Please consult with a lawyer.
Even though you were unemployed at the time of the car accident you still might be entitled to sue the at fault driver for damages. The fact that you were unemployed will have no impact on your right to collect for pain and suffering and medical and other expenses.
Although you were unemployed you may still be able to sue for past, present and future wage loss. To do so you would only need prove that on the balance of probabilities you were going to get a job.
Even those who can’t prove they suffered a wage loss as a result of the car accident, may still be able to get compensation for loss of economic opportunity or loss of marketability.
People who were unemployed at the time of the motor vehicle accident can also collect no fault benefits or accident benefits and may be able to get disability benefits from the accident benefit insurance company.
