When you have been injured in a car accident, the responsible party has a legal obligation to pay you for the harm that you have suffered. This is done first through their insurance company. The key is to know how much your claim is worth, and the average person may not have this knowledge. This is why they need a car accident lawyer.
There are two different types of damages in a car accident claim:
- Economic damages that pay you for money that came out of your pocket or that you could have earned
- Non-economic damages that compensate you for what you have had to deal with since the accident and may experience in the future
How Car Accident Damages Work
The rule of thumb is that you must be put in the same financial position as you would have been had the accident never happened. You should not be made to pay the price for someone else’s negligence. Your injuries are bad enough.

The other thing to know is that while you may be offered compensation, getting the amount that you deserve can be a challenge. The insurance company does not make it easy for you to get money out of them. They have a whole toolbox of tricks that they use to make the claims process more difficult. The insurance claims process really is a case where the squeaky wheel gets the grease. You become a squeaky wheel when you find an experienced and aggressive lawyer to fight for you.
