Who is liable for my car accident injuries?
Even with a police report, it is not always easy to prove who is liable for a car accident. There could even be multiple responsible parties. In addition to any drivers involved, vehicle defects, unsafe road conditions, or faulty traffic control devices could have also contributed to your crash. The skill of our personal injury lawyers matters when it comes to identifying and pursuing all responsible parties.
Car accidents typically occur due to the negligence of one or more drivers. One of our goals is to amass enough evidence to show liability on the part of another driver in your accident.
We can potentially prove another motorist did not uphold their legal duty of care if they were engaging in any of the following negligent behaviors:
- Drinking and driving;
- Driving while distracted, such as texting and driving;
- Reckless driving; or
- Disobeying a traffic control device.
We can prove their fault by gathering police reports, speaking to witnesses, examining photographs and surveillance video of the accident, bringing in expert witnesses, and, if necessary, reconstructing the accident scene.
We will also connect the accident itself to your injuries using police reports, medical records, and interviews with your doctors.
Vehicle or Part Manufacturers
It is possible that a problem with your vehicle or one of its parts caused or contributed to your accident. Some common vehicle defects that make them unsafe to drive include:
- Broken seat belts or airbags;
- Engine problems;
- Unsafe tires;
- Stuck accelerators; and
- Faulty brakes.
If we find any evidence of a vehicle defect, we can seek compensation. We can show that the defect was a contributing factor in the accident. For instance, if your accelerator stuck and caused you to collide with another vehicle in front of you, your car’s manufacturer is liable for your damages. If one of your tires blew out despite being properly inflated, we can seek compensation from the tire manufacturer.
The possibility also exists that a vehicle defect did not cause your accident, but it made your injuries worse than they would have been otherwise. For instance, if your seat belt broke or your airbag did not deploy, you likely suffered more severe injuries than you would have if they had functioned properly. We can seek compensation for these damages as well.
Government Agencies or Municipalities
States and municipalities must ensure the safety of their roads by keeping them in good condition and making sure that certain crash-prevention features—such as traffic signals, guard rails, and stop signs—remain in working order.
As we investigate the circumstances of your accident and gather evidence, we also analyze the road’s condition and determine if any hazards contributed to the crash. For instance, if we find that an overgrown bush or tree obscured a stop sign or that a traffic light was not functioning properly, we can argue liability on the part of the entity responsible for maintaining these features.
What types of compensation can I receive after a car accident?
Car accidents involve many types of expenses. Depending on the circumstances of your crash, we can seek a broad array of damages.
We pursue compensation for both current and expected future medical bills. This includes hospital stays, medication, physical therapy, rehabilitation, counseling and psychiatric care, and much more.
If your injuries made you miss work or if you lose out on your full earning capacity as a result of them, we will seek these damages from the responsible party.
Pain and Suffering
You deserve compensation not only for the costs we can quantify, such as medical bills and lost earnings, but also for the pain and suffering you experience as you work toward recovery. We are aggressive in pursuing damages in this area and we will seek the maximum amount available in your claim.
If your loved one passed away as a result of car accident injuries and someone else was responsible, we can file a wrongful death suit against them.
