Available Compensation for Car Accidents
When you are injured in a car accident in the Vincennes region, you are allowed to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. Remember, however, that vehicular accidents generally carry a two-year statute of limitations under Ky. Rev. Stat. § 304.39-230 that we must satisfy when filing your claim. Wrongful death claims typically carry a one-year statute of limitations under Ky. Rev. Stat. § 413.180 from the date of death.
Compensation for your injuries can include:
Medical costs will begin to accumulate the moment the accident occurs. We will seek medical advice and review your medical records. Plus, we will look over your current medical bills or receipts.
Creating a full picture of how much you have suffered includes an estimate of all the recovery fees you will pay from surgeries to medications, physical therapy, counseling, transportation, medical equipment, and much more.
Lost wages start at the moment of the accident. When you are missing work, you should be compensated. Plus, we will calculate how much longer you will be out of work based on your injuries.
If you cannot work any longer or simply cannot do your job like you once did, we will seek damages that include your lost earning potential or lifetime earning potential.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering includes all the physical pain you are feeling after the accident, especially if it affects your quality of life.
Emotional distress counts all the psychological symptoms you have experienced since the accident, especially when they impact your quality of life.
Loss of Consortium
When you lose your support system or relationships, you may seek damages for loss of consortium.
If you lose a loved one in a car accident, you may seek damages for wrongful death. These damages generally include:
- Lost lifetime earnings
- Loss of moral training
- Burial costs
- Funeral expenses

Remember, only the spouse or children of the deceased may file suit. If none exist, the estate or a representative of the estate may file suit for wrongful death.
