We Handle All Negotiations With The Insurance Companies
In some instances, drivers may provide other forms of financial responsibility, including cash deposits or surety bonds. Depending on your state, if you have an has a “fault” system so drivers are responsible for paying any costs due to fault, even if it is not covered by their insurance.
For instance, if an individual’s car insurance only covered 80% of a victim’s expenses, the at-fault driver would be expected to make up the additional 20% out of pocket.
As a result, accident victims more often than not will choose higher coverage options that will help them pay for any additional damages. If caught, uninsured drivers may face fines, license suspension of up to four years and an impounded car.
Additionally, uninsured drivers are still responsible for paying all lawsuit damages and cannot receive non-economic damages themselves, even if they were not at fault.
Who Was At Fault? Fault State.
In no-fault states, claims are encouraged to remain out of court by going through the insurance companies. Regardless of blame, the insurance company will compensate the policyholder for minor damages accrued.
In fault states, the person at fault for the accident bears all liability. If multiple people are responsible for the accident, liability is split.
If individuals wish to sue in an at-fault state, they can take one of the following actions:
- File a claim through their personal car insurance company
- File a claim through the other driver’s insurance company
- Pursue a personal injury lawsuit
Anyone involved in a car accident involving injuries, death or damage estimated to cost over $1,000 in repairs must report the incident to the police. Failure to do so can lead to fines, hit-and-run charges, and license suspension.
Additionally, drivers should report the incident to the DMV within 10 days if someone is killed, property damage exceeds $1,000 or an individual is injured. Not doing so can lead to your license being suspended or revoked.
Regardless of how minor an accident may have been, it is always recommended drivers file a police report in case future issues arise.
If you have insurance, drivers will also have to report the incident to a claims representative.
However, it is advisable to avoid giving a recorded or written statement until you’ve discussed the accident with an attorney.
Proving Who Was At Fault
If you choose to pursue a lawsuit, it is integral to the case’s success you prove the other driver was at fault. Keep any photos and documents associated with the accident. Write down in detail what occurred and keep a list of contact information for officials, eyewitnesses, and drivers.
In a car accident case, proving fault will require demonstrating four things:
- The other driver had a duty toward you. In this case, that duty would be to drive safely.
- The other driver breached that duty.
- The breach resulted in an injury to the plaintiff.
- The plaintiff suffered real injuries.
Mostly, fault is proven through documentation or even recreations of the accident. If you were not found to be “at-fault”, you can sue for personal injury or other damages even if they were partially responsible for the crash.
For example, if a driver was found to be 10% at fault and received re-compensation of $10,000, he or she would only obtain $9,000. Fault is determined based on police reports, eyewitnesses and any other evidence demonstrated during the trial.
This regulation is only in place for when a lawsuit is settled in court, which happens rarely. Many times, tort cases are solved before ever reaching a judge
