What Damages Can Be Recovered in an 18 Wheeler Accident Claim?

If you have been involved in an 18 wheeler accident, you may be entitled to recover damages from the responsible parties. The specific damages that you can recover will depend on the circumstances of your case and the extent of your injuries. Here are some of the most common types of damages that may be available in an 18 wheeler accident case:

Medical Expenses

If you were injured in the accident, you may be entitled to recover the cost of your medical expenses, including emergency care, hospital stays, surgeries, doctor visits, and prescription medications.

Lost Wages

If your injuries caused you to miss time from work, you may be entitled to recover the wages you would have earned during that time. This can include both past and future lost wages.

Property Damage

If your vehicle or other property was damaged in the accident, you may be entitled to recover the cost of repairs or replacement.

Pain and Suffering

If you suffered physical pain, emotional distress, or other types of suffering as a result of the accident, you may be entitled to recover damages for your pain and suffering.

Disability or Disfigurement

If your injuries caused a disability or disfigurement that affects your ability to work or enjoy life, you may be entitled to recover damages for these losses.

Punitive Damages

In some cases, the court may award punitive damages to punish the responsible party for their conduct. Punitive damages are only awarded in cases where the defendant's conduct was particularly egregious or reckless.

In conclusion, if you have been involved in an 18 wheeler accident, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you understand your rights and recover the damages to which you may be entitled. By pursuing a claim for damages, you can hold the responsible parties accountable and obtain the compensation you need to move forward.
