents are damaging to the victims involved. However, truck accidents can be some of the most devastating when compared to accidents involving smaller vehicles due to the sheer size and mass of commercial trucks. When a vehicle of that size collides with a smaller vehicle like a car or motorcycle, the results can be highly damaging and may even lead to death. 

If you were involved in a truck accident, you may be wondering what your legal options are as you recover from the damaging injuries you have suffered. With a trusted lawyer, you can pursue legal action to get justice for your losses by filing a personal injury claim. When filing a personal injury claim, you can prove the liability of the negligent party who is responsible for the truck accident and collect compensation for the harm you have suffered, including your injuries, lost income and out-of-pocket expenses.

What Damages Can You Recover From a Truck Accident Case?

After you have been injured in a truck accident, you have the right to pursue justice by filing a personal injury accident. A trusted lawyer can investigate to better understand what damages you may be eligible to recover. Additionally, your lawyer will calculate how much you should expect to get in compensation for your injuries and other losses. 

The damages you may be eligible to collect after you are harmed in a devastating truck accident include:

  • Pain and suffering (past and future)
  • Lost wages and income (past and future)
  • Lost earning potential
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses

When filing your truck accident claim, the insurance provider will often try to offer victims a lowball settlement. That is why it is crucial to work with an experienced truck accident lawyer who will be able to negotiate with the insurance provider to ensure you are able to recover the full compensation you are owed for all you have suffered as a result of the negligent party’s actions.
