Get The Compensation You Deserve For Truck Accident Injuries
Truck accidents are devastating for injury victims and their entire families. Fortunately, Michigan law allows you to recover financial compensation when you suffer injuries and losses due to the negligence of another driver. Damages available to in a truck accident case include:
- Medical Expenses: You are entitled to recover for your costs related to all types of medical services, including care provided at the scene, immediate care, rehabilitation and therapy, and going treatment.
- Lost Wages: If you’re out of work after a truck accident, the law allows you compensation for the income that you were unable to earn at your job.
- Pain and Suffering: While it’s difficult to put into words, you no doubt experience a certain amount of discomfort. You can recover for pain and suffering, but proving your claim may require assistance from medical experts.
- Loss of Personal Relationships: Your injuries may have a negative impact on your relationship with your spouse, children, and other loved ones. A truck accident case may include claims for loss of consortium or society.
An insurer may offer to settle these damages without going to court, but it’s important to remember that these companies are businesses first. They don’t have your best interests in mind, and will attempt to protect their bottom line by offering a low-ball amount that doesn’t fully compensate you for your losses. It’s critical to retain an experienced attorney that will fight for your rights against pushy insurance companies.
