Considering the Worth of Your Case

"My husband was in a bad motorcycle accident caused by a dump truck. He suffered a broken rib, a punctured lung, and internal bleeding. The trucking company seems to be making us a low monetary offer. How can I tell what this case should be worth?"

Internal injuries are serious and, unfortunately, are quite common in motorcycle accidents in Georgia. When the force of a collision causes a rib to break and puncture a lung, it can lead to internal bleeding, severe pain, and difficulty breathing. We are glad to hear that your husband is getting treatment and that these injuries were caught in time. While we cannot give you a specific dollar amount without discussing the accident details with you or reviewing his medical charts, which would indicate his prognosis, we can say that these types of cases are often very costly.

If the truck driver caused the accident, the trucking company should be paying for all of your husband’s medical bills, including, but not limited to:

  • Emergency room visit
  • Hospital bills
  • Surgery
  • Medication costs
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost income due to missing work
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

Because trucking companies are powerful, they know how to play the game. They will often try to seem concerned and offer you an amount of money very soon after the accident so that you do not know how much the entire costs will be. This way, they can get away with paying less money. You are smart for waiting and analyzing their offer.
