You can sue for reimbursement of medical expenses related to your injuries, including hospital bills, surgery costs, and rehabilitation expenses.

Lost wages

If your injuries prevent you from working, you can sue for lost wages and lost earning capacity. This includes past and future lost wages.

You can sue for pain and suffering related to your injuries, including physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish.

Property damage

You can sue for the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle or other property damaged in the crash.

Punitive damages

In some cases, you may be able to sue for punitive damages, which are intended to punish the at-fault party for their reckless or egregious behavior.

Wrongful death

If a loved one has died in a truck crash, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost income, and loss of companionship.
