More than 6 million car accidents occur in the United States each year. These accidents are the leading cause of death in the U.S., resulting in the death of more than 38,000 people each year, and over 3 million seriously injured or disabled.
Unfortunately, multi-car accidents are all too common, and many times it’s hard to know who is at fault. Making things worse is the fact that insurance companies may delay claims until they determine who was at fault.
This is where professional legal representation can help. We’ll get back to that later, but first, let’s discuss what to do if you’re unsure who is the at-fault party in an accident.
There are a few distinct reasons why it matters who hits who in a car accident. One reason, and the most important, is that it can help to determine who is at fault.
Another reason is that the amount of damage may be different depending on which direction the impact came from. If a driver hits another head-on, the damage is likely to be much worse than if the driver had rear-ended the other car.
Finally, the location of the impact can also be a factor. If a driver hits another car in the side, it is more likely to cause severe injury than if the driver had hit the other car in the front or rear.
There are a few different ways to determine who hit who in a car accident. Some of those methods include:
No matter how fault is determined, it’s an important factor in establishing damages and ultimately how the accident claim will be settled.
Car accidents can cause a number of damages, including physical, emotional, and financial damages.
These damages are all eligible for financial compensation. While insurance plays an important role in making things right after an accident, they don’t always get things right.
If you have suffered an injury in a disputed car accident and the other driver’s insurance company is giving you the runaround, you may be wondering how to get the best possible settlement from your insurance company. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
Insurance companies are not in business to make sure you get the most compensation. If you feel like you are not getting a fair settlement offer, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.
If your case ends up going to trial against the insurance company, a skilled personal injury attorney can ask the court to award monetary damages for your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. This is a monetary award intended to compensate an accident victim for injuries that have affected their normal everyday activities.
