What Compensation Can I Receive for My Truck Accident Claim?

Tanker Truck On Highway A Colorado Springs semi-truck accident case falls under the truck accident laws of the State of Colorado. The laws say that you may claim compensation for economic and non-economic damages.

Economic losses are financial losses that can be quantified after you’re the victim of a semi-truck accident. Economic losses may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Ambulance transfer and EMT care
  • Cost of medication and hospital stays
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation fees
  • Property damage
  • Lost income
  • Long-term career path disruption

Non-economic losses are meant to cover all of the ways that you suffer because of a truck accident that can’t be totaled up with a calculator. Physical injuries are often severe, but mental injuries are also common after a truck accident. Non-economic losses may include:

  • Pain and suffering

Do I Have a Semi-Truck Accident Claim?

You have a truck accident claim if you’re hurt because of the negligent actions of a person or company. Being hurt may mean being physically injured, or it could mean sustaining property damage. Negligence means that another party caused or contributed to the accident by failing to exercise the same amount of care that a reasonable person should have used in the same situation.

Here are some examples of truck accident claims:

  • Example One – A driver for a trucking company has been driving for 13 hours straight, with few rest breaks. He falls asleep at the wheel and rear-ends your vehicle. You suffer severe injuries, including broken bones, and your car is totaled.
  • Example Two – Trying to make up for lost time, a truck driver travels 10 miles per hour over the speed limit. You reach a construction zone, and traffic slows down. Because of the driver’s excessive speed, the truck can’t stop and slides into your vehicle. With a traumatic brain injury, you’re forced to spend a week in the hospital.
  • Example Three – When setting out for the day, the semi-truck driver fails to make sure that the goods in the truck are secure. The load tips and it throws the truck off balance. You are involved in a crash as a result. You need surgery because of a dislocated hip, and you can’t return to work for two months.
  • Example Four – A driver has three prior incidents while working for the trucking company: two speeding tickets and a ticket for failing to observe a traffic signal. Despite these previous infractions, the trucking company keeps the driver employed. The driver disobeys a stop sign, and you’re hit, causing injuries.

There are a lot of different ways that a semi-truck accident can occur. The common thread is that one or more parties were not as careful as a reasonable person should have been in those circumstances. We can all agree that truck drivers should follow the rules of the road, and a trucking company should employ only qualified drivers. When a trucking company or a driver makes negligent decisions, they open themselves to legal liability for the harm that results.
