Car accidents are one of the most common causes for personal injury lawsuits. It is expected that anyone operating a vehicle must exercise reasonable care. If a driver does not use reasonable care, they can be considered negligent and thereby liable for damages incurred as a result of their involvement in an accident.
Serious motor vehicle accidents can cause brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures and breaks, nerve injuries, and other severe injuries. In accidents that involve the negligent or careless conduct of another driver, a personal injury lawsuit can help the injured person obtain financial compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, rehabilitation, therapy and loss of wages.
Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You may have a personal injury case if your motor vehicle accident involved:
- Alcohol or drugs
- Hit and run
- Rear end collision
- A truck
- A bus
What Determines Fault In a Motor Vehicle Accident?
While your instincts may tell you that the other person involved in the accident was negligent, the court looks at specific factors to determine fault. Some of these factors include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Disobeying traffic signs and signals
- Driving under the speed limit
- Disregarding traffic or weather conditions
- Failure to signal properly while turning
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Improper passing
- Excessive lane changing
- Road rage
Drivers are not the only ones that can be held liable. For example, a government entity can be held accountable for lack of appropriate signs or poor road lighting. Automobile manufacturers can also be liable for car defects.
Proving fault in a motor vehicle accident can be complicated. That is why it is in your best interests to hire a skilled personal injury lawyer. A personal injury lawyer will investigate your case by reviewing police reports, traffic laws and interviewing witnesses. He will fight for your rights and help you recover the maximum amount of damages allowed.
