Seeking damages after a truck accident injury

The affects of a motor vehicle accident can be felt over a long period of time, affecting the injured and their family members in ways they might not have expected. This tends to be true especially for truck accidents, simply because the size and weight of commercial trucks means that injuries in truck accidents are often extremely serious.

Many people who are injured in a trucking accident will require lifelong care for injuries suffered in the crash. Whether this manifests in physical therapy, or more serious and attentive care due to disability, the impact can be astounding. There are several categories of injuries and losses one can claim when wrongly injured in a truck accident injury.

This would be in a situation in which the trucking company or other related third-party was negligent in causing a person’s injuries in a truck accident. Depending on the severity of the injury, there are damages for the immediate costs and also the long-term challenges a person may face due to permanent disability and loss of quality of life. An unexpected injury, like one suffered in a truck accident, can leave a person unable to work or to enjoy the things they once did. Lost earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life, future medical expenses and even disfigurement are common issues which an injured person will allege was caused by a truck accident negligence.

It’s sad to think that a person’s life can take such an unexpected and unwanted turn in the blink of an eye. It just doesn’t seem right that a person who suffers such a blow should be left to deal with the issue on their own. That’s why seeking damages due to another’s negligence is often appropriate. It’s often worth a person’s time and effort to determine if negligence was a factor in causing their truck accident injury.

Holding Wrongdoers Responsible

Malone Law is known for its willingness to take cases to trial when defendants refuse to accept responsibility for their actions — particularly in situations where death or devastating injuries have been caused by careless commercial trucking companies, sloppy health care and manufacturers of defective products. Tommy secured one of the first verdicts over a million dollars in Georgia history — a $1.2 million verdict in a 1982 jury trial against a trucking company involving the needless death of a 7-year-old girl. Throughout his career, Tommy continued achieving record verdicts, including a recent verdict of over $49 million against two careless trucking companies for causing a severe brain injury to a pre-med college student.

Likewise, Adam has continued this tradition and has broken his father's record verdict in their hometown of Albany with a $24.5 million verdict in a medical negligence case for a 14-year-old football player.
