Vehicle accidents are the most common form of personal injury claims. When you’re in an accident with another driver, you may be eligible to receive damages, but it requires proving negligence on the part of the other driver. This means that you’ll need to demonstrate several factors:
- The other driver was acting irresponsibly in a way that no reasonable person would act under the same circumstances. This is called the reasonable person standard.
- The irresponsible actions of the other driver are what led to or directly caused the accident.
- You were injured as a direct or proximate cause of the accident.
Each vehicular accident has its own unique set of circumstances, and proving negligence can be very tricky for the layperson. For example, trucking accidents can actually involve a range of people who might share responsibility. For example, the owner of the trucking company is responsible for the actions of truckers who drive under their banner, even if said truckers are technically independent contractors.
If the accident was caused by shifting cargo, the loading or shipping company could be responsible. If the problem is bad brakes or another faulty part, the manufacturer of the parts could be responsible. For these reasons, cases can get very complex very quickly as the various parties will certainly argue about who, if any of them, has to pay up.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Dealing with insurance companies is another nightmare that comes with trying to get the compensation you deserve. When you’re in an accident, the first contact you’ll have with an insurance company is the insurance adjuster. They will present themselves as a friend and confidante, but in truth, their job is to get out of paying for your injuries.
These people are judged on job performance based on how many cases they close, and how quickly they close them. They actively look for reasons to punch holes in your story. They’ll start by offering a very lowball offer, telling you that it’s your best shot to get payment for your injuries. When you refuse, they will get more aggressive and bullying, threatening you with an offer of nothing if you pursue the claim. They might even imply that the injury is your fault.
The important thing to understand is that they don’t know your case. They know a generic, basic level of detail that was gained through a cursory examination of a file. They are also limited in what they’re allowed to offer you. They don’t know—nor do they care—about the damages you’ve suffered, or the effect it’s had on your life.
Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys are here to help Mobile, AL, accident victims get the damages they deserve, and to take the stress of dealing with insurance companies away.
Workers’ Compensation Cases
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that almost every employer has to carry. It’s there to cover you when you get hurt throughout the course of your employment. It’s a no-fault system which means that it doesn’t matter how you get injured, so long as it’s while doing your normal work duties, you should be covered. It’s there to cover your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages.
