  • Truck crashes involving jackknifes, overweight or oversize loads, freight shifting, loose flatbed loads, or other risks of operating an 18-wheeler.
  • Accidents involving commercial vehicles from taxis, airport limos, delivery vans, maintenance trucks, or construction vehicles.co
  • Wrongful death litigation related to fatal trucking wrecks.

What Is the Average Settlement for an 18-Wheeler Accident?

After being involved in a collision with a large delivery truck, big-rig, or 18-wheeler, many people understandably want to know how much they can expect to receive in compensation. After all, these accidents tend to result in severe, catastrophic injuries—and massive medical bills. Victims are often left unable to return to work while they obtain treatment and recover; in some cases, victims may suffer disabling injuries and be entirely unable to return to work for the remainder of their lives. It is completely understandable that truck accident victims and their families would wonder how they are going to be able to cope with these financial challenges and what compensation they could expect to recover by filing a truck accident claim.

Unfortunately, there really is no average settlement for 18-wheeler accidents; these cases vary widely depending on the unique factors involved. Some of these factors could include the nature, degree, and severity of your injuries; the current and future expenses associated with your damages; whether or not you were partially at fault for the accident; whether there were other motorists or additional third parties, such as parts manufacturers or maintenance companies, involved; the cause of the accident, and much more. In a given truck accident, a victim could sustain tens of thousands to millions of dollars in damages. Securing a settlement for the full extent of your damages is also not always guaranteed; if the trucking company or other liable party is unwilling to settle, your attorney will need to litigate your case and seek a just verdict at trial.

After speaking with you about the unique factors and circumstances present in your case, our attorneys can provide you with a clearer picture of what to expect. Remember: No reputable attorney or law office can give you a specific settlement amount to expect or guarantee any particular result. However, an accomplished truck accident attorney, like those at Palmisano & Goodman, P.A., can answer your questions and address any concerns you may have. We can guide you through the process and walk you through the next steps.
