Car accidents usually happen because of the negligence or recklessness of a driver operating his/her vehicle. In some cases accidents are caused by lack of maintenance and repair of the car. Whether the accident is caused by negligence, recklessness, drunk-driving, or improper maintenance, the victim gets injured in the accident.
Securing compensation for auto accidents
If you are involved in a car accident, you have a right to claim damages against the party at fault. However, claiming a full personal injury compensation from the party at fault is an almost impossible task for someone who is not represented by an experienced lawyer. The laws are complicated and different for every accident situation. You should never try to negotiate your claim on your own as the other party will be represented by insurance adjusters and sometimes lawyers who are much more skilled than you are in personal injury matters.
Types of damages recoverable in auto accident claims
- Medical costs (past & future), including that covered by insurance or out of pocket
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earnings
- Mental anguish, PTSD, depression, anxiety
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of spousal relations
- Property damage
- Punitive damages in cases in which the driver was drunk or hit and run
To receive the maximum compensation that you deserve against the party at fault, you should seek help from Attorney Ken Behzadi, who has over 25 years of experience in recovering compensation for victims of accidents.
