Why Choose Our Carlsbad NM Trucking Accident Lawyers?
When trying to get compensation from a big trucking company after an accident, you need a legal team on your side. The trucking company will have legal experts that will do everything they can to discredit and deny your claim and the only way to get the compensation you deserve is to have someone on your side who knows how to fight back.
Our car accident attorneys will work with you from the beginning helping you to collect evidence, gather the medical records, bills, and receipts you need to prove the financial losses and injuries you have suffered, and prepare everything to take to court if necessary. We can advise you on what compensation you may be eligible for and how to go about gathering the right information, even getting expert testimony to prove your claim.
We also know what the trucking company will try to do to deny you compensation so we will work with you to determine any at-fault parties, determine what the cause of the accident was, including any negligence, or errant behavior on the part of the driver, and help to reconstruct the accident including getting witness testimony. By taking these steps we can maximize your potential for compensation.
Types of Compensation You May Be Eligible For
There are 3 types of compensation that may be awarded in your accident case.
Economic Damages – These are the financial losses that you may suffer from the accident. These include potentially lost wages and ability to earn, medical bills, travel expenses, legal expenses, and property damage
Non-Economic Damages – Non-economic damages refer to those non-financial losses that a person suffers as a result of the accident. These include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and the loss of close relationships.
Punitive Damages – Unlike other types of compensation, punitive damages are awarded to the victim as a direct punishment to the at-fault party as a means to prevent further negligent behavior. In cases where a person is seen as malicious or grossly negligent, the court may award punitive damages on top of other compensation.
