Perrysburg Truck Accident Attorney
The damages caused in a truck accident are almost always catastrophic, leaving a victim with tragic injuries and thousands of dollars’ worth of expenses. For the average person in a truck accident in Perrysburg, Ohio, the knowledge of how to recover compensation to pay for losses is elusive. If you have been in a crash involving a large truck, such as a semi or tractor-trailer, let our experienced Perrysburg truck accident lawyers represent you.
Damages Recoverable in a Truck Accident Claim
As mentioned above, truck accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents in terms of loss. For the victims of these accident types, recovering the full amount of damages possible is essential to the ability to move forward with life. By filing a truck accident claim, our attorneys can help you to recover compensation for:
- The costs of your injuries. Injuries are expensive to treat. You deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, including costs of medications, surgeries, hospital stay, doctors’ visits, physical therapy, and any long-term costs, such as permanent in-home care.
- Your economic losses. If you are in a crash and significantly injured, you will likely be unable to return to work for at least a few days, if not weeks, months, or even years. In some cases, your injuries may be so severe that you are permanently barred from returning to an income-earning position. If this is the case for you, you deserve to be compensated for your lost wages and benefits, especially if you are the primary income earner for your family. You also deserve to be compensated for any other economic losses you have suffered, such as the cost of your totaled vehicle.
- Pain, suffering, and emotional anguish. The physical injuries you suffer and the economic injuries that you incur are by no means the only damages sustained in a truck accident; you will have likely experienced pain, suffering, and emotional anguish and psychological injuries as well. Our attorneys will advocate on your behalf to recover these damages for you as well.
In addition to compensation for medical expenses, pain, suffering, lost wages, and other economic and noneconomic damages, you may also be entitled to punitive damages depending upon the degree of negligence that led to your injuries.
