The compensation you can receive from a successful case can be used to pay for the following:
This list is not a complete list of what you can be compensated for. Please contact the team of Landay and Roberts for a free case evaluation, where we can help determine what restitution you want to seek and what the next steps are in the investigation into your accident.
Here in California, your own car insurance will pay for your medical bills at first, following the car crash. If you use all of your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, then the time may come that you seek compensation from the other driver’s insurance.
Typically, PIP coverage is around $10,000 at minimum, to cover yourself, your children, and any passengers. However, this most likely won’t be enough if there are serious injuries involved, such as head trauma. In this situation, a lawsuit against the other driver can bring additional compensation for your medical needs.
Absolutely; much as a serious injury from an accident can seek compensation, so too can you seek restitution for the loss of a loved one. This may qualify as a wrongful death lawsuit, for which the restitution gained can pay for medical bills, lost income, funeral expenses, property damage, and other bereavements that come with the loss of a spouse. The court may also award you additional damages, if the other driver’s actions were found to be negligent or reckless.

It will depend on the investigation into who was at fault. Trucking accident cases can be tricky, as more than one person can be held responsible for the accident. If you were not at fault, the fault may lie with the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, the maintenance crew, warehouse company, or another party. Any one of those parties could possibly be held liable for the outcome of the accident. In either case, if you’ve been injured as a result of your trucking accident, it’s important to have legal representation like Landay Roberts LLP offers to safeguard your rights and fight for proper compensation for medical needs. You can read more about what to do in a trucking accident on our dedicated page.
You may still file a claim, but may not receive the full amount of compensation that you anticipated. In a case like this, known as having “comparative fault”, both sides of the accident are considered, and a court will determine who is responsible for what, even if it’s 50/50. The percentages of responsibility may change: for example, the court may only find that you are 30% responsible, which will determine the amount of compensation you receive.
It’s absolutely vital that you seek an experienced trucking accident attorney to represent you, especially if you have been injured. Trucking accidents involve many parties, who will attempt to shift entire responsibility of the accident onto you. Landay and Roberts will defend your rights, act as your legal representation, and get the compensation you need for your recovery.
