A t-bone accident with a truck can leave you with devastating injuries and losses. Our T-bone truck accident lawyers serving Marion can help you seek recovery through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
During a call to our office, you can also ask us about how much compensation you could seek, when you should file a claim or lawsuit, and how we may be able to represent your case.
What Could a T-bone Truck Accident Case Be Worth?
If a negligent truck driver caused your accident and injuries, you could hold them responsible for the losses you sustained as a consequence of the accident. You do not have to pay for your costs out-of-pocket.
The value of a T-bone truck accident case will vary based on a variety of factors, including:
- The severity of your injuries
- To what extent your life and work were affected by your injuries
- How much your medical care cost you and may continue to cost you
Typically, the more the accident and your injuries have affected you—both physically and financially—the more we will be able to demand through a claim or lawsuit.
However, the full extent of your losses may be hard to calculate on your own. We recommend that you speak with someone from our team in order to understand the actual value of your case.
Forms of Damages You Could Seek
We will help to ensure that you don’t leave any possible compensation on the table. We will include in your case value the cost of your past and future losses. Your damages could also reflect forms of losses that are more intangible.
Potentially recoverable damages include:
- Lost income, including money you couldn’t earn in the past and earnings that could be reduced due to a decreased earning capacity
- Medical expenses, reflecting everything from the first emergency room visit to surgeries to rehabilitative care costs
- Pain and suffering, reflecting the physical pain you’ve experienced due to your injuries
- Mental anguish, which can compensate you for your psychological hardships

Some reasons why you may face challenges during the claims process include:

- They may try to use any recorded statement that you make to suggest your injuries are not severe
- Liability in your case could be complicated, meaning that the person who hit you may not be the person who is responsible for paying you
- You may have to take your case to court
When you work with our T-bone truck accident lawyers, we can ensure that you don’t have to worry about these issues.

Should You File a Claim or Lawsuit?
We will help you determine when it may make sense to go to court. However, we will typically begin your case with an insurance claim.
From there, your case could proceed in a few different ways. For instance, you could receive:
- A satisfactory settlement offer after we negotiate with an insurer
- An insufficient settlement offer after extended negotiations—and then, we may have to go to court
When if and we have to file a lawsuit, your case may be resolved either through:
- A fair insurance settlement offer after we begin the process of filing suit
- Court-awarded damages after we take your case to trial
Beginning with an insurance claim is often the most efficient way to seek fair compensation for you, as you can receive your settlement more quickly through a claim. However, we are prepared to go to trial if necessary.
Time Limits on Filing a Lawsuit in Ohio
According to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §2305.10, with some exceptions, you have two years to file a lawsuit. This means that you will not be able to seek damages in court if we haven’t filed suit within this timeframe.
For this reason, we advise that you contact us as soon as you can. If you give us more time to build your case, you can help ensure that your legal rights are protected and that we have time to gather all the evidence that can help your case.
