Types of Car Accident Claims
The compensation you are entitled to, as well as the general direction of your case, depends on the specific type of car accident claim. The 3 most common types of car accident claims are:
The majority of car accident claims are based on negligence, or when the responsible party acted in an irresponsible or careless manner that caused injury, death, or harm to another person. In order to win a negligence lawsuit, your attorney must be able to prove that the other party acted negligently, that said negligence caused the accident, and that the accident caused your injuries or losses.
In some cases, car accidents may be caused by a vehicle defect, such as faulty design, labeling, and manufacturing practices. If this occurs, you may be eligible to file a claim against the vehicle manufacturer or the manufacturer of the vehicle's faulty parts. In order to win a manufacturer liability lawsuit, expert testimony and analysis are required to prove that the manufacturer is responsible.
If you have lost a loved one in a car crash, you may be entitled to financial and punitive damage through a wrongful death lawsuit. To win this type of lawsuit, you need a competent, dedicated attorney to prove that another person's negligence caused the death of your loved one.
A large part of winning a lawsuit or successfully negotiating a fair settlement is properly documenting injuries, property damages, and other accident-related losses and putting a dollar value to said losses.
