18 wheeler accidents can be complex when it comes to estimating a settlement amount.

Each trucking company has an insurance company in which they will defend their drivers and themselves by utilizing strategies to reduce compensation. It’s impossible to pinpoint the exact settlement amount you’ll receive. Every accident is different with a multitude different factors to determine how much a victim may be owed, including:

  • Severity of injuries
  • Lost wages
  • Compensation for any lost earning potential resulting from the accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses

However, by looking at high level numbers, like nationwide averages, and then looking at some actual 18 wheeler settlement amounts in claims similar to yours, you should be able to get into a reasonable close range.

Here are some examples of 18-wheeler settlements:

  • 18-wheeler accident settlement of $183,215 after a semi-truck hit him leaving him with neck, back and head injuries.
