How Do I Know if I Have Grounds for Legal Action Following a Car Wreck?
Generally speaking, the law protects the rights of accident victims to seek compensation (often referred to as “damages”) in the event that someone/some entity owed them a duty of care and in breaching that duty of care, directly caused them harm. This is a complex way of saying that if someone was legally responsible for behaving a certain way and in failing to do so caused your injuries, you likely have strong grounds to hold them accountable via the personal injury claims process. Not to over generalize, but you’ll likely have grounds for legal action if someone/another entity was more at-fault for the accident than you were (if you were partially at-fault) and they were acting negligently, recklessly, or in an intentionally dangerous manner at the time of the crash.
When it comes to auto accidents, details matter. Say that you were texting on your phone at the time of your collision. You may initially be under the impression that you’re not entitled to compensation because you were behaving in a negligent way while driving. However, upon investigation, it is revealed that the other motorist involved in your accident was both drunk and dozing off at the time of the crash and had hit a pothole that should have been attended to weeks ago by the state government. In this scenario, you’d likely be able to hold both the other driver and the government responsible for your injuries because they are far more liable for the crash than you were. In short, don’t make assumptions about whether you have grounds for legal action until you’ve spoken with our firm. Once your situation is clarified, the options available to you may surprise you.
