GET THE COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE
When it comes to car collision accidents, the pressures from non-cooperative, at-fault parties and their insurers can make an already difficult time even more overwhelming. Our vehicle accident lawyers are here to consult and guide you through your options.
Although most car accidents are simple fender benders, serious collisions can happen and may result in major injury or death.
When severe car accident collisions occur, they have an effect not only on the individuals involved, but also their entire families. And in the most unfortunate cases, some victims are permanently disabled and may never walk again. That’s why it’s so important that the claims process is completed correctly the first time because victims may only have a single opportunity to seek compensation.
Car Collision Compensation
Those seeking compensation from a car accident have the chance to recover damages for their vehicle, medical expenses, and missed time from work due to injury. They can also be rewarded for pain and suffering. The at-fault driver is likely the person who caused the accident and is responsible for owing compensation to the other individual/party. If the at-fault driver is uninsured, it’s possible the victim’s insurer may have to cover the costs, depending on the policy terms.
Am I Liable?
Every car accident liability is determined by the circumstances of the accident. In the majority of common vehicle accident cases, rear end collisions are almost always the fault of the driver hitting the other vehicle from behind. You are to leave enough room between your vehicle and the one in front of you to stop if necessary. For left turn collisions, the driver making the turn is typically at fault. That’s generally because oncoming vehicles have the right of way over the left turning vehicle. There are exceptions to this situation however, when oncoming drivers are speeding through an intersection, running a red light, or failing to obey a yield sign. In the end, a police report will determine who’s liable.
