Victims of auto accidents are often injured due to the negligence of other drivers on the road. Many of these accidents could have been prevented if the other driver had been more careful or observant.
Car accidents can be severe due to:
- high speeds involved
- the vulnerability of unprotected drivers
Many types of injuries occur in an automobile or motorcycle accident, some of them catastrophic. These injuries include:
- Serious head injuries – from impact
- Lacerations – from flying glass
- Crushing injuries – in a rollover accident
- Broken bones and amputations
- Internal injuries requiring surgery
The costs associated with these types of injuries can be devastating for the victim and their family. For this reason, damage awards are available to victims of negligent driving to compensate for the harm suffered.
Damages are frequently awarded for:
- Medical bills and hospital stays
- Lost income from inability to work
- Vehicle damage
- Emotional distress from the accident
- Wrongful death
- Permanent disability
To pursue a claim for damages, you must show that the driver who caused the accident failed:
- to exercise care or
- use safe driving practices
Every driver has a duty of care toward other cars or motorcycles on the road. Drivers will be held to that standard if they cause injuries to others.
