Who is responsible?
You know who caused your car accident but in order to recover from your injuries, you must prove that the other party was negligent. Some examples are:
- Drunk drivers: Those who drive a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Texting driver: Those who take their eyes off the road to text are as dangerous as a drunk driver.
- Distracted drivers: It can be as simple as changing a radio station, picking up a dropped cell phone or eating while you drive.
- Too fast drivers: Some people are always in a hurry and drive way too fast. Any speed that is unsafe for traffic is dangerous.
- Those who create hazardous road conditions: Leaving a car in the roadway is never a good idea. Spilling an unsecure load on the roadway can become an extremely hazardous situation.
What can you ask for in a personal injury claim?
The aim of a personal injury claim is to give the injured victim sufficient financial compensation to cover all losses suffered from an accident. However, traffic accidents often have tragic and life altering consequences. Crash survivors can end up with serious injuries, such as brain damage, the loss of a limb or can be paralyzed for the remainder of their life. Each of these can have an incredibly negative impact on their quality of life. If someone else is responsible for these injuries, the law requires that they be held accountable.
Examples of damages that you can seek include:
- Medical expenses: hospitalizations, doctors’ visits, physical therapy and future medical treatment.
- Income: income loss since the accident, future wages and loss of earning ability.
- Pain-and-suffering: physical pain and distress, psychological and emotional distress.
- Out-of-pocket expenses: co-pays, over-the-counter medicines, reimbursement for mileage to doctors’ visits and physical therapy.
Wrongful death cases: no amount of money can bring back a loved one but the survivors of someone killed in a car crash may have to worry about medical bills, burial costs, loss of future income and retirement among other things.
