How Much is My Semi Truck Accident Claim Worth?

In a semi truck accident, it’s possible that one or more “commercial policies” exist for the defendant and the trucking company. Insurance policies that insure semi trucks are mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and they don’t follow the same rules as policies required for passenger vehicles.

What determines the value of your semi truck accident claim?

There are several factors to take into consideration when coming up with a total value for your semi-truck case, including some of the following:

  • Total amount of your medical bills
  • Any lost wages
  • The severity of your injuries
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering

 

And while your accident may include more or less factors than those listed here, it’s important to realize that no one can give you an actual dollar amount until your claim is fully investigated.
