What kinds of damages would I be eligible to seek as a result of a personal injury caused by a trucking accident?

There are three categories of damages that may be applicable, depending on the nature of the case and the extent and nature of your injuries. Special damages, general damages and, in the case of egregious negligence, punitive damages. General damages typically includes pain and suffering. Special damages relate to medical bills, co-payments, mileage, lost wages, etc. Punitive damages may be awarded if the negligence in the case is so egregious that a court awards damages as a punishment, and to make an example of a defendant.
