Commercial trucks are large vehicles that often are carrying heavy loads. If a collision occurs between a truck and another motor vehicle, the results can be devastating. The occupants of the smaller vehicle can suffer severe financial, physical, and emotional losses.

If you or a loved one suffered harm in a wreck with a commercial vehicle, you might benefit from speaking with an experienced truck crash attorney. Well-practiced legal counsel could determine the available recoverable damages in Gwinnett County truck accidents.

What Damages are Available After a Truck Wreck?

Due to the size and weight of commercial trucks, if they collide with passenger vehicles, cyclists, or pedestrians, the results can be catastrophic. Therefore, the recoverable losses are often substantial.

If a person is involved in a truck accident that was caused by someone else, they can seek restitution in the form of economic and non-economic damages. All the damages listed under Georgia law that are recoverable and relevant to the individual’s truck crash case could be sought after by an attorney.

Economic Losses

Economic damages are monetary losses. These losses are easily measurable and can present themselves in several forms, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Prescription payments
  • Lost wages or work capacity
  • Physical therapy
  • MRIs
  • Orthopedic evaluation
  • Neurological assessment
  • Emergency room treatment
  • Urgent care treatment
  • Chiropractic care

An injured claimant should keep any billing statements to use as evidence of their financial losses.

Non-Economic Damages

Truck accidents can cause traumatic injuries resulting in a lot of pain and suffering. Although it can be challenging to quantify monetarily, an attorney in Gwinnett County could fight for compensation for the physical and emotional losses suffered in a semi crash.

Along with the pain and suffering, there is often mental or emotional anguish, PTSD, as well as a loss of consortium. Someone may no longer be able to do things as before or pursue their interests.

Punitive Damages in Gwinnett County Truck Crashes

Punitive damages are meant to punish the trucking company for behavior that is reckless or egregious. If a negligent driver causes a collision, a trucking company may be liable if it knew the driver had a drinking problem or had many previous violations. An attorney could ask a jury to award punitive damages to punish the Peachtree Corners trucking company for their behavior.

Other behaviors that could give grounds for punitive damages include:

  • Hiring a driver with substance abuse issues
  • Violating Federal Motor Carrier Safety Guidelines
  • Driving while intoxicated or fatigued
  • Texting while operating a commercial vehicle.
