Were you involved in a traffic accident? Don’t wait. The sooner you seek help, the sooner you can start the recovery process.
Who is at fault?
The first thing you should do after a motor vehicle accident is determine who is at fault. The “at fault” individual is the person who is responsible for causing the accident, and is the person typically held legally liable for the damages incurred as a result.
Note that the individual responsible for the accident might not be the personal ultimately considered legally responsible. Sometimes something called “vicarious liability” comes into play. Vicarious liability refers to the situation that arises when an at-fault individual is operating for their work when they are in a motor vehicle accident. An individual driving to and from worksites, for example, or in the midst of making deliveries (with or without driving the company vehicle) might fall under vicariously liability. This means that the employer might be held responsible for the accident rather than the employee.
Other instances of vicarious liability include a child who is driving a family car or individuals driving another’s car (with permission). The parents of the child in question or the owner of the car in question might be held responsible for any accidents that happen rather than the driver. This means that if you end up in an accident with an individual who is underage, for example, their parents might be legally held responsible for the damages. This can help your recovery chances greatly, but you need an experienced lawyer who understands how to handle these cases. Kosin Law Office Ltd. has attorneys who understand how to represent you in order to get you the best chances for recovery possible.
Uninsured and Underinsured Drivers
Even if you’re a responsible driver and ensure your car insurance is up-to-date, not everyone will be so cautious. It’s entirely possible to end up in a situation where an at fault individual hasn’t maintained a policy adequate to cover your damages. They might not even carry insurance at all. In these instances, it’s important to understand how to collect despite these issues.
At Kosin Law Office Ltd., we believe that you deserve to be compensated for your damages and that the irresponsibility of another driver shouldn’t negatively impact you. Our experienced lawyers can help you figure out how to approach situations of uninsured and underinsured drivers in order to maximize the possibility for recovery. Note that this might include filing a claim with your insurance holder rather than with that of the at fault driver. Don’t be discouraged if your policy holder attempts to deny or undercut your claim! We can help.
