How Much Compensation Will I Receive for My Truck Accident?

Truck Accident Settlement Attorney Indianapolis

As an accident victim facing medical expenses, lost income, vehicle repair bills (or the replacement of totaled vehicle), and the physical and emotional aftereffects of a truck crash, it is only natural to wonder how much your case may be worth. After all, nothing can change the past, and financial recovery is the only way that the law can attempt to make victims whole again.

With this in mind, it is unsurprising that one of the first questions that new clients ask us is how much they will be able to recover. Unfortunately, this is a very difficult question to answer, and it is impossible to provide even a ballpark figure without conducting a thorough analysis of all of the aspects of a particular case. Some of the factors that will affect the amount of compensation that you ultimately receive include the following:

  • What you do for a living
  • Whether your own negligence contributed to your accident
  • The severity of your injuries
  • Whether you will have any long-term complications or disabilities as a result of your accident
  • Your age

These factors will differ significantly in every case, so there is no way to talk about a “typical” truck accident settlement or award. Some truck accident cases result in 5-figure settlements, while others are only resolved after a jury awards a victim an award well into the millions of dollars.

An Attorney Can Help You Get the Compensation You Deserve

Recovering compensation after an accident involves establishing damages through the production of evidence. Typically, truck accident cases are resolved by settling with an insurance company. That company will want to see documentation of your medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and other losses before offering you money. In addition, if you are unable to settle the case, you will need to produce evidence of your damages in court to maximize any award you ultimately receive.

As a victim, establishing damages, negotiating with the insurance company, or filing a lawsuit can be daunting and next to impossible without the assistance of an experienced lawyer. As a result, if you have been hurt in an accident, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to help you recover the compensation to which you are entitled under Indiana law.
