Wyoming is a state of rugged mountains, sprawling plains, and breathtaking natural wonders. It is also a vast state, whether you're driving through Casper, Cheyenne, or Gillette, there are over 95,000 square miles to explore and enjoy. These days, the vast majority of people use a car to get them around, and with more cars come more car crashes.
In 2020 alone, Wyoming roads saw a total of 13,171 motor vehicle accidents, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation. 2,256 of these wrecks resulted in more than 3,000 injuries and 127 fatalities. In the least populous state in the nation, these numbers are concerning.

To legally drive in Wyoming, the law requires all motorists to be insured for up to $50,000 for bodily injury. This insurance is intended to cover the expenses and damages in the event of an accident, even one caused by and only involving that driver.
However, if you were injured in a collision with another vehicle anywhere in Wyoming, and it was caused by the negligent or careless actions of the other driver, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against them. The expenses and damages that can be included in a Wyoming car accident claim include:
A separate property damage claim may be filed for any costs you may have incurred for your vehicle.
The well-seasoned team of car accident lawyers at Metier Law Firm has had decades dealing with Wyoming car wreck cases, and they know everything that can be included in such a claim. Call us anytime, and let us answer all your questions about what can be included in your particular personal injury case.
After a car accident, victims are often faced with huge medical bills, repair costs, and expenses related to their recovery, on top of their sometimes catastrophic injuries. In Wyoming, which is known as an “at-fault” state, the driver that is responsible for causing the collision is responsible for reimbursing the other motorist for any ensuing expenses.
It is possible to file a claim for this reimbursement on your own and without the representation of a personal injury attorney, and for relatively minor damages the average individual might be successful. For crashes that cause severe injuries that require expensive medical treatment, though, it is advisable to seek the advice of an experienced Wyoming car accident attorney.
At Metier Law Firm, we don’t just represent you in court. We are here to help you through the process of filing your claim, every step of the way, from your initial free consultation to getting the life you knew back again. Call today, and let us get started on your car accident injury case.

The damages for which you can pursue compensation can be broken into two main categories:
Your attorney will help you determine which damages you can pursue following your accident.
Many car accident victims face high medical bills, lost wages, car repairs, and other economic damages following an accident. It is no surprise that many cannot afford the cost of crash scene reconstructions, visits to medical specialists, and other investigative services on top of the costs incurred by the accident.
The cost of pursuing justice and compensation should not deter you from speaking with an attorney at Metier Law Firm following an accident.
At Metier Law Firm, we understand that car accident victims face unique physical, emotional, and monetary challenges in the aftermath of a crash. You and your loved ones are going through a difficult time, and you should not have to worry about retainer fees or legal costs in addition to everything else you are experiencing. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis and focus on winning your case before handling any of the financial aspects of your case.
You, your family, and your recovery always come first.
In many cases, the other party’s insurance company will contact you immediately after the accident asking for a statement. They may come across as friendly or well-intentioned, but their ultimate goal is to obtain a statement that will ultimately hurt your case and allow them to give you the lowest settlement they can.
If the other party’s insurance company contacts you, tell them that you would like to speak with your attorney before providing them with a statement at a later date. Then, contact your attorney to discuss your next steps.
