Auto and Truck Accidents

Auto and Truck Accident Practices

Even if you are a skilled driver, chances are you’ll be involved in a car accident at least once in your adult life. Unfortunately, automobile accidents are one of the most common types of fatal accidents.


Car accidents occur for any number of reasons, including, driving while impaired, reckless driving, and distracted driving to name a few. Speeding is often a factor as well. Fatalities are, of course, the worst-case scenario.


Sometimes, even a minor car crash can impact your life in a significant way. If you suffer an injury, you’ll incur expensive medical treatments, loss of time on the job, and physical pain. In short, a car accident can impact your life in a way you had not expected.

What Are the Types of Damages for Car Accident Claims?


Johnson & Lapham aggressively pursues any compensatory damages to which you may be entitled. We also seek any punitive damages that may apply to your situation.


Two forms of Compensatory Damages


Compensatory damages come in two forms.


The first is economic damages, which cover all monetary damages, including lost wages and medical expenses.


The other type is non-economic damages, which include those damages that you can’t easily measure. Examples are mental anguish, pain and suffering, inconvenience and life changes.


Punitive Damages are a different matter.


Punitive damages are meant to discourage defendants and others from similar behavior. For example, you see punitive damages in DUI accident cases.


Should I File a Personal Injury Claim?


If you have suffered an injury that someone else caused, you may be facing financial hardships that should not be your responsibility. Accidents lead to lost wages and mounting medical bills.


The physical and financial impacts can be devastating, which is why personal injury lawyers are needed. We assist our clients in holding the negligent party accountable for your injury and get you the compensation you deserve.


What Is My Case Worth?


A personal injury attorney helps determine what your case is worth.


The value depends on the circumstances surrounding your accident, insurance coverage limits, and the degree of your injury among other factors.


Those factors include past and future medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, emotional stress, and pain and suffering.
