Compensation For Car Accident Victims

Three key elements need to be addressed for car accident victims to get compensation in a personal injury claim:

  • Liability: For a claim to be successful, it must be shown that the other driver was liable, or responsible, for the car crash.
  • Damages: Damages are the monetary amount that represents the losses suffered by the victim. Damages may include pain and suffering, property damage, mental anguish, loss of employment, loss of enjoyment of life, medical bills, lost wages and more.
  • Recovery: Recovery refers to the insurance coverage available. It includes the negligent driver's coverage and potentially even the victim's uninsured motorist coverage.
  • None of these three factors is a given in a car wreck case. Careful investigation is necessary to prove liability and calculate damages. Deep digging may be necessary to find available coverage to ensure recovery. This is why it is critical to choose a lawyer who is experienced in these matters and knows how to build claims for success. Attorney Carter B.
