A Negligence Lawsuit

This applies when the accident was at least 1 % someone else's fault. It is the ONLY WAY to be FULLY COMPENSATED for an injury. The benefits above provide medical payments or lost wages, but NOT pain and suffering. Only a negligence lawsuit compensates you for pain - physical and mental - and suffering, the biggest cost of a serious injury.
