Less Than Half At Fault, Seriously Injured, Medical Expenses

You are probably entitled to damages for pain and suffering from the insurer or the person (including the driver of the car you were a passenger in), who caused the injuries, provided that you were less than 50% at fault in the accident and any of the following resulted from your injuries:

  • Your medical bills total more than $2,000; or
  • Fractured/broken bone (even tooth); or
  • Death; or
  • Serious and permanent disfigurement; or
  • Partial or total loss of eyesight or hearing; or
  • Loss of part of or all of a body member (i.e. the tip of a finger or toe).

Additionally, you are probably entitled to certain benefits (generally, up to $8000 per person) for medical treatment and/or lost wages.

If the automobile that caused your injuries was not insured at the time of the accident, or you were a victim of a “hit and run” accident (which includes an unknown automobile which cut you off causing the accident), there is a strong possibility that you may be entitled to money damages for pain and suffering under Uninsured Motorist Coverage.

If the automobile that caused you injuries did not carry enough insurance coverage to pay for your injuries, you may be entitled to collect additional monetary benefits from Under-Insured Motorist Coverage.
