Truck Accidents Are Deadly
According to the most recent data available, in 2019, there were 4,119 truck accident fatalities throughout the U.S. More than 60% of those fatalities were occupants of passenger vehicles. Trucks are often several times heavier and larger than the average car on the road, so truck drivers have an essential duty of care to provide to others.
You don’t have to go through the aftermath of your truck accident alone. Our seasoned truck accident lawyers are available to help. We don’t accept payment unless we can win you compensation.

How Does a Truck Accident Lawyer Help Me?
Our truck accident lawyers will help you fight for a fair settlement against the truck driver, the trucking company, and the insurance companies. Don’t expect a settlement to get reached easily. Most insurance companies don’t want to pay out any settlement if they have to. They will often try to get you to settle way below the actual value of your damages.
Various tactics, such as stalling negotiations or promising you a quick settlement, often get used to trick you into thinking that a lawyer isn’t necessary when pursuing compensation. The truth is that insurance companies are only interested in protecting their bottom line. The goal is to get you to settle fast so that they can get away with paying you the bare minimum.
We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. Our client testimonials speak of the professional excellence we strive to uphold for every person we represent. You can trust in the attorneys at John Foy & Associates to always put your interests before anything else.

Compensating for Damages
You can receive compensation for several types of damages. So long as the damages you sustained are directly related to your truck accident, our lawyers will factor them into your settlement.
Non-economic damages refer to damages that do not have a fixed monetary value. In other words, their values are highly dependent on:
- Their severity and impact on your life.
- The extent of the damage.
- The circumstances and context surrounding your specific case.
For example, some non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental anguish
- Disfigurement and disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Wrongful death
We use several formulas to calculate how much each of your non-economic damages should get valued. In addition, we take into account the precedence of cases similar to yours and other variables.
A truck accident can leave you in terrible physical condition. This may prevent you from working and earning a proper living to support yourself or your loved ones. Whatever wages you missed out on due to your injuries can get properly compensated by the at-fault truck driver or trucking company.
We will add up all the days you missed work and any other factors pertaining to your job. Whatever wages you’ve lost, we will help you recover them.
Vehicle Repair and Replacement
Truck accidents often also leave the passenger vehicles involved in them totaled or in desperate need of repairs. Cars are an essential part of everyday life. People use them to run errands, go to work, and do a host of other things.
If you need to repair or replace your car, we can definitely get you compensation for any purchases or repairs you’ve made.
