How much money may I be entitled to if I win my trucking accident lawsuit?

There is no set amount that you may be awarded in a trucking accident lawsuit. The circumstances of the case and the extent of your injuries usually dictate a possible range of what you may be awarded or be offered in a settlement. Having said that, it is difficult to determine a figure as it is dependent on the amount of damage, the degree of negligence on the part of the at-fault party, the injuries sustained, whether or not there is an existing prior record for negligence and other factors.

Additionally, part of any award or settlement typically involves lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, and possibly punitive damages. A personal injury attorney is able to give you an approximate idea of what you may be awarded, but it is not set in stone and may be higher or lower than requested of the court.
