How Much is My Truck/Train Accident Worth?

  • Medical costs accumulated as a result of the accident, including hospital bills, ambulance services, follow-up appointments, rehab, and post-hospital medications and equipment needed.
  • Any property damages if applicable.
  • Pain and suffering as a result of the accident.
  • Any potential earnings you may have lost due to missing work for your injuries.
