Question:How much is my truck accident claim worth?
When clients come in to see us over a commercial truck wreck, one of the first things they want to know is the value of their case. That’s not something that can be determined until the full extent of your injuries is known, which requires you to complete your medical treatment and find out if you are able to make a full recovery. A case where you fully recover is not worth the same as a case where you’re not going to recover. Those are things that have to be looked at to determine the value of a case. When you’re talking about a commercial truck wreck, these are often cases that have substantial injuries.Another thing that generally makes commercial truck cases more valuable than individual car wrecks is the way that Georgia law is applied to them, in that juries are typically more willing to pay more for personal injuries when it is a corporation on the defense side. They typically think that corporations have more money and, therefore, it won’t be as big of an impact to them as it would be to a sole individual. Those cases have more value to a jury, and they have more value when you’re talking settlement with insurance companies as well. Another thing to keep in mind, in terms of personal injuries arising from commercial truck wrecks, is that, for the most part, the value of your injury is going to be capped at the amount of liability insurance that the defendant has. When you have a commercial vehicle that has caused the wreck, there’s generally going to be a lot more insurance involved. These are all types of things that can greatly affect the value of your case, as well as the extent of your injury.
