Medical Expenses due to an auto vs. truck injury
Medical expenses and wage loss benefits due to an auto accident injury are considered by your insurance as "no fault," and each insured person looks to his/her own automobile policy for benefits, regardless as to the cause of the accident or whether the insured was personally responsible for his injuries. Regarding pain, suffering, and other non-economic loss, benefits are "fault" based, and the person who acted negligently and caused another’s injuries is responsible for compensating the injured person for his/her damages.
Trucking accidents are complex and even if the defendant driver has insurance coverage, it may not be adequate to cover all the injuries sustained in the car crash.
