If I was in a car accident that wasn't my fault, what can I sue for?
I suffered whiplash, my daughter and I need counseling, and my car isn't drivable anymore. I even had to pay to get my car out of the tow place.
You can possibly sue the at-fault party (e.g the driver of a car which hit your car) for medical costs (both to date and projected future costs; this *may* include counseling, if the necessity can be shown sufficiently); lost wages, if any; any dimunition or reduction in earning potential; any out-of-pocket costs required to compensate for the injury (e.g. do you need to hire a housekeeper for some time, since you cannot clean house due to an injury); possibly pain and suffering, if the injury is severe and long-lasting enough; for the cost to repair your car (or replace, if it can't be repaired economically); for towing; and possibly for car rental while waiting for your car to be repaired. It would be worthwhile for you to consult with a personal injury attorney; good luck.
