Car Accident Compensation Laws

Statute of Limitations

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.

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.

Damage Types

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
