When does a truck accident warrant a lawsuit?
Though truck accidents happen all the time, not every accident warrants a personal injury lawsuit. The main difference between an average accident and one that warrants a lawsuit is liability.
You can seek compensation through a personal injury case if your truck accident happened through little or no fault of your own. If you were the main cause of the accident, you most likely will not be able to recover any damages from the other party, and might even have to pay out restitution to the other party.
The truck driver is the party most commonly responsible for truck accidents. All Playa Vista truck drivers are required by Federal law to have a commercial license, or CDL. However, this additional training and licensing don’t always prevent accidents. Truck drivers can cause truck accidents by:
- Driving over federally allowed hours
- Driving while fatigued
- Poor decision making
- Driving while distracted, talking on the phone or texting
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Improperly packing or securing loads
How much do truck accident lawyers charge?
The average truck accident lawyer typically charges about one-third of the total awarded compensation or settlement upon completion of the case. Ellis Law Corporation’s Playa Vista truck accident attorneys do not charge upfront fees. We offer free initial consultations, and you only pay our fee if we win compensation on your behalf.
What damages may I collect after a truck accident?
Compensation for your injuries will be awarded based on a variety of factors including:
- All current, past and future medical bills from the accident
- General pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Funeral and/or burial costs (if the accident resulted in a death)
- Mental trauma
- Disability-related home modifications
