Despite being a safe driver and obeying the rules of the road, you’ve been injured in a car accident. You may be wondering what your options are now. Hopefully you have already contacted the police in the immediate aftermath of the collision, traded insurance information with the other driver and took pictures of the damage for insurance purposes.
Depending on your injuries, and who is at fault for the accident, you may be able to file a claim for damages against the other driver under several pretenses such as:
- Your injuries made you unable to work and collect a paycheck;
- Your injuries affected your ability to perform your work responsibilities;
- Your injuries necessitated a long hospital stay, resulting in costly medical expenses, such as surgery or outpatient treatments that you cannot afford;
- The accident caused mental trauma that required counseling or other psychological services that you cannot afford;
- You suffered injuries that caused you severe pain and suffering or permanent scarring
- The driver who caused the collision was obviously impaired under the influence of drugs, alcohol or other substances or was otherwise distracted from the road, perhaps by a phone
