The Effects of Car Accidents
Being injured in a car accident can completely disrupt a person’s life, saddle them with extensive financial damages, and cause significant emotional distress and mental anguish. Car accident claims mainly account for the financial damages of a collision, such as medical bills, lost wages, property damages, and more.
A car accident claim can provide compensation for non-economic damages as well. Often taken as a percentage of the financial value of a claim, the compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, stress, and the other emotional and mental effects of a collision is meant to serve as recourse for the injury victim.
Car Accident Liability
In many car accident cases, reckless driving is the cause. It is simple to identify the liable party in typical collision cases, when the at-fault driver stops and provides their insurance and contact information to the other person involved. However, your case may not be this cut-and-dry.
It is possible that third parties other than a driver may be liable for your car accident damages. Vehicle manufacturers and mechanics could be liable if your accident was caused by mechanical issues, the city where you live could be responsible for dangerous road conditions, and other drivers who were not involved in the collision could be liable for their own reckless behaviors.
What to Do if You Were Injured in a Collision
Following a car accident, you must get the treatment you need as soon as you possibly can. Recovering from your injuries should be your top priority after a collision.
If you are able to do so, you should collect all evidence about your car accident that is available. In the immediate aftermath of a collision, you should take photos of the accident scene and gather contact information from the other driver and all witnesses. Once you receive medical treatment and begin to incur other expenses, you should save all bills and other documents.
