Following a truck crash, you may be eligible to recover compensatory damages for:
- medical bills,
- property damage,
- lost wages,
- lost earning capacity and/or
- pain and suffering
Should the case reach trial, the court may award punitive damages as well.7
If your lawsuit is against a big company such as Wal-Mart Transportation – which carries high insurance limits – it may be easier to get a settlement than if your lawsuit is against a small company or individual merely renting the truck and carrying Nevada’s minimum liability insurance requirements (25/50/20).
