What can I get compensation for after a motor vehicle accident?
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by another party’s wrongdoing, you may be able to secure financial compensation for a variety of losses. Depending on your situation, you could possibly receive compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Future therapy or rehabilitation
- Property damage
- Wages you lost from time off work
This is by no means a comprehensive list, but these are some of the most common types of compensation that plaintiffs receive in motor vehicle accident lawsuits.
