Paralysis After a Truck Accident
Get Justice with an Experienced, Committed, Caring Commercial Truck Accident
Injury Lawyer from The Doan Law Firm
Commercial trucks were involved in an estimated 161,000 collisions in 2015,
according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. That is the last year
for which a full set of statistical data is available.
Of those commercial truck accidents, about 4,700 people were killed and
90,000 people were injured. The vast majority people killed and injured
in commercial truck accidents were individuals in passenger automobiles
involved in the collisions.
Oftentimes, the commercial truck accident injuries are severe, including
paralysis. If you have been involved in a big rig wreck that resulted
in serious injuries like paralysis, you need to be proactive in obtaining
the professional assistance of a skilled, experienced truck accident injury
lawyer, like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm.

Taking on a Major Insurance Company in a Commercial Truck Accident Injury Case
The truck accident injury legal team at The Doan Law Firm understands how
big insurance companies do business. Our legal team understands why these
huge corporations are in business in the first place.
An automobile insurance company has one primary goal and that is to make
money for its shareholders. One key strategy an insurance company employs
to increase its profits is limiting the amount of money it pays to injured
people like you with valid claims. This even includes people with severe,
life-altering injuries like paralysis.
A commercial truck accident injury attorney from our firm has mastered
the strategies and tactics necessary to meet an insurance company head-on.
We powerfully fight an insurance company to obtain justice and the compensation
you deserve in your case.
Compensation in a Commercial Truck Accident Injury Case
If you suffered paralysis as the result of a big rig accident, nothing
can ever completely restore your life. Nonetheless, we will work diligently
to ensure that you do get the compensation you deserve, to ensure that
a sense of justice is restored in your life.
The nature and extent of compensation you receive in a commercial truck
accident injury case does revolve around the facts of the accidents and
the extent of your injuries. When you suffer a permanent disability like
paralysis you deserve compensation that restores at least some sense of
balance in your life on a number of different fronts.
Examples of the general types of losses for which we fight to obtain compensation
for you include:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
- lost income
With a permanent disability like paralysis, a special emphasis must be
on ensuring that you obtain compensation for this type of ongoing loss.
Components of this compensation include money for ongoing medical care
and treatment, lost income, and associated damages.
Depending on the nature of the accident and the surrounding facts, you
may also be entitled to what are called punitive or exemplary damages.
Punitive or exemplary damages represent additional compensation awarded
to you in a lawsuit when the conduct of the party causing the accident
is considered particularly reckless.
There are two purposes behind punitive or exemplary damages. As mentioned,
they serve to provide you additional compensation in your case. In addition,
punitive damages provide a means of punishing the party that caused an
accident for what is determined to be particularly egregious conduct.
