The 2 Sources of Compensation for Victims After InjuriesPersonal injury claims are often complex, and it’s not uncommon for victims to pursue multiple avenues of compensation. When we build injury claims for victims like you, we seek compensation from the following:
- The at-fault parties’ insurance providers—In the vast majority of personal injury claims, victims collect compensation from insurance companies—not the people or parties who caused their accidents. That’s why auto accident coverage is required in all 50 states.
- The at-fault parties themselves—In a small number of cases, at-fault parties may have to pay out of pocket for victims’ expenses. For example, drivers who don’t carry auto insurance may have to personally pay victims compensation for causing accidents.
