What Damages Can You Collect?
We know which New Jersey and Pennsylvania insurance laws apply to each type of vehicle. The insurance laws determine whether you collect from your own insurance carrier or from the insurance carrier of the at-fault party. We will help you understand how no-fault and liability insurance affect your ability to recover damages.
- Medical – You are entitled to be in the same position as you were before the accident. Your bills include medical bills to diagnose your condition and treat it. They include bills for medical equipment and medications. There are often large bills for therapy. Future bills also have to be considered.
- Property – Car crashes mean your car has to be repaired or replaced. There can also be damage to the contents of the car. You may be entitled to claim car rental expenses.
- Lost wages – If another person is at fault, you’re entitled to be reimbursed for all your lost wages. You may also be entitled to any lost benefits, such as lost pension benefits.
- Pain and suffering – Accidents cause pain – physical pain and emotional pain. The pain can last for a lifetime. Our skilled personal injury lawyers know how to explain your pain so the jury will feel it. We work with doctors and experts to get you the award you deserve.
- Disfigurement – If your face or hands or any part of your body is scarred, you have a right to demand compensation.
- Loss of consortium – If you’re married, your damage claim includes the loss of the comfort and society of your spouse.
- Death – If a loved one loses his or her life in a vehicle accident, then his or her personal representative can ask for a unique set of damages. Our law firm will explain who can claim damages in a wrongful death claim and what damages are allowed.
Who Might Be Held Accountable?
- The other driver – The other driver (the one who caused the accident) is the primary target in any motor vehicle lawsuit.
- The owner of the other vehicle – Sometimes the owner of the vehicle is not the driver. The owner may be the spouse of the driver. The owner may be an employer of the driver.
- A manufacturer or retailer who created a defective car part. Some accidents are caused by faulty equipment such as a steering wheel that doesn’t work. We will investigate whether a car part caused the accident.
- A seller of alcoholic beverages – Sometimes the responsible driver is intoxicated at the time of the accidents, and the server of the alcohol may be responsible for your damages.
