Have you been injured in a car accident?

We all know that vehicle collisions are an unfortunate everyday occurrence, and that they may result in injury, disability, death, and vehicle damage.  However, do you know what types of injuries and expenses are compensable? Do you know what your rights are? Do you know what your duties are after you have been involved in a car accident? Do you know that there are time limits?

Your Rights – If someone else’s negligence caused your injuries, you have the right to claim for damages such as the cost of medical treatment, loss of earnings, loss of enjoyment, pain and suffering, and the cost of any future care you may need.  You are entitled to monetary damages (money) to place you in the position (as best as money can do) that you would have been in had the accident not happened.

Your Duties – Along with the ability to claim for damages, comes a duty to mitigate your damages.  This is a fancy way to say that you need to take reasonable actions to minimize your losses, which usually means seeking medical treatment, following your doctor’s advice with respect to treatment, getting back to work when your doctor advises you that you are ready, and perhaps attending job retraining if you can’t return to your previous job.

Time Limits – There are quite a few different time limits that you need to be aware of.  Some are very short.  Certain things may have to be done promptly after the collision, some things need to be done withn 30 days, others within 90 days, some within two months, others within 6 months, some need to be done within 12 months, and others need to be done within 2 years.  Each case is different, and an auto injury lawyer can guide you through these time limits so that you don’t miss your chance to receive compensation.
