We know that every time we get on the road the possibility of a car accident exists. That’s why we get insurance and drive safely. Unfortunately, sometimes accident do occur despite our best efforts to avoid them. With all the different places we drive, no matter how careful we are, we can’t control the actions of other drivers on the road.
If you’ve been in an accident, it can be a scary situation. If another driver was at fault, you may need a car accident lawyer to ensure you are fully covered for any damages or injuries that occur. You can count on the Dan Doyle Law Group to be by your side.
No matter how a vehicle accident occurs, one thing is certain – they are scary. Even minor accidents can catch us off guard and leave us with questions. If anyone is injured, the situation can become even more confusing and leave you with questions.
- Whose insurance company will cover this?
- Will my injuries keep me from working?
- Does insurance cover lost wages?
- Will I need to get a new vehicle?
If you are in an accident that was caused by gross negligence of another driver, then you have certain rights. If the driver who hit you was impaired by drugs or alcohol or they were driving distracted, you may be entitled to compensation beyond what the insurance company is offering.
Hit By Commercial Vehicles
If you get into an accident with a commercial vehicle and their driver was at fault, that company may owe you compensation. There are time when a company does not maintain their vehicles, leading them to be unsafe on the roadways. Companies have a responsibility to ensure their vehicles are roadworthy and that their drivers are properly trained to operate them. If they fail to do so, they should be held liable for damages and injuries as a result of their negligence.
What To Do If You Get In An Accident
The last thing you want to think about is getting hurt when you get in your vehicle. Unfortunately, accidents do happen. Sometimes, the other driver is at fault and possibly even negligent.
If you are in an accident, seek medical treatment for any injury, no matter how minor. If possible, get photographs of all damages while on the scene. Ensure the police are notified and get a copy of all reports related to the accident.
Missing work due to injuries sustained in a car accident can lead to lost wages and could severely impact your ability to care for yourself and your family. If you are disabled from injuries sustained in a car accident, your ability to work may be permanently impacted.
