- Q. I was passenger of bad wreck and get no compensation while driver does...
- A: Passenger has a clearer claim for damages than a driver - and should be compensated fully for damages. There is potential for recovery from both the driver and the other driver (2 sources) - depending on the facts of the accident
- Q. Yes I was in an accident about 2 weeks ago..well the other drivers insurance company is denying my claim even though
- A: It's not clear if this is an injury situation or just property damage, and the severity in either case. There is a two year statute of limitations in either case. If just property damage, and not much dollar damage, then small claims court might be the way to go (if < $4k). If an injury claim, then your medical will usually need to be > $2k to allow you to recover for pain and suffering damages. With a less than honest witness a lawyer will likely be needed.
- Q. Uninsured but accident clearly not my fault
- A: You may be limited in claiming pain and suffering damages if you were uninsured, but there are a number of exceptions. Even in a worse case scenario, you can still claim medical expenses (past and future) as well as lost wages (past and future).
