I was in an accident. What are my legal rights?

Accident victims have many rights. Generally, you have a right to receive fair compensation for your injuries and losses from the party responsible for paying. This includes lost wages, medical expenses, costs to fix or replace damaged property, and compensation for pain and suffering.
You also have many other rights if you are in an accident, including:

  • the right to consult your lawyer before answering questions
  • the right to choose your own doctor
  • the right to decide who will fix your car (if it was an auto accident)
  • the right to decide whether to accept settlement offers
