Understanding Car Accidents Laws!
“The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration reported that motor vehicle crashes and fatalities increased in 2013. Over 33,000 people died in crashes that year.” Car Accidents are the most common form of injury and there are many reasons why these accidents occur. These accidents could be caused by another person, you, the city, the car, or really just a simple accident. Some of the different types of accidents are distracted driving, drunk and impaired driving, hit and run accidents, Head-on collisions, roll over accidents, and so many more. An attorney will always look at all the possible causes of the car accidents and they will put into every consideration about what everyone says about the accident. If they new texture of the roadwork through off a driver and caused an accident, it would be partially the cities fault. If the driver of the other car that caused the accident then the attorney would question the driver of the other car.
If the accident was caused by you then it was your fault. It anyone was killed in the accident then the family of the victim would be able to sue the person at fault for a lot of money. If this happens, most of the time, not just one person will put in money to pay for it. If the person who caused the crash was thrown off, because of something that was the cities fault, then the city would have to put a percentage into the payment.
“Some states do not follow the doctrine of joint and several liability.” The only permit that the defending lawyer can offer in these kind of cases is getting the person to pay the smallest percentage of the payment as possible.
