A car accident can result in a chaotic scene immediately following the wreck. There are certain action steps you should take to protect yourself and your rights.
Immediately following the crash:
If you sustained injuries in a car accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party(s) that caused the accident to recover damages. In this type of legal claim, you and your car accident lawyer attempt to prove that the other driver involved caused the accident because they failed to take reasonable care. To demonstrate that an individual did not use reasonable care, there are three important items your attorney must prove. First, that a legal duty existed to use care, that a violation of the duty occurred, and that a direct relationship exists between the injuries sustained and the violation of duty.
In some cases more than one liable party is named in a car accident personal injury lawsuit. Examples could include a governmental entity in charge of road maintenance, the employer of a negligent driver, a bartender, server or social host in states that have Dram laws in effect, etc. When a legal claim becomes complex due to the involvement of multiple parties, it is difficult to resolve without the skill of a car accident lawyer that has extensive experience litigating motor vehicle accident cases. Your car accident lawyer will conduct an in-depth investigation working with a team of experts such as accident recreation specialists, expert witnesses in the medical field, engineers, private investigators and more to identify all parties with at least partial responsibility. Most attorneys provide a free initial consultation and will assess and advise you on the merits of your claim.
