Getting Around After an Accident

If you have been hurt in a car accident, your injuries are probably not the only thing bothering you. Almost everyone depends on their vehicles to go to work, school, the grocery store, and the doctor. Getting what you deserve from the at-fault driver means knowing what you are entitled to be paid and how to get it. Read on and learn more about getting paid for the damages associated with one particular form of loss: transportation.

Issues Related to Vehicles Losses

It can take time to resolve some claims, and every moment you are without a car can seem long and annoying. Not only are you entitled to be made "whole" again by the other driver, but you can also be reimbursed for any transportation-related expenses. Take a look at a few examples of those types of expenses. Be sure to make notes and keep up with all paperwork and receipts for those expenses. Your personal injury lawyer will need to see proof of your transportation-related losses.

1. You may be forced to rent a vehicle while waiting for the accident claim to be processed. Even if your own insurance doesn't cover a replacement rental car, the at-fault driver should be made to reimburse you for that loss. For accident victims who have access to public transportation, keep your receipts. The same thing goes for using ride-share services like Uber or Lift, taxis, etc.

2. Not only are you entitled to be paid for medical expenses incurred because of the accident, but you can also be paid for transportation-related expenses for attending to medical needs. If you encounter parking fees or tolls, keep the receipts for your lawyer.

3. You are even entitled to be paid for transportation-related expenses based on mileage. Keep up with all trips you make that are connected to your accident. That might include trips to:

  • The doctor, pharmacy, etc.
  • To take care of repair estimates.
  • To pick up medical goods like a walker or raised toilet.

4. Unfortunately, the insurer has limits on how much they will pay you for your wrecked car. The sums offered seldom take into account the auto loan balance and that can put some victims in a bad situation. If you owe more on your vehicle loan than what the insurer is willing to pay, you may need to take legal action to get more money. On a related note, your vehicle may not be easily replaceable. If you have an antique, extremely expensive, collectible, or rare car, speak to a personal injury lawyer about being fully compensated for your losses.
