You are entitled to be placed in the same position you were before the accident occurred. What does this mean?
Your car was damaged and you were physically injured. Thus, there are two types of damages you incurred: (1) property damage and (2) physical damage. As a victim, the law requires that the person that inflicted these damages return you to the position you were in had the accident never occurred.
While it is impossible to rewind time to place you back into the position that you were in prior to the accident, the law requires this return to your pre-accident state through a financial equivalency, i.e. an amount of money that equals all of the losses you sustained as a result of the accident.
If your car is damaged but repairable you are entitled to receive compensation for repair of the vehicle. In addition, you are entitled to compensation for the diminished value of the vehicle as well as loss of use of the vehicle for the time that you are without it. This includes the value of a replacement vehicle during this time. If the vehicle is determined to be unrepairable (i.e. a total loss), you are entitled to compensation in an amount the vehicle is worth in the relevant marketplace, as well as tax and licensing fees.
You are entitled to your full medical expenses regardless of whether your health insurance paid a portion of the medical expenses. You are entitled to mental and emotional damages, including pain and suffering both physically and mentally caused by the accident.
You are entitled to wage loss and even loss or damage to your credit, etc. provided that you can demonstrate the damage amount (without speculation) and that such damages were caused by the accident.
What you are legally entitled to and what you can prove was caused by the accident remain two separate issues. Again, the law entitles you to all damages you incurred because of the accident. Whether you can demonstrate or prove a specific injury or damage is a matter of proof and remains a separate issue.
