Assigning Blame And Awarding Damages
When reviewing the factors that led to the accident, insurance companies review the documentation of the event to determine which party is liable for the collision. Evidence of faulty conduct on one of these levels can affect the amount of money you receive:
- Negligent driving – Fender benders are often characterized at this level because they occur due to the carelessness of the offending driver.
- Reckless driving – Drunk drivers can be charged with reckless driving because they completely disregard the safety of other drivers on the road when they drive while intoxicated.
- Driving to intentionally cause harm – Acts in which drivers willfully create dangerous conditions may fall into this category, as the driver at fault may use his car to hurt another driver on the road.
Having suffered physical, emotional and mental harm, you may be entitled to compensation in recognition of these setbacks:
- Medical bills, ranging from initial treatment to rehabilitation services and therapy
- Pain and suffering, resulting from the mental and emotional distress caused by the accident
- Loss in earning capacity
- Loss of companionship, as a result of a wrongful death claim
