Compensate Your Economic and Non-Economic Damages
Tow truck accidents can result in some pretty hefty damages. There are two separate categories for the types of damages you can sustain, economic and non-economic.
Your economic damages will typically consist of:
- Various legal fees
- Fees for your medical treatment
- Lost wages or reduced earning capacity
- Vehicle repairs or replacements
The reason why these damages are economic is that they have a fixed value attached to them. The amount they’re worth will remain consistent and do not fluctuate due to external circumstances related to your tow truck accident.
You must keep all of your invoices and receipts related to your economic damages safe and organized. Our tow truck accident attorneys will use them to make accurate calculations and ensure that your economic damages don’t get left out of your settlement.
Many people get confused as to what qualifies as non-economic damage. Non-economic damages usually include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma and mental anguish
- Disfigurement or disability
- Wrongful death
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
These damages are non-economic because they don’t have fixed values, unlike economic damages. The value of these damages depends heavily on different aspects of your tow truck accident, such as:
- How extensive these damages are on your life.
- The amount of negative impact you face due to these damages.
- Whether or not these damages are permanent.
- How severe your accident was.
Since there are no fixed values for non-economic damages, our attorneys will utilize various formulas to determine how much compensation you’re entitled to. We also factor in the context of your accident and the history of other cases similar to yours. Our number one goal during negotiations is to get you the most compensation possible for these damages you’ve suffered through.
Our Lawyers Can Help You Receive Punitive Damages
If you file your claim alone, you may not have the chance to receive an additional award for punitive damages. The Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §51-12-5.1 allows for the punishment of the at-fault party if the accident they caused was:
- Extremely negligent
- Caused with fraud
- Caused with intent to harm or kill others
The punishment they face often entails a hefty fine which you can receive as an award. The tow truck lawyers on our team will review your case and see if it fits under the parameters set forth by the Georgia statute. While there’s no firm guarantee, our lawyers will fight hard to see if you can recover punitive damages for your accident.
Will Your Tow Truck Accident Lawyers Charge for Services Upfront?
The tow truck lawyers at John Foy & Associates will never ask for payment upfront. In fact, we don’t accept any payment at all unless we win you compensation for your accident. If we can’t win compensation on your behalf, you pay us nothing for our services.
Many insurance adjusters and representatives from the trucking companies will try to persuade you into settling quickly. They often cite that lawyers aren’t trustworthy and aren’t worth the price. The only reason why they tell you these things is to convince you to settle for less fast.
Don’t settle for less. Retaining a lawyer doesn’t require any financial collateral, and there is no risk when you come in for a free consultation. Having a strong lawyer help you with your case will ensure that you get the proper amount of compensation you need for your damages.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
The state of Georgia allows for two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. If you pass this date, then you lose your ability to file. Don’t let this happen to you. Take advantage of the time you have to begin building your case quickly.
If you don’t know where to even begin, then reach out to our law firm as soon as possible. We will help you get started fast so you can get your settlement smoothly. Two years can fly by you quickly, so act now while there’s still time.
