You may have been driving down the road safely when someone else made an error that resulted in your injuries, or perhaps you were stopped at a traffic light when you were hit. Whatever happened to cause your accident, when another person is at fault, it's important to make him or her pay for your injuries and the damage to your vehicle.
Even though cars are safer today than they've ever been in the past, this hasn't prevented you from being injured. Your injuries could be relatively minor in nature, like broken bones or lacerations, or you could be facing long-term challenges due to a new disability, brain injury, or paralysis. Injuries so severe that they result in your disability require intensive medical treatment, and that comes at a cost that you shouldn't have to pay. On top of that, you may need medical equipment that can cost thousands of dollars to buy and maintain.
When an accident takes place because another driver was being dangerous or negligent, you'll file a claim against their insurance company for compensation. If the driver didn't have insurance, then you may have to file a claim against the individual personally. If the accident resulted from mechanical failure, like if the brake lines went out on a car, then a defective product lawsuit can also be filed against the manufacturer or servicing company responsible for the repair and maintenance of the parts.
Whether you're facing a long-term disability or rehabilitation, your recovery matters. Our website has more information on how to claim the money you need to cover these services, your lost wages, and other things you need as you focus on your health and recovery.
