Compensation for car accident injuries may be available from multiple sources. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident that resulted in injury it is in your best interest to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. An experienced car accident attorney will investigate all available sources of compensation.
Compensation for car accident injuries
You and the passengers in your vehicle at the time of the accident may have claims against others involved or responsible for the car accident. At The Law Office of Gregory W. Fox we pursue all avenues of recovery for injured claimants. Owners of a vehicle may be liable for the negligent conduct of the driver, whether the owners are the parents of drivers under the age of 18, or businesses who provided a company vehicle to the employee involved in the accident. Additional sources of compensation for car accident injuries may include:
Employers may bear responsibility for auto accidents that were caused by employees while on the job.
Certain government units and agencies may be held liable for the fault of the auto accident due to failure in design, construction, and maintenance of safe roads and driving conditions. Only a knowledgeable car accident attorney will be able to handle government claims due to strict timelines and filing requirements.
You’ve probably heard of vehicle recalls and vehicle specific issues that lead to injuries in car accidents. In these cases it is possible that the auto or product manufacturer may face separate liability for negligent vehicle design or defective manufacturing for injuries arising from the accident. Compensation for car accident injuries may be available as a result of these issues, which include:
- Seatbelt malfunctions
- Tire defects
- Vehicle rollovers
- Gas tank explosions
- Roof crush
- Child seat issues
Unfortunately not all motorists on the road have the necessary insurance coverage or some may be underinsured. If this coverage exists under your policy or the policy of any passengers in the vehicle at the time of the accident it may be possible to obtain additional compensation for car accident injuries from these sources.
Damages in accident cases
Remember that insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible, and in the event of accidents you may have suffered injuries that lead to large medical bills, lost wages, and possibly reduced earning capacity. As experienced accident attorneys our goal is to pursue the maximum amount of compensation possible to assist you while you recover. This may also include pain and suffering.
