Emotional Distress from a Truck Accident

We then explain how we recommend they proceed, and how we can help guide them through their claim to achieve the best possible result.

Relieving Your Stress After a Truck Accident

When an individual comes to us after being injured in a truck accident, they are invariably stressed. They are dealing with several other damages, such as loss of income due to recovery time, pain and suffering, new medical bills, possibly long term health challenges, the list goes on.

The first goal of the truck accident lawyers at Paukert & Troppmann is to listen to their story and be a safe place to get their questions answered. We need to hear how the accident occurred, how the accident has affected them physically, mentally, and emotionally. Just making this start lowers the stress of our clients as they feel heard and seen and supported.

Having the right attorney handling your claim is essential on so many levels. Making sure you are comfortable communicating with that attorney is the first step. We encourage you to meet with several attorneys in person to have your questions answered during free consultations. This is the best way to ensure you find a lawyer you are comfortable with who is a good match for your claim.

Truck Accident Case Timeline

Your truck accident claim timeline is going to depend on a couple of factors, and they are both going to be specific to your claim. As a result, it’s tough to predict how long your claim’s timeline will be.

The first factor is your case timeline is going to be how fast you can recover back to maximum medical improvement. This is necessary for your attorney to effectively assess your damages. It means recovering completely, or as far back to your pre-accident level of health as possible.

Recovery times vary depending on the pre-accident level of health of the injured person and the severity of their injuries. Once you reach maximum medical improvement, your attorney will know whether your injuries will completely heal or if you’re going to face long term health struggles.

It’s critical to get to the point in your recovery where this question can be answered, because your attorney must request more in compensation when the damages are more severe. You don’t want to settle too soon, only to find out you asked for far too less in compensation.

Your recovery journey will also reveal financial damages, such as loss of income. Though you may want to get back to work as quickly as possible, that too, will depend on your recovery. You may need multiple doctors’ appointments, appointments with specialties, surgeons, therapists, etc.

As soon as we can ascertain that an individual is back to full medical improvement, we evaluate the injuries and the damages and the wage loss piece. We then communicate with an insurance company to see if we can come to a full, fair, and final settlement. If we can, things can be wrapped up at that point.

If the insurance company is not open to a settlement in good faith, however, we proceed down the path of trial. Going to trial extends the timeline of your claim, but if it’s necessary to bring you fair compensation, that’s where we’ll go.

When addressing the issue of timeline in a truck accident case, the important thing to come away with is the importance of retaining an experienced personal injury trial attorney with experience winning truck accident claims. When you have a skilled attorney handling your claim, they’re going to keep it moving with maximum efficiency while working toward the best outcome possible.

Truck Accident Claim Value

The value of a truck accident claim is going to vary, depending on the facts of the accident and the damages suffered because of that accident.

For instance, loss of wages will factor into your economic damages. The amount lost wages affect your claim’s value will depend on whether you are out of work for a specific period of time or cannot return to work at all.

Damages that relate to the financial impact of your injuries are called “economic damages. When you struggle financially because of the accident, these damages are going to impact your entire family.

Non-economic damages include the less concrete but just as crucial negative impacts of the accident, such as mental anguish, pain and suffering, and the loss of companionship of a spouse.

In addition to your damages, your claim’s value will hinge on facts, evidence, and testimony gathered in the investigation of your accident. It’s critical to hire an experienced lawyer, as they will seek the evidence necessary to connect the actions of those responsible for the accident with the injuries you suffered as a result.
