Car Accident Compensation Laws

What Is the Statute of Limitations on Car Accidents?

Wyoming state legislature determines the time limit of your right to bring a lawsuit to court. Lawsuits over car accident injuries or damage to a vehicle or other form of property are subject to a four-year deadline. If the car accident caused someone’s death, and a family member or representative of the individual wants to file a wrongful death claim, they must do within two years of the date of the accident.

What Is Comparative Negligence?

If you were injured as a driver in an automobile accident in Wyoming, you will need to prove that the other driver was at least 50% at fault for your injuries in order to receive compensation. Comparative negligence laws establish that if the court finds you 51% at fault, you will not receive any compensation for damages. If you are found to be 50% at fault or less, you will be reimbursed according to the percentage of your fault.

That means if you incurred $5000 in damages, and you were found to be 30% at fault, you would be awarded $3500. It is best to rely on the help of a skilled attorney to ensure that your level of fault is accurately determined.

What Are the Types of Damages?

There are two main categories of damages incurred in car accidents including non-economic damages and economic damages.

Non-economic damages include:

  • Disability

  • Emotional duress
  • Pain and suffering

Economic damages refer to:

  • Loss of earnings

  • Vehicle replacement or repair
  • Hospital bills
  • Medication co-pays
  • Rental car
