What Type Of Damages Can I Sue For?
You can sue for damages from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In some cases, your own insurance may cover some or all of the damages. These damages will depend of course on the specifics of the crash. In general, you can sue for compensation for your:
- Medical bills, including exams, consults, medication, care and equipment
- Lost wages from missed work due to the crash
- Car repairs or if your vehicle is totaled, then replacement
- Pain and suffering or emotional distress in some cases
In fatal crashes, the family of the person who died can also bring a wrongful death lawsuit. This will cover the above expenses plus any funeral costs.
