Motor vehicle accidents have tremendous and unfortunate impacts on the lives of the people involved. It is even worse when your life has been turned upside down by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness. The only silver lining when that happens is that you may receive financial compensation if someone else was negligent. First, you should contact an accident lawyer to get advice on the process and to be your passionate advocate.
Motor vehicle accidents are on the rise in Aventura and the rest of the country. Here are the types of motor vehicle accidents that could result in personal injury:
No matter the type of motor vehicle accident, the legal process and the guiding principles are going to be the same. Negligence is the basis for every single personal injury case. However, negligence is not assumed, but it is proven. You may find it difficult to do this on your own.
After all, showing what someone else did or did not do requires evidence. This is why you need someone with the experience and skill necessary to assemble your claim and tell your story of what happened to an insurance company that is more than happy to find any possible way to deny the claim.
The key part of any negligence test is comparing what a driver did side-by-side with what a reasonable driver would have done under the circumstance. In this regard, some cases are easier than others. If you can prove that the driver broke a traffic law, your case becomes a little less difficult. Here are some things that are negligence in accidents:
Even making an illegal turn without a signal or rear-ending a car are reasons to find the driver negligent. Not all of these are readily apparent. The driver may deny that they were doing any one of these. Without witnesses, it could be difficult to prove what the agency driver did, and they will rarely admit it. This is where an accident lawyer helps. There may have been witnesses or other evidence that could be used to prove what happened.
On your own, it is difficult to get to the bottom of everything. Not only do you lack the experience in investigating accidents, but you may never have dealt with an insurance company before. It is complicated because they have a financial interest in making it that way. They are hoping that you will settle your claim for less than it is worth, either because you do not know what it is worth, or they wear you down. Hiring an attorney lessens the chance that this happens.
This keeps them from taking advantage of you when you may be at your most vulnerable and grateful to accept whatever they offer. You are not bound to accept a settlement offer, and you have the ability to try to negotiate for more money.
