Is There a Limit to the Damages I Can Recover for My Car Accident Injuries

Your personal injury claim can include recovery for medical bills, lost wages, vehicle damage, pain and suffering, and any other matters related to the accident. The amount that you can recover is often determined by the amount of available insurance the at-fault driver has. For example, if the other driver has $1 million in liability insurance, this is usually enough coverage to handle most personal injury cases. Of course, death cases and severe or catastrophic injury cases can be worth far more than $1 million.

However, the more typical scenario involves at-fault drivers who only have $10,000 in liability coverage. What do you do if your damages far exceed this amount? What if you have $50,000 in medical bills but the other driver has minimal insurance? What if you need surgery or ongoing medical treatment but the other driver does not have enough insurance to pay for all your damages?
