Vehicular accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury in the United States. Every year, thousands of people are victimized by careless, reckless drivers and are left with the burden of dealing with injuries that can last long after the accident is resolved. Because so much misinformation is disseminated concerning vehicular accidents, many people wrongly believe that they are not entitled to compensation for their injuries or that they are only entitled to the meager amount of compensation that the insurance company offers them.

Who Is Entitled to Compensation
If you have been injured in a vehicular accident that is the result of someone else's negligence or reckless actions, you may be entitled to compensation under the law. In order to recover compensation for your injury, your Cleveland personal injury lawyer must be able to prove:
- That there was a duty;
- That the duty was breached;
- That the person being sued was the cause of the accident; and
- That you suffered some type of injury as the result of the accident.
Successful personal injury claims involving vehicular accidents must satisfy all four of these elements. If all four elements are satisfied, the court will award compensation to the victim. Courts generally award compensation for the following:
- Loss of income;
- Loss of earning capacity;
- Property loss;
- Past and future medical expenses; and
- Pain and suffering.
