Get help for your non fault auto accident from a lawyer
An non fault auto accident can be a distressing event – particularly when someone else is to blame. You may also be left with severe injuries and a damaged vehicle. An auto accidents lawyer can help you deal with the aftermath and claim the compensation you deserve.
Types of non fault auto accident claims
Auto accident claims are many and varied. They include:
The majority of auto accident lawsuits are based on negligence (someone else’s failure to exercise a reasonable standard of care while using the roads). The initial investigation by your insurance company and auto accidents lawyer will help you to prove that the other party violated traffic laws and/or behaved in a careless manner. To win a negligence lawsuit, you must be able to show that your injuries and financial losses derived from the other person’s negligence.
If a defect in your vehicle contributed to your accident, you may be able to claim against the manufacturer. To win a manufacturer’s liability lawsuit, you must be able to demonstrate that the defect occurred during the manufacturing of your vehicle and contributed to your injury. Manufacturer’s liability claims can be based on a range of components, including tyres, airbags, brakes, engines and seatbelts.
Road design and maintenance
Faulty design, construction or maintenance of roads can contribute to auto accidents. Common causes include poor signage and unsafe surfaces, speed bumps and barriers.
Auto accident injuries
Auto accidents can cause a range of injuries, including:
• Cuts and bruises
• Burns and scarring
• Loss of limbs
• Brain and spinal cord injuries
• Joint, muscle and bone injuries
• Wrongful death
Non fault auto accident compensation
Auto accident compensation serves two purposes: it covers you against both monetary and non-monetary losses. Monetary losses include past, present and future medical expenses, lost wages and loss of earning capacity, while non-monetary losses include compensation for the physical and emotional pain suffered as a result of your injuries.
