How Do I Know if I Have Ground For a Car Accident Claim?
If you experienced a car crash where you, or a loved one, were seriously injured or killed, you might be entitled compensation for your medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. If you feel you have a claim, you must be able to prove the other driver or party involved was negligent and breached their duty of care. This breach of care by the other driver may include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Driving while distracted;
- Making illegal turns;
- Driving recklessly over the speed limit; and
- Engaging in other unlawful or reckless behaviors.
Our attorneys’ goal is to prove negligence due to the other driver and get you the compensation you deserve. You must not sign or accept any settlements from insurance companies before consulting with a reputable attorney. Speaking with an experienced car accident attorney is crucial when an accident occurs. Insurance companies are more concerned with protecting themselves than compensating you for your medical bills or other trauma that occurs. They will either try to pay the least amount possible or try to avoid a payout altogether. Accepting settlements without consulting your attorney could result in low-ball offers that may not include damages you are entitled to, which could consist of: future medical expenses, emotional trauma, or pain and suffering.
It is important to note that car accidents could also occur not because of a negligent driver, but because of a hazardous road condition, defective car parts, or as is becoming more prevalent in our technological world, driver-less car malfunctions. In these cases, vehicle or parts manufacturers or government entities may be at fault for the crash.
How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?
Your past and future medical bills, cost of treatments, and any pain and suffering will determine the amount of your claim. Other factors that can influence the amount of you recover from your claim could also include:
- The amount of income lost while incapacitated;
- Whether or not your injuries have affected your future earning capabilities;
- Whether or not you require home modifications to accommodate your injuries;
- Whether your injury caused life-long disfigurement, scarring, disability, or the loss of a bodily function.
