Car accidents happen all the time. They are, unfortunately, a risk that comes with getting on the road. But this does not mean that a person injured in a crash is on their own. State law gives you the right to seek compensation from those responsible for the accident. The money damages typically available in these cases are designed to cover medical bills, property damage, missed pay due to time away from your job, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Even in cases in which you were partially to blame for the accident, you may be able to recover some damages in proportion to the defendant’s responsibility. However, you would need to avoid being burdened with 51 percent of the fault to preserve your right to damages. A car accident attorney can help Brockton residents navigate this complicated issue.Bringing a Car Accident Claim
Drivers are not expected to be perfect behind the wheel. The law does, however, obligate drivers to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. At a minimum, they need to obey traffic laws like rules governing intersections and comply with speed limits. They also need to avoid getting distracted by behaviors like using a cell phone behind the wheel or eating or putting on makeup. Drunk driving is another leading cause of accidents that may lead to criminal penalties as well as civil liability.
To successfully sue a driver for injuries sustained in a car accident, you need to prove that the driver violated their duty of care. Also, you need to show that the driver’s negligent behavior caused the crash. This often requires detailed evidence from the scene, including witness statements and police reports. In some cases, an expert in the field of accident reconstruction may also go a long way in proving a case. Finally, you must detail the injuries that you sustained and tie them to the crash. This usually means providing significant medical records, along with testimony from the doctors who have treated you.Seek Representation from a Car Accident Lawyer in the Brockton Area
