- Thoroughly investigating the circumstances of your car accident;
- Gathering relevant evidence;
- Interviewing witnesses;
- Identifying and pursuing all liable parties;
- Hiring needed experts;
- Calculating the total value of your losses;
- Negotiating a fair and just settlement; or
- Moving forward with litigation.
Before making any statements to or signing any documents from the insurance company, contact the East Orange personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. You may sign away your right to full compensation for your injuries. The insurance company has aggressive negotiators and experienced litigators on their side, and so should you.
Car Accidents and Negligence
Negligence is the cause of most car accidents. Generally, this negligence is in the form of human error, including the following:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Driving drowsy;
- Distracted driving;
- Aggressive driving;
- Failure to follow traffic laws and signals;
- Improper lane changes;
- Driving inappropriately for the weather conditions; and
- Failure to yield.
Drivers are not always the direct cause of car accidents. Sometimes municipalities, car manufacturers, and parts manufacturers contribute to collisions in the form of:
- Improper intersection design;
- Road defects and hazards;
- Faulty vehicle equipment; and
- Defective vehicle manufacture design or defects.
Other liability sources for car accidents may include employers who hire drivers with poor driving records or suspended licenses and companies whose drivers are acting recklessly in company vehicles.
Car Accident Compensation
Whether a driver, company, government, or another entity causes a victim’s car accident injuries, the compensation for these injuries has the same underlying goal: To return the victim as nearly as possible to their pre-accident condition.
While no amount of money could ever replace a loved one or “cure” a victim’s serious injuries, damages in a car accident claim do generally cover:
- Medical costs, current, and future;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of future earnings;
- Property damage;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Wrongful death expenses.
Proving liability for damages is the most challenging part of any car accident claim. An experienced West Orange car accident attorney can build a strong claim for recovery and keep the claims process moving towards resolution on your behalf.
