    Answered . The short and most direct answer is yes. If you are injured in a car accident I would highly recommend that you contact a personal injury attorney.

    It is rarely a good idea to represent yourself in a situation like this when you suffered personal injuries and you complaints are ongoing. Many personal injury attorneys, including my office, provides free consultations. Therefore you have nothing to lose by contacting an experienced attorney to learn your rights.

    I wish you the best of luck

    Answered . You can sue for past and future: medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, and emotional distress, as well as property damage. Whether and what you will recover, even if the other party is at fault, depends on the extent of your injuries as proven by medical treatment/expert testimony, and the extent of the other party's insurance coverage, or your own uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist coverage.
