Economic Damages

Economic damages are tangible financial losses, such as:

  • Property damage: The damage to other vehicles, buildings, signs, and other objects hit by the truck is considered property damage. This can include damage to a vehicle’s body, engine, transmission, and more.
  • Personal injury: People involved in trucking accidents can suffer physical injuries such as broken bones, cuts, bruises, and more serious injuries such as head trauma, paralysis, and death.
  • Medical expenses: The cost of medical treatment for physical injuries sustained in a trucking accident can be substantial, especially in cases where the injuries are severe. These expenses can include hospital stays, surgery, rehabilitation, and ongoing care for the rest of the person’s life.
  • Lost income: People who are unable to work as a result of their injuries sustained in a trucking accident can experience significant financial losses in the form of lost income. This can be particularly devastating for people who are the primary source of support for their families.

Non-economic Damages

Non-economic damages are intangible losses that don’t have a specific dollar value, such as:

  • Pain and suffering: People who have been involved in trucking accidents may experience physical and emotional pain and suffering. This can include things like anxiety, depression, and difficulty sleeping, which can impact the person’s quality of life and overall well-being.
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): PTSD can result in symptoms such as anxiety, depression, nightmares, flashbacks, and difficulty sleeping, which can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. Those who experience PTSD after a trucking accident may struggle with day-to-day activities, relationships, and work.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: This type of damage refers to the impact that the accident has had on an individual’s ability to engage in activities they previously enjoyed, such as hobbies, sports, or socializing with friends and family. The severity of the injury, the extent of physical limitations, and the psychological impact of the accident can all contribute to a loss of enjoyment of life. 
  • Loss of consortium: This type of damage refers to the loss or deprivation of the loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection or sexual relations of a family relationship due to the injuries or death caused by a trucking accident.  In some cases, the victim’s spouse or children may be entitled to compensation for their loss of consortium as part of the victim’s damages in the accident. 
Trucking accidents can result in a range of damages that can be both financial and non-financial in nature. These damages can have a lasting impact on the lives of those involved, and it is important for victims to seek the help of a qualified attorney who can help them recover the compensation they need to cover these costs and get their lives back on track.
