5 Ways You Might Be Compensated As The Victim Of A Car Crash

In 2014, distracted driving was responsible for 10% of car accident deaths. That sounds significant, but when compared to alcohol-related accidents accounting for 31% of car crash deaths. Driving can be a dangerous activity for anyone on the road. In the event that you or someone you know has been in an accident that resulted in damage caused by drunk driving, or even in physical injury, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Personal injury lawyers work tirelessly to ensure you don't suffer needlessly due to another's negligence. Here are some personal injury law cases relating to car crashes, and what you might be entitled to in reparations.

  1. Medical Bills
    If you were the victim of a car crash that resulted in hospitalization, and the other driver either didn't carry insurance or their insurance company won't cover your medical bills, you should consider filing a lawsuit. It wouldn't be fair to ask you, the victim, to pay your own medical bills.
  2. Lost Income
    If you missed work due to a distracted or drunk driver causing a crash, you might be entitled to compensation for lost wages.
  3. Property Damage
    Your car certainly should be covered by the other driver's insurance, but there are a few reasons that you wouldn't receive the amount of money you are due. One reason might be that the other driver doesn't actually have insurance. Another could be that insurance companies often move quite slowly, causing you to be without your car for possibly months.
  4. Pain and Suffering
    If you sustained injuries that have decreased your quality of life, you might be awarded payment for pain and suffering.
  5. Punitive Damages
    Personal injury law cases are unlikely to go to trial. When they do, and the jury believe the defendant showed such a horrible degree of negligence, you might be awarded compensation for punitive damages.


Whether you are the victim of a crash caused by a distracted or drunk driver, you might deserve financial restitution. If you feel like you are in this position, don't hesitate to call today and consult with a personal injury lawyer.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
