If you were hurt in a car accident or big truck accident, you’re probably wondering, “How much is my case really worth?”
There’s no easy answer, but the thing that mostly decides exactly what your case is worth are any damages. Damages can include:
- What your injuries have cost you (medical care, surgeries, etc.)
- Physical damage to your vehicle
- Pain and suffering
- Any laws broken by the person you’re suing.
In a car or big truck accident, damages are paid to you by the individual who caused your accident – or the company they work for if they were driving a company vehicle.
Your damage award can be agreed upon after a settlement between your personal injury attorney and the person responsible and/or their insurance companies. If no settlement can be reached, damages can be awarded to you during a jury trial.
