Rebuilding Your Life with a Road Rage Truck Accident Injury Lawyer
Road rage is the underlying cause of about 1,500 fatalities on U.S. roadways
annually in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Thousands more are injured each year in road rage incidents. This includes
a small percentage of people who are intentionally killed or injured in
road rage incidents. Most of the injuries or deaths arise from accidents
that occur because of road rage.
A notable percentage of road rage deaths and injuries involve the driver
of a commercial semi-truck. The harsh reality is that when a big rig driver
explodes into a state of rage, the semi itself becomes a mammoth-like,
high-powered weapon. The consequences to innocent people sharing a roadway
with an enraged semi driver can be catastrophic.

Compensation in a Road Rage Truck Accident Injury Case
The facts and circumstances surrounding your accident, coupled with the
nature and extent of your injuries, generally govern the compensation
you need in your case. With that said, areas in which you are likely to
seek compensation for your losses include:
- medical expenses
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional stress
- lost income
- permanent disability
- damaged property
If you are like most people injured in a commercial truck accident, your
losses are likely to be extensive. For example, you may endure chronic
pain well into the future.
You may be in the midst of ongoing medical treatment, like physical and
occupational therapy. Medical care reasonably may be expected to continue
indefinitely into the future.
You may not be able to return to your job any time soon. In fact, you may
be unable to return to the same position of employment at any time in
These losses all represent examples of things for which you may be entitled
to compensation. A truck accident injury attorney from The Doan Law Firm
will be committed to fighting tirelessly to obtain full compensation for
you in your case.
Due to the nature of road rage, if you have sustained injuries in this
type of case involving a big rig, you may be entitled to what are known
as punitive damages. The laws in all states permit punitive or exemplary
damages in lawsuits in certain situations.
Punitive damages are awarded in personal injury cases in which the conduct
of the person causing the accident, and injuries, is considered particularly
reckless or egregious. By definition, a situation in which a commercial
semi-truck driver causes an accident because of his or her rage, punitive
damages would seem to be a real possibility.
