Have you been injured due to (or lost a loved one because of) a truck accident? A truck driver, trucking company, or other party may owe you compensation. They may cover your medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.
The Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP will assign a truck accident lawyer to your case in Lynbrook. We will pursue every dollar that you deserve. Our team provides client-first service at no upfront cost.
Covered Losses for Truck Accident Victims
Those involved in a truck accident may:
- Suffer significant injuries
- Require long-term medical care
- Lose income
- Be permanently disabled
- Lose their life
Our team will learn about your case. We will identify every single loss that you or a loved one has suffered. We will also identify your likely future losses. Our team will calculate the cost of both your economic and non-economic losses. Both types of losses may entitle you to financial coverage.
Economic Losses from a Truck Accident
Economic losses are those with a direct financial cost. This cost may be fairly straightforward. Such damages may include:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ambulance transportation
- A hospital stay
- Follow-up medical treatment
- Transportation to doctors’ appointments
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Medical equipment for your home and automobile
- Medication costs
- Counseling for psychological trauma
You may not be responsible for your economic losses. Our team will determine what your economic damages are. We will then determine who owes you compensation for them.
Non-Economic Losses from a Truck Accident
Non-economic losses generally include:
- Pain from injuries
- Psychological and emotional trauma
- Lost quality of life
Though these losses do not have a tangible cost, we can determine their monetary value. They cause harm, and we can pursue compensation to cover these damages.

Why Not Handle Your Case on Your Own?
