Common Causes of Car Accidents and Injuries
When it comes to personal injury claims, car accidents are the number one cause in the United States. These accidents can happen in an instant, and they can be caused by a variety of factors, such as distracted driving, adverse weather conditions, reckless driving, and speeding. If you're involved in a car accident, it's important to know what to do.
Here are some tips:
- First, make sure you and your passengers are safe. If there are any injuries, seek medical attention right away.
- Then, call the police and file a report.
- Exchange insurance information with the other driver and take pictures of the scene if possible.
- Finally, contact an attorney immediately who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Visit Your Doctor to Properly Document All Injuries
When you're injured in an accident, it's important to listen to your doctor and document everything. Make sure you keep copies of all documents and expenses related to your injury so you can be compensated for any expenses you pay that are out of pocket.
What are the Rights of a Turo Car Accident Victim?
As the victim of a car accident, you are entitled to be made whole again after your injuries. Auto liability coverage is mandatory in California – every driver on the road must be insured up to a certain amount. However, some drivers do not carry insurance, which means that you would have to attempt to recover your losses by suing an uninsured driver directly.
If the driver responsible for the accident is insured, the settlement of all auto accident claims will be processed by the other party’s insurance provider. The car insurance provider must first accept the responsibility on behalf of the insured, which does not always happen right away in some cases. If there is a question as to which driver was at fault for the accident, this issue may end up being litigated in court.
Once the responsible driver’s auto insurance company admits fault, the next step is to send a demand letter to the insurance company that includes the amount you are requesting for compensation for your injuries. The advantage of having an attorney communicate on your behalf is that it tends to expedite the process of agreeing on a settlement amount and issuing payment.
The types of damages for which an accident victim may recover include:
1. Economic damages – These are the quantifiable losses that can be calculated, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage.
2. Non-economic damages – These are the less tangible losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium.
3. Punitive damages – These are awarded in very rare cases where the defendant’s actions were particularly egregious or malicious.
When you get into a car accident, it's important to remember to keep all documentation related to your injuries. This will help prove the liability of the other driver and ensure that you receive the damages you deserve.
When you are offered a settlement amount from another driver's auto insurance company, you should consider it carefully before accepting. This is because accepting the settlement amount means that you cannot seek any additional recovery from the party involved. Your attorney should review all documents before you sign anything because you could give up your right to recover the full amount entitled to if you sign a release too soon.
