A personal injury attorney can help the auto
accident recovery process by providing traffic accident victims
with information regarding the practical and legal aspects
of personal injury law and auto accident claims.
In many states, auto accident victims who have
suffered personal injury may be entitled to recover damages
for pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, permanent
disfigurement, dismemberment, wrongful death, loss of opportunity
to enjoy life, interference with marital and/or parental relationships,
and other types of general damage. Many states also allow
for recovery of "special" damages, such as past,
present and future medical bills, wage loss, loss of earnings
potential and other out-of-pocket expenses. Some states also
require that certain "no-fault" benefits be paid
following a traffic accident. This type of benefit may serve
to pay a portion of lost wages and medical bills.
If you have been injured in a traffic
accident it may be important to contact a personal
injury attorney who can help you protect your legal rights.
Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which
you must commence a lawsuit.
- What compensation may be needed after an auto accident?
- What sources of compensation can be pursued after an auto
- What is the difference between "no-fault" and
- What are "comparative negligence", "proximate
cause", and "intervening causes"?
- What should I know about auto insurance?
- What happens if I am sued for causing an auto accident
and I don't have insurance?
- I loaned my car to a friend who was involved in an accident.
Am I liable if my friend was at fault?
- If I get injured in a car accident but I do not have insurance,
can I still sue and recover for my injuries?
