People act carelessly behind the wheel all too often in the Bay Area, causing serious harm as a result. Victims have legal recourse against the drivers responsible for their injuries. They may be able to file a personal injury case to seek compensation for their physical, emotional, and financial losses. A car accident lawyer at our firm can help you pursue damages such as medical expenses, the costs of future treatment, pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life, lost income and earning capacity, damage to your vehicle, and loss of consortium. To get this compensation, you probably will need to prove the elements of a negligence claim. Negligence is a theory of law that holds people accountable for failing to act safely under the circumstances and causing preventable harm to others. It may apply whenever a driver acts carelessly between the wheel, resulting in a crash. For example, a driver may run a stop sign or a red light, fail to check a blind spot, or look down at their phone for a text while hurtling down the freeway. The accident must have been a foreseeable result of the driver’s unsafe behavior.
Victims of car accidents may suffer injuries that persist for many years or for the rest of their lives, such as paralysis, brain trauma, PTSD, or serious burns. The most devastating collisions result in an unnecessary loss of life. Motorcycle riders, bicyclists, or pedestrians are particularly susceptible to being involved in a fatal accident, since they are exposed to the full force of a vehicle, whereas people inside cars and trucks have structural protections to blunt the impact. Family members who are grieving for the loss of a loved one may be able to bring a wrongful death claim to pursue damages. If the victim provided substantial financial and emotional support to their family, such as to their spouse or child, these damages may be compensated. Costs related to medical treatment and funeral expenses also may be recovered.
The situation may be somewhat more complicated when the at-fault driver is not insured or does not have adequate insurance to cover the victim’s injuries. This is why it is critical to secure uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage from your insurer. If you do, you can bring a claim against the insurer for compensation. Despite your status as a policyholder, you should be aware that the insurance company is likely to contest your claim if at all possible. You still need a car accident lawyer in this situation to make sure that the appropriate evidence is gathered to protect your rights.Philosophy of Practice
