How Much Money Can I Get?
When you seek compensation for your losses after a car accident, you are typically aiming to recover injury-related expenses.
If your car accident was caused by the carelessness of another driver, you may be able to recover compensation for all losses that resulted from your injuries, including, but not limited to:
- Medical expenses, such as hospitalization, surgeries, medication, and more.
- Lost wages, such as work you missed for doctor’s appointments or recovery time.
- Pain and suffering, such as the physical pain of your injuries and treatment and emotional trauma.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to seek compensation for your out of pocket expenses, such as travel expenses to and from doctor appointments. Speak with one of our Muncie, IN, car accident lawyers today to find out if your case qualifies you for this kind of compensation.
Comparative Fault in Indiana
Indiana has a modified comparative fault law, which may assign a percentage of fault to each party in an accident. This means even if you were not directly at fault for causing your accident, you may still be found partly responsible.
If you’re found to be partially at fault for your accident, your compensation may be reduced by that percentage. If you are more than 50% responsible, you may not be entitled to any compensation. That’s why it’s so important to contact an experienced car accident lawyer as soon as you are able. Our attorneys are here to be your dedicated advocates and help you seek the maximum amount of compensation you are legally owed.
