Is Filing a Lawsuit Right for You?
We understand that dealing with the aftermath of a traffic accident can be difficult.
If you were seriously injured in an accident, the costs of visits to doctors’ offices, surgeries, prescription medication, and physical therapy can add up quickly. Many people are hurt so badly in traffic accidents that they are unable to return to work, causing their families to suffer additional financial hardship.
If you are struggling to keep up with the expenses associated with your injuries after a traffic accident, you may need to file a lawsuit to recover money damages from those responsible for the accident.

Personal Injury Claims
Most personal injury lawsuits filed after a traffic accident contain a claim or claims for negligence. Under the law, negligence is defined as the failure to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. For example, a person who runs a red light and causes a traffic accident will likely be found to have acted negligently by a court of law.
Damages in a Personal Injury Suit
The law recognizes a right of recovery for those injured by the negligence of another. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you may be entitled to recover money damages that take into account:
- The cost of past and future medical care;
- Physical pain, emotional suffering, and mental anguish you endured as a result of the accident;
- Lost wages due to work or employment opportunities missed following the accident;
- Reduced earning capacity because of temporary or permanent disability; and
- Damage to your vehicle or other personal property.
An experienced traffic accident lawyer can help you better understand what damages might be available to you in a lawsuit.
