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 your life.
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.
