First of all you can sue the other driver for your damages both economic damages, for example unpaid medical bills, unpaid wage loss and also for what we call non-economic damages, things like pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, disability or impairment and loss of the ability to enjoy life’s pleasures.

I often advise clients that when you get in a car accident and you have speak to a lawyer they will ask you four questions: Who is at fault for the accident? Does the opposite driver have bodily injury insurance? Do you have uninsured motorist insurance? What was the amount of property damage?
4) What Happens If I Was Injured In A Car At Work?
If you have an injury that occurs on the job, it depends on whether or not that injury is caused by a co-employee or your employer. If it is, you need a workers’ compensation attorney because you can’t sue your employer even if your employer is negligent, except under certain circumstances. Generally, you can’t sue your employer. If you’re on the job and you’re injured by a third party, then you need to seek the evaluation of your injury claim by a personal injury lawyer. At Morgenstern & Herd, we often with workers’ compensation lawyers – you’ll still have a workers’ compensation claim – and we’ll repay your compensation for that injury claim out of the recovery of the proceeds from the third party who’s at fault for your injuries.
