Serious or fatal truck accidents often leave victims or the victims’ families with significant  financial losses caused by the accident. A Georgia  truck accident claim will seek compensation for various types of economic losses. The goal is to return the victim (or a deceased victim’s family) to where they were before the accident occurred. 

To do this, a Peachtree City personal injury attorney will help build a solid truck accident claim to recover various types of economic losses. In personal injury cases that involve a severe injury caused by negligence, the court will look at many factors to determine how much financial compensation the victim deserves. One significant factor the court will evaluate is the cost of medical expenses, treatment and rehabilitation. 

Compensatory damages for medical costs include  the expenses of past and future care: 
  • ambulance/emergency room  treatment;
  • hospital bills;
  • doctor visits;
  • physical therapy;
  • prescription medication; and
  • medical devices. 
The court will look at the victim’s life expectancy, combined with their required medical care, to figure out how compensation is owed. A truck accident claim that seeks compensation for medical expenses should include medical records and bills that clearly demonstrate the nature and severity of your  injury.  This is why it's imperative that you seek medical treatment and follow all of your doctor's orders.
