After getting severely injured in a car accident, you will easily be able to get compensated for your physical injuries if you were not at fault. The hard part is determining how much to ask for when it comes to the emotional injuries and lifestyle changes you are facing and will face in the future from this accident. Because it is hard to put a price on emotional damages, your personal injury attorney might suggest keeping a journal to record your feelings and life after the accident.
- If you've recently been injured in an auto accident, you may be wondering about your legal options. For most who were not at fault in an accident, this is limited to suing the at-fault driver (or his or her insurance company) to help compensate you for any medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering. However, in some cases, even the at-fault driver may not have been completely responsible for the accident -- it may have been due to poor or defective highway design.
