Q: Hello. I got in an accident. Driving in a rental car. I have insurance. And it was judged that the other car was at faul
fault. This prevented me from working and im gonna have to stay with my brother now. I dont have health insurance. the rental was totaled. i dont know how severe it is but i do get headaches and my back/shoulder/neck area is stiff. Because i lost access to the car the i cant work right now and i am still being charged for the rental. DO you think its worth sueing this person? Will it be worth while? im affraid to get stuck with medical bills that arnt completely covered by the judgment.. because medical bills are more expensive with insurance. The other person involved told me the person was drunk and was driving on a suspended license . please tell me what you think. Thank you
Did this happen in Arizona? I am only licensed in Arizona so I cannot comment on other jurisdictions, but if this was an AZ collision and the other party was at fault a lot of times medical providers will treat with a lien so you do not have to pay out-of-pocket. In addition to the medicals, you are also likely entitled to lost wages and pain and suffering.
Many attorneys like myself offer free consultations to discuss.

A: I agree with Matthew's answer. If it was in Arizona, an experienced Arizona Personal Injury lawyer can help discuss the issues and facts and provide a more informed answer to your questions. I would suggest you call ASAP to discuss your rights and potential claims.
