Can you get money from being in a car accident?
You’re driving down the street, happily obeying the rules of the road, when suddenly a distracted driver blows through a stop sign and plows into your car. Stunned and scared, your mind begins to race through all the bills you’ll have to pay for doctor’s visits and car repairs. Are you hurt? Will you miss work? What will your insurance company cover? Can you get money from being in a car accident to compensate for your pain and suffering? Los Angeles car accident attorneys from Ellis Law, are standing by 24/7, to help you answer these pressing questions.
Seek damages to help you get back on your feet
If you’ve been involved in a car accident that was caused, or made worse by, another driver’s actions, you have a right to seek damages. The other driver’s insurance company may offer you a small settlement to cover auto repairs and pay some of your emergency medical bills, but you could be entitled to much more. Therefore, it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney before you accept any sort of settlement. At Ellis Law, we can direct you to a trusted physician who will accurately assess your medical condition and give you an estimate or what future medical bills may be.
Money to cover the cost of living while you recuperate
If you’ve been injured in a car crash, you may have to miss days, or even weeks at work. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to suffer financial hardship. The liable driver and their insurance company may have to pay for your cost of living expenses like rent, tuition, mortgage payments and credit card bills while you recuperate. In addition to this, it’s also possible to sue for the infliction of both physical and emotional pain. It’s not uncommon to seek up to 3 times the amount of calculable tangible damages to make up for pain and suffering. Of course, to take full advantage of your protections under the law, you’ll need talented and experienced legal counsel in your corner.
