In the aftermath of a truck accident, an injured person may be entitled to compensation for different types of losses and injuries. An injured person is likely to accumulate what can amount to a considerable amount of medical expenses. These are compensable losses and can be claimed in a lawsuit.
The reality is that an injured person may not only have existing medical expenses, but may continue to incur them in the future. In a personal injury lawsuit, an injured person may claim medical expenses as well.
As a result of injuries in a truck accident, a person may not be able to return to work for a period of time. He or she is able to claim lost wages in a lawsuit as well. As is the case with medical expenses, an injured person may claim wages reasonably expected to be lost into the future. For example, a person may face permanent injuries, precluding that individual from going back to the same occupation maintained before the truck accident.
Emotional or psychological injuries may be another type of loss in a lawsuit. These types of injuries are more challenging to pursue successful in a lawsuit. As is the case with other types of injuries, current and future emotional or psychological injuries can be claimed in a lawsuit associated with a Truck accident.
