If you are involved in a trucking accident in Illinois, our skilled attorneys in Lincolnshire are ready to take on your case, and help you understand how to maximize your compensation award.
Truck Accidents Lead to Devastating Losses
When you are involved in a truck accident, the amount of losses that you will likely suffer is monstrous. That’s because truck accidents are some of the most severe accident types – if drivers and passengers survive, it is typically not without disabling injuries. Some of the losses that you may be suffering, and which our lawyers will help you recoup in the form of financial compensation, include:
- Bills for medical expenses and treatment. Even if you have health insurance, it is not unlikely that you have incurred thousands, or even tens of thousands, of dollars worth in hospital bills, doctors’ visits, surgeries, medications, x-rays and CAT scans, and ongoing treatment. If your injuries are serious, the need for treatment may be ongoing, and the bills may continue to pile on.
- An inability to work and lost wages. When you are seriously injured, even thinking about work is an impossibility. Not only does this mean that you could be deprived of something you very much enjoy, as well as a social connection, but also that you will suffer lost wages. In some cases, harm sustained may be serious enough to prevent you from returning to work indefinitely, meaning that you may be forever unable to earn an income and provide for yourself and your family.
- Permanent disability, scarring, and disfigurement. Missing work may be the least of your problems; if you are injured and suffer a permanent disability, you may be prevented from doing things that you love the most, including playing with your kids, exercising, enjoying nature, and the like. Your injuries may even be serious enough to prevent you from caring for yourself without assistance.
- Emotional and psychological injuries. Finally, you may suffer emotional and psychological injuries as a result of your accident, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression. These injuries can be as debilitating as physical injuries.
When you are injured in a truck accident caused by no fault of your own, our Lincolnshire lawyers strongly believe that you deserve to be compensated for every penny of your losses. In the event that the truck accident causing your injuries was caused by willful, wanton, or reckless conduct, we can also seek punitive damages on your behalf.
