Damages stemming from a truck accident

Trucks are the backbone of the United States economy. The more trucks you see on the roads of North Carolina, the better the economy is performing. Despite them being a big part of the economy, trucks are also a big danger to other motorists. Getting into a truck accident in a smaller vehicle can be devastating. Let's take a look at the damages that stem from a truck accident.

One of the most common damages that victims of truck accidents recover include those for medical expenses. Even if your injury is not severe, you can still recover compensation for medical bills. Any length of stay in the hospital can be an expensive one, even with insurance. The various tests performed can reach the thousands of dollars.

Another damage recoverable in a truck accident case is lost wages. If your injury keeps you out of work for a week, you can recover those wages. If the injury keeps you out of work for a month, two months, three months or years, you can recover the lost wages for that missed time. Are you permanently disabled due to the accident? You can recover damages for lost wages up until the time when you would have retired.

Pain and suffering can also be considered a recoverable damage from a truck accident. Accidents can cause victims quite a bit of anguish, fear and trauma. This can last a lifetime. Those responsible for the accident can be held liable for the pain and suffering of their victims.

When you have been injured in a truck accident in Wilson it's best to protect your rights immediately. The longer you wait to file a lawsuit, the closer you get to the statute of limitations. You can recover compensation for the damages caused by a truck accident so be sure to know your rights.
