Are You Eligible to File a Claim for Injuries Related to Camp Lejeune?
Can I sue if I was rear-ended in a car accident, and what type of compensation could I potentially receive?
If you were rear-ended in a car accident, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver and/or their insurance company. Here are some important things to know about suing for compensation after a rear-end collision:
- Liability: In order to file a personal injury claim after a rear-end collision, you must be able to prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident. In many cases (but not all), the driver who rear-ends another vehicle is considered to be at fault for the accident.
- Compensation: If you are successful in your personal injury claim, you may be entitled to compensation for a range of damages, including:
- Medical expenses: This includes the cost of medical treatment for any injuries you sustained in the accident.
- Lost wages: If you missed work as a result of your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages.
- Pain and suffering: You may also be entitled to compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress you experienced as a result of the accident.
- Statute of limitations: It is important to file your personal injury claim within the statute of limitations, which is the deadline for filing a claim. In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident.
- Hiring an attorney: It is important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
