Truck Accidents Can Lead to Major Injuries
Data from the Texas Department of Transportation shows that they were more than 4,000 crashes involving commercial motor vehicles across Dallas County during the latest reporting year on file. A significant portion of these collisions involved larger commercial trucks. These vehicles can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. Unfortunately, the sheer size and weight of these vehicles often means that those inside traditional passenger cars sustain significant injuries when a collision occurs.
Some of the most common injuries that we assist clients with after a Dallas truck accident include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and crush injuries, severe lacerations or puncture wounds, and internal organ damage.
In addition to physical injuries, our team also recognizes that truck crash victims often sustain significant emotional and psychological trauma that affects their daily lives. This can include feelings of constant anxiety, fear, and stress. It is imperative to show the insurance carrier or a personal injury jury how this incident has affected you as the victim.
How Much Compensation is Available for a Truck Accident Claim?
At Cherry Johnson Siegmund James, we believe in recovering the compensation clients need to be made as whole as possible after a large truck crash. This includes recovering “special” and “general” damages.
Special damages are also referred to as economic damages, and these are meant to compensate individuals for the calculable losses that they sustain. Our attorneys will examine receipts, estimates, and invoices that come in after the truck crash occurs to help calculate:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation or physical therapy
- Prescription medications and medical devices
- Lost income and loss of future earnings
- Household and transportation out-of-pocket expenses
- Property damage expenses
General damages are also referred to as non-economic damages, and these types of losses are more immeasurable. These do not revolve around direct calculable expenses but are equally as important. General damages are meant to help compensate individuals for their physical pain and suffering losses, emotional and psychological trauma, and loss of enjoyment of life caused by the incident.
