A commercial vehicle accident often involves a large truck, including vehicles such as semi-trucks and delivery vans. When big, heavy vehicles collide at high speeds with smaller vehicles such as sedans or even motorcycles, the results can be devastating. Individuals who are injured in commercial vehicle accidents or families who have lost loved ones in such incidents have a right to seek compensation for their losses.
Every case is different, but it is possible to receive substantial recovery for losses. Financial recovery can help families pay medical bills, cover living expenses while someone is unable to work due to injury or move forward with life after a period of grief.
One example of a recovery for a California accident victim involved a $650,000 payout. The accident involved a collision with a newspaper truck. The victim involved suffered mild brain injury. In another case, a 40-year-old who was riding a bike was hit by a truck. That case resulted in recover of $400,000.
Recovery can range from a few thousand to millions of dollars. In a case involving a large truck hitting the back of a smaller truck, a 28-year-old man recovered $1 million. That case involved settlements from a variety of defendants after plaintiffs illustrated the man’s traumatic brain injury.
Not every case will have the same results, so it’s important to seek understanding about all options before filing a personal injury case. Professional assistance can help plaintiffs figure out who to name as defendants in a case as well as navigate the legal system and settlement discussions for an increased change of success.
