Truck accident lawyers

Motor vehicle accident

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a truck accident – whether you were the driver or passenger, driving for work reasons or another vehicle involved – you may be eligible for a compensation claim. 

The road can be a dangerous place, with accidents and fatalities all too common. If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, Shine Lawyers have experienced compensation lawyers who can help you start the process of claiming for compensation during this difficult time. 

What can I claim for following a truck injury? 

When you make a compensation claim following a truck injury or truck crash, you can generally claim for things like: 

  • medical and hospital expenses 

  • loss of earnings 

  • pain and suffering 

  • help you have needed at home 

A truck injury lawyer can tell you what you might be able to claim once they know a bit more about your situation. 

Truck crash compensation 

The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the circumstances of the accident and the extent of your injuries. As part of your claim, lawyers will also factor in loss of earnings, medical expenses and other pain and suffering that has occurred. 

In most cases a monetary value is placed on the gap between your life path before the injury and your life path since the injury.

How much compensation could I receive following a truck injury?

If you decide to bring forward a claim for compensation, the amount of compensation you can claim can total five or six figures. It is possible that the compensation payout exceeds this and enters seven figures, but this really does depend on the facts of your situation and things such as: 

  • how severe your injuries are 

  • your age 

  • how much you have lost and will lose in wage 

  • how much care you need 

  • how much you have paid out of your own pocket 

Damage to your own truck or the contents within it can generally be claimed through your own truck insurance provider. In some cases, the insurer will agree to pay for some or all of the costs for your ongoing treatment, so that you’re not out of pocket while you’re waiting for the claim to be finalised. 

Shine Lawyers help with all truck accident claims on a No Win No Fee* basis, which means you will only have to pay our legal fees if and when we win your case at the end of the process.

We’re here to make the claims process as simple and stress-free as possible.
