Default Car Accident

A car or automobile accident is an unexpected and unintended road traffic incident which may involve one or more vehicles colliding with other vehicles, premises or pedestrians and that causes bodily injury or property damage.

Thousands of people are injured or killed every year in car accidents, and car accident figures have reached such numbers that they are thought to become the main cause of preventable death over the next fifteen years. Road accidents are the most popular cause of personal injury claims, and whether you were the driver or passenger in a car accident, or even if you are a pedestrian involved in a car accident, you could be entitled to compensation for pain, suffering and injury caused by a road traffic accident that was not your fault.

Some of the claims that you may be able to make include:
  • Claims against an uninsured driver
  • Claims for serious injuries
  • Claims for medical expenses caused by a car accident
  • Claims for loss of income
  • Claims for defective vehicles
  • Claims for pedestrians involved in car accidents

If you are involved in personal injury litigation arising from a car accident, you will benefit from consulting a personal injury lawyer.

If no one was cited as a result of an accident, but I rear-ended someone, am I still liable for damages to their vehicle?

Normally yes; the one that hits from behind is liable.

But perhaps you have some extraordinary situation?
