Common Questions Related to Auto Accidents

Naturally, you'll have a lot of quetions regarding your accident. Below are just some of the questions we receive most often. If you have a question of your own, please get in touch with our team to get the answers you need quickly.

Determining Fault

Many accidents involve two or more vehicles. And each vehicle involved could have contributed to the accident’s occurrence to varying degrees.

In the event of a single vehicle accident, it is important not to make a judgement about fault without first reviewing the facts. Often, there are causes that are not immediately obvious. One such scenario, are accidents caused by equipment failure. For instance, a tire that blows out, causing your car to roll over. Another scenario might be a pothole or other road condition that caused you to lose control. In both scenarios, the driver may be at fault.

Insurance Considerations

Whether or not you are insured can have a big impact on your potential outcome. For instance, in California, proposition 213 will allow the accident victim to seek compensation for their medical bills but prohibits them from being able to seek compensation for their pain and suffering. Further, if the other driver is also uninsured, or it was a single-vehicle accident, or a hit-and-run, it is possible that there will be no insurance coverage at all.

Vehicle owners have the ability to add uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage to their policy. With this added coverage in-place, drivers and their passengers can make a claim against their own policy. While it is an added monthly expense, this additional coverage is something we encourage all vehicle owners to add.

If you are the victim of a hit and run accident, your attorney will usually first explore whether the defendant can be tracked down. If successful, the insurances that the defendant carried will come into play. If the other driver cannot be identified, the matter will most likely be treated as an uninsured accident, and any uninsured or underinsured policies that exist (if any) will come into play.

Professional drivers like truck or taxi drivers are required to carry larger policies than your average commuter. This makes sense, because they generally spend more time on the road, and are often driving larger vehicles – increasing the likelihood of an accident, and the significance of an impact, should one occur.

There are 38,000 deaths each year on America’s roadways. If your loved one was killed as the result of another driver’s negligence, you may be able to seek monetary compensation from the at-fault party’s insurer, but the available coverage will feel insulting given the enormity of your loss. While no amount of money will bring back your loved one, money from a well-considered life insurance policy can ease the practical burden that may come with your loss – particularly if the deceased was a significant financial provider for the family, or if their absence causes a new financial burden to you, such as the loss of a spouse who took care of the kids while you worked, but now the kids require paid care.
