Can I File a Claim After a Truck Accident?
There are a few ways to determine if you will be able to file a claim for your truck accident. First, we would need to determine who the liable party is. This is the person who is directly responsible for causing you harm. If we can identify a liable party, you likely can proceed with filing a claim.
However, you must be aware of the statute of limitations in New York State. This is a legally binding statute. You have three years from the date of the accident in which you are permitted to file a claim. Any attempt to file a claim after this statute runs out will be unsuccessful.
If you can identify who was responsible for your serious injuries and you are within your statute of limitations, you should reach out to our truck accident attorney today.
How a Truck Accident Attorney Fights for Your Justice
One of the biggest obstacles that your lawyer is going to face is dealing with the insurance company. The liable party’s insurance company is going to be standing in the way of giving you the results that you need. They do not want to give you any money, but when you have a lawyer pushing against them trying to fight for your full justice, they often feel backed against the wall.
Your lawyer and the liable party’s insurance company are going to be involved in negotiations regarding your compensation award. There will be an initial offer that is almost always going to be too low. Even the second offer from the insurance company will likely be too low.
Our lawyers do not give up until you have the results that you deserve.
Types of Damages You Can Receive Compensation For
There are two types of damages in which you can receive compensation for: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages can include things such as your medical bills, lost wages, and disability. If you have lost the ability to return to the same type of work you did before your accident or the ability to work at all, you deserve compensation for this financial loss. Medical bills can also take a serious toll on you. We fight to get you compensation for all of the money that you have lost and all the money you are anticipated to lose due to this accident.
Your non-economic damages can include things such as your pain and suffering, your emotional distress, loss of life quality, etc. A lot of people who have been involved in truck accidents will experience mental health problems associated with the accident. You deserve full compensation for all of your non-economic damages just as much as you do your economic damages.
