If you are involved in an accident, what are your rights? Most people know they are eligible to hire a lawyer, but what are you really entitled to? Every case is unique, but we have narrowed down the top rights you may receive if someone else injures you:
1.Past Medical Expenses. If you sustain medical expenses as a result of injuries due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to demand they pay your medical expenses. However, they are not required to pay those expenses until you settle your claim.
2.Future Medical Expenses. If you suffered a permanent injury as a result of someone else’s negligence and will require medical treatment in the future, you are entitled to demand that the person who injured you pay for that now, rather than in the future.
3.Past Lost Wages. If you missed work and were forced to use sick leave or vacation days or lost income as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to demand that the person who injured you reimburse you for the wages you lost.
4.Future Lost Wages. If you are unable to return to work as a result of the injuries you suffered, you are entitled to demand that the person who injured you compensate you for the wages you will lose in the future.
5.Incidental Out-Of-Pocket Expenses. If you incur out-of-pocket expenses such as hiring a babysitter, mowing your lawn or cleaning your house as a result of injuries you sustained from an accident, you are entitled to demand reimbursement.
