Below, we have sought to answer the questions that we are most commonly asked by our clients involved in these types of accidents.

I was injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, what can I be compensated for?

You can expect to be compensated for the injuries you have sustained as well as how it will affect you in the future. Medical bills both present and future from the accident, lost wages, and pain and suffering are three of the main areas that you can expect compensation for. If the injuries you sustained in the accident affect your ability to work then you can also be recompensed for your lost earning capacity. The damage sustained to your vehicle may also be part of your claim. You have the right to see it either repaired or be compensated for its value if it is totaled.

I was partially at fault for the accident., can I still be compensated?

If the other party caused the accident you can be compensated even if you were partially at fault. The amount you receive may be less than if you had no fault but you can still be compensated. The other party will need to be party will need to be deemed responsible for more than 50% of the accident, though. They must be identified as the mostly at fault party.

Why do commercial truck accidents tend to cause more injuries than accidents that only involve passenger vehicles?

The typical car weighs around 3,000lbs. A fully loaded commercial truck can weigh around 75,00lbs and in some cases even more. The greater weight causes the damage to the car involved in the accident to be greater. The greater the damage the more likely the passenger is to be injured. The sheer volume of a commercial truck makes it far more dangerous than a typical car. The serious nature of these accidents makes it even more important that you hire a qualified accident attorney in Eugene.
