Car accidents come in a wide variety of forms, whether it is a big pile-up that shuts down an entire highway or a seemingly minor rear-end collision at a stop sign in a residential neighborhood. They may also be caused by a number of factors, including traffic violations, drunk driving, texting while driving, aggressive driving behaviors like tailgating, and many more. No matter the type of crash or the source of the collision, these accidents may cause serious injuries and even death.
A person who was hurt in a car accident may pursue compensation from those responsible for the crash. These parties may include other drivers, government agencies responsible for keeping roads in good condition, construction crew operators, and even car manufacturers and parts makers. The money damages available in these cases cover compensation for medical bills, missed wages, and property damage. They also may cover compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress. In tragic cases in which a person is killed in an accident, family members have the right to sue those responsible for wrongful death.
To seek damages, a person injured in a crash typically brings a claim based on negligence, a legal theory that holds people or entities liable for failing to live up to a “duty of care.” In car crash cases, the question is usually whether a driver lived up to his or her duty to operate the vehicle in a reasonably safe manner. If the driver was speeding, for instance, or drinking and driving or engaging in other unsafe behavior behind the wheel, he or she is likely to be considered negligent. The injured person also needs to show that the driver’s negligent actions directly caused the crash and must substantiate the harm and losses that resulted.Barnstable County Attorneys Advocating for Car Accident Victims
