The most dangerous accidents on the road involve large trucks. This is in large part due to their increased weight, and increased required braking distance. In 2013, 16 percent of people killed in truck accidents were in the larger vehicle, while 67 percent of the fatalities involved occupants of the smaller cars and personal trucks. The losses can be intense, but an attorney can help you protect your rights and make more informed decisions regarding your future.
Present Losses and Future Expenses
Calculating the current losses includes looking at medical bills, property damage and lost wages. Estimating what the expected expenses will be moving forward is far more difficult. However, an experienced truck accident lawyer in Los Angeles will know how to calculate the estimated future expenses so that you can seek an appropriate level of compensation or coverage for the future.
