If you or a loved one has been in a car accident, which resulted in injuries, you may have rights to certain types of compensation. In cases where another person caused the car accident, the insurance company of the at-fault driver must pay out for the damages you suffered. This does not only include the damage to your vehicle, but your medical bills, and other costs that may have come about as a result of the accident.
The victim had a total of $29,000 in medical bills and had also missed work due to the accident. He was able to continue receiving pay since he was a unionized employee, but doctors were not sure if his injuries would require more surgery in the future. The jury awarded him $500,000 for pain, suffering, and medical bills.
