How much is my truck accident injury case worth?

How much is my truck accident injury case worth?Aside from the kind and nature of recovery, many of our Illinois clients like to know exactly how much compensation they can expect from their trucking accident case.  To that, the best we can do is provide an outline of where to look and generally what to expect from certain categories of damages.

For economic damages (the out-of-pocket expenses you suffer from a truck crash), you can generally expect to receive amounts ona 1-1 ratio of what you incurred.  For more intangible losses, such as non-economic or punitive damages, plaintiffs have received sums as high as two or three times their economic cost amounts. Additionally, past is prologue, so when we try and paint a picture of what our current clients might receive, we generally illustrate to them what others have gotten from jury awards or settlement amounts.  Here is a breakdown of Illinois plaintiff recoveries in different types of trucking cases.
