I was driving to work when I was hit from behind. I wasn't hurt immediately but went to the hospital a few hrs later and the next day with severe pain in my head, neck, shoulder, and back. Because the car is totaled, the car was a 98 chevy, I no longer have a car for work, and personal use. The accident has caused me to not preform my job as I should and I cant enjoy physical activities that I was so actively involved in before the accident occurred. Can I sue the woman because she has caused me pain and suffering, medical bills, and now no car?
Car / Auto Accident Lawyer
Yes, most certainly. You should consult with an experience persona injury attorney in your area to determine the best course of action, which, depending on your situation, could be filing suit, or could be approaching her insurance company to discuss settlement.
You should be compensated for your pain, your suffering, the costs of your medical treatment, and for missed work, among other compensable injuries. Hiring a personal injury attorney, who usually agree to take your case at little to no cost to you, will help you get the compensation you deserve.
