Compensation in an Odessa Truck Accident Case
Compensation that may be available to you in a collision with a semi-truck depends on two primary factors. These are the circumstances surrounding the accident itself and the extent and nature of injuries that you sustained in the collision.
With that noted, an Odessa truck accident lawyer from our firm typically fights to obtain compensation to cover injuries, damages, and losses that include:
- lost wages
- medical bills
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
Our legal teal is tireless in ensuring you obtain complete justice in your case. This includes fighting for compensation beyond existing losses. For example, after a truck collision, you may require medical care and treatment for an extended period of time. You may not be able to return to your job any time soon. You very well may experience significant pain and suffering or mental anguish and emotional distress indefinitely as well. All of these represent the types of ongoing losses for which the attorneys at The Doan Law Firm seek justice and compensation for your clients.
You may also be entitled to punitive or exemplary damages. Punitive damages represents additional financial compensation that is awarded in a limited number of personal injury lawsuits. Punitive damages are awarded when a determination is made in court that the conduct of the party or parties that caused the accident was particularly reckless or egregious.
