Several factors can affect the value of a truck accident case.

The parties who bear liability for the accident and their financial resources (such as insurance) will affect the value of the case. It may not matter how much the damages are if the liable party does not have the money to compensate the injured party.

The extent of the plaintiff’s injuries will also control the value of the case. If a person suffers serious injuries, he or she will likely require expensive medical treatment. The injured party may need to miss considerable time from work. The injured may never be able to return to work. Serious injuries also mean that a plaintiff has had to endure pain and suffering and lost quality of life. Compensation may include those damages.
