How is the severity of my injuries from the truck accident taken into account in my claim?


The severity of your injuries from the truck accident is a critical factor that directly impacts your claim for compensation. Severe injuries can require weeks, months, or even years of ongoing medical treatment. If you suffered a permanent disability, you may require medical care for your condition for the rest of your life. Additionally, life-changing injuries can prevent you from returning to work or force you to change your career. Life-altering injuries can also impact quality of life, enjoyment of life, and cause significant pain and suffering.


How Is the Severity of An Accident Victim’s Injuries Assessed?

When assessing the severity of your injuries, several key aspects are taken into account:

Medical documentation. The extent of your injuries is usually documented through medical records, reports, and assessments from healthcare professionals who have treated you. This documentation includes details about the type of injuries, their severity, treatment plans, and any potential long-term effects or disabilities resulting from the accident.

Medical bills. The total medical expenses incurred due to your injuries play a significant role in your claim. This includes hospital bills, doctor's fees, medication costs, rehabilitation expenses, and any other necessary medical treatments related to the accident.

Impact on daily life. The severity of your injuries will affect your ability to carry out daily activities, work, and maintain your quality of life. If your injuries result in temporary or permanent disabilities, the claim will consider how they have impacted your ability to function physically and mentally.

Pain and suffering. The physical and emotional pain and suffering you endured due to your injuries will be considered when calculating your claim. This includes both the immediate pain experienced after the accident and any ongoing discomfort caused by your injuries.

Lost wages and earning capacity. If your injuries have caused you to miss work or have impacted your ability to earn a living in the future, the potential loss of income will be taken into account.

Long-term consequences. Injuries from a truck accident may have lasting effects, such as permanent disabilities, scarring, or chronic pain. These long-term consequences are factored into the claim to ensure fair compensation for ongoing challenges and limitations.

Emotional distress. Severe injuries can lead to emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The psychological impact of the accident is considered as part of the claim.


How Can I Increase My Chances of a Successful Claim?

To ensure you receive the appropriate compensation for your injuries, it's essential to gather all relevant medical records, documentation, and evidence supporting your claim. Consulting with an experienced truck accident lawyer that specializes in commercial vehicle accident claims is crucial, as they can help you build a strong case, negotiate with insurance companies, and ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process. They will work to demonstrate the full extent of your injuries and the impact they have had on your life to pursue fair and just compensation.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
