What is Your Auto Injury Worth?
Car accidents can leave a long trail of damage. In some cases they may cause bodily pain for years, or even affect your ability to get and keep a job.
The personal injury laws in your state allow for you to be compensated for your injuries. You may be able to receive payments to help you with:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Diminished "enjoyment of life"
- Pain and suffering
- Damage to your car and other property
Members of your family may, in some cases, be entitled to recover for some of their losses based on your injury, and in certain cases you may even be entitled to punitive damages.
Also, remember that even minor injuries could be significant enough to deserve reimbursement. What may start out as a minor whiplash could grow into a larger, more serious back injury.

When to File an Auto Accident Lawsuit
If someone else is at fault for your injury, then you may want to speak with a lawyer about filing. Personal injury law allows you to file a suit for many types of injuries and accidents:
- Negligent or reckless driver: Driving too fast, ignoring traffic signals or weather conditions, paying attention to cell phones
- Unsafe roads
- Poorly designed cars, particularly vans and SUVs or airbag injuries
- Mechanical failure, including: Brake failure or tire failure
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Unsafe commercial truck and delivery drivers
A personal injury can answer your questions about who might be liable for your injuries. However, you may not want to wait until the pain or medical bills get unbearable to take action. By then, it may be too late.
