It is estimated that over 30,000 people die and over 2 million are injured each year due to vehicle accidents. Whether you were a pedestrian, bicyclist, motorcyclist, auto driver or passenger, if you are injured in an auto wreck, you may be eligible to receive compensation. The at-fault driver is liable, and in some accidents, both drivers may be partially at fault and liable for damages. It is important to have a lawyer on your side to ensure you receive the compensation you are owed for your injuries from all liable parties.
Negligent Drivers Cause Injury Accidents
Poor weather and other factors that are out of your control can contribute to vehicle accidents. While the at-fault driver will be liable for injuries and property damage regardless of the cause, it is different if the driver was negligent. A driver who is distracted while talking on their phone or driving while intoxicated has made a choice to be negligent and put others at risk. When a vehicle injury or fatality accident is caused due to a driver blatantly ignoring the law, they should be held liable for the damage they caused.
Proving negligence is a key component of an auto accident injury lawsuit claim. If the crash was simply an accident due to slippery roads or other uncontrollable circumstances, the claim may be limited to the specific financial damages. With a negligence auto injury accident claim, there may be more substantial compensation owed since the accident was preventable.
Do I Need a Lawyer for an Auto Accident Claim?
Many people believe that they will get the same amount of money handling their insurance claim on their own after an accident. While this may be true for most property damage claims, injury claims can be much more complicated. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that make their money by paying out as little as possible for claims. They will often offer a small settlement for an injury that may seem enticing at the time to injury victims, but their case may be worth much more. It is in your best interest to talk to an auto injury accident claims lawyer before accepting any settlement or financial agreement from the insurance company. You could be shorted tens of thousands of dollars or more without legal assistance.
