Truck Accident Lawyers for Medical Bill Compensation

Have you or a loved one been injured in a trucking accident that wasn’t your fault? You deserve justice and may be entitled to compensation. The North Carolina truck accident lawyers at DeMayo Law Offices, LLP are here to fight for you. We have experience handling trucking accident personal injury cases and have helped people receive compensation for their injuries.

An empty semi-truck weighs roughly 35,000 pounds. A semi-truck with a fully-loaded trailer attached can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. These are massive vehicles, and because of that, they can cause great damage and bodily harm to others when involved in an accident. Truck drivers must operate trucks responsibly and with caution. Trucking companies have a duty to maintain safe trucks and follow all commercial vehicle laws and regulations.

If you’ve been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company, contact DeMayo Law Offices, LLP at (877) 333-1000 or contact us online today for a free consultation.

Common Injuries In a Trucking Accident

Accidents involving trucks can cause devastating injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Some injuries can be life-altering or even fatal. The following injuries are common in trucking accidents and can range from mild to severe to fatal:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Muscle sprains
  • Cuts, contusions, and bruises
  • Burns
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones and limbs
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety

These injuries can have a traumatic impact on your life, and treating them can come with exorbitant price tags.

Expensive Medical Costs

Healthcare is incredibly expensive, even with medical insurance. Day-to-day, routine wellness checks can burn a hole in your pocket. Prescription drug prices can mean the difference between whether you can buy the medication you need or not.

When you’re involved in a trucking accident, your injuries may be severe. Most likely, you’ll require immediate medical attention and a trip to and possible stay in a hospital emergency room. Emergency room visits are expensive. Those costs sky-rocket if you need to stay in the hospital to recover for days or weeks.

Even after you’ve received the immediate medical treatment you need, you may need extended treatment depending on the type and severity of your injuries. You may be prescribed drugs to help you recover, or your life may quite literally depend on a prescription drug. You may need to be moved to an inpatient rehabilitation center. The expense associated with this can be just as costly as an extended hospital stay or more. Maybe you need frequent physical therapy. If your injuries are severe enough that you are now disabled and need modifications made to your home, this is an added expense that may not be covered by medical insurance — if you have it.

Medical insurance may not cover any of these costs. And even if they cover some, the remaining medical expenses may still be substantial.

Being involved in an accident with a commercial truck is unexpected and completely unplanned. You likely don’t have the financial ability to pay these mounting medical bills. You can be compensated for all these expenses since you are incurring them through no fault of your own.

Compensation for Medical Costs

You deserve to be compensated for the medical costs associated with your trucking accident injuries when someone else was completely at fault for the crash.

In North Carolina, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party.

The total amount you may be awarded may consist of several different types of “damages,” which is a term for compensation for your accident-related losses. Reimbursement and compensation for the medical costs you have and/or will incur are covered by economic damages. Economic damages also cover income you’ve lost and may continue to lose because you’ve been unable to work while you heal. You can be compensated for your future lost income, should your accident-related injuries prevent you from returning to your previous line of work.

You may also be awarded noneconomic damages. These damages compensate you for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish you’ve dealt with as a result of your injuries from the trucking accident.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Trucking in the United States is a nearly $800 billion industry. Most of the country’s goods are moved by trucks. The laws and regulations that govern the trucking industry are large in number and complexity. When a truck is involved in an accident, there’s the potential for a lot of money to be on the line.
