There are many types of car accident injuries that victims suffer. These injuries range in severity, and heavily influence the value of a car accident claim. More severe injuries can increase a victim’s losses, and have a long-term effect on his or her life. It’s important to be aware of the impact of car accident injuries and what kind of compensation those injuries qualify for when starting a claim. 
Car accident settlement amounts depend on factors such as the insurance coverage held by the motorists involved, liability, and the severity of the injuries and property damage. However, other factors may also play a role. For example, punitive damages may be calculated in a settlement if the other party was acting recklessly and in conscious disregard to others.

Truck Accidents and the Tired Trucker

Posted By:

Your Chicago and Cicero Truck Accident Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe are pleased to report that  federal jury has awarded $3 million to the family of a wrongful death victim of a truck accident.  The case involved a collision between two commercial tractor-trailer. Defendant trucker was merging her truck onto the interstate from the emergency lane when she failed to yield the right of way. This caused the victim, who was driving a tandem tractor-trailer to the hit the back of defendant’s truck. Defendant stated that she had pulled off the road to check a light in her cab, then accelerated down the emergency lane to re-enter the right lane. She claimed that she saw the victim’s headlights but miscalculated the distance of victim’s truck. It was determined by the jury that defendant had been on duty for approximately 19 hours prior to the truck accident in violation of the 14-hour “Hour of Service” Rule of the Florida Motor Carrier Safety Act.
