I was involved in a serious accident with a semi and would like to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for my injuries. What could I possibly recover?

The victims of serious truck accidents may be entitled to recover financial compensation for any medical expenses, including rehabilitation, pain management, therapy and other necessary expenses for the rest of their lives, if needed. They may also be able to receive compensation for past and future loss of income, past and future pain and mental anguish, and past and future physical impairment. It is important to talk to an attorney as soon as you can to start working on your case.

In order to win your claim, you need to prove the truck driver was negligent and that the driver’s negligence was the direct (or proximate) cause of your injuries. In trucking injury accidents, proving negligence usually involves proving the driver violated state and/or federal regulations. Courts have indicated that violations of existing rules are unequivocal proof of negligence.
