Common Types of Negligence in a Car Accident Case

The most common acts of negligence that serve as grounds for a car crash case include:

  • Tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Fatigued driving
  • Texting and driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Weaving in and out of traffic

This list is non-exhaustive; there are almost countless ways in which a driver may be negligent and cause an accident. If you have any reason to suspect negligence on the other driver’s end, don’t wait to reach out to a Dover car accident lawyer. Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. offers free consultations with no strings attached. Call (603) 871-4144 today to discuss your case with a legal professional in a pressure-free environment.

Potential Compensation and How to Recover It

Accident victims can recover compensation for any damages that directly resulted from the crash in which they were injured. They will, however, need to have evidence to prove them. For example, if you suffered a head or brain injury in a crash, you may be compensated for any medical bills related to that injury. (The sooner you visit the doctor, the more likely your medical expenses will be covered, as the at-fault party will have a hard time claiming no real harm was done.)

Other damages you may be compensated for include but are not limited to:

  • Cost of medication
  • Repairs to your vehicle
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning potential
  • Short- or long-term disability accommodations

Damages that do not have a direct economic impact, such as pain and suffering, are considered “non-economic” damages. While accident victims have the right to represent themselves, it is best to retain the help of a car accident attorney to maximize your economic and non-economic damages. All too often, accident victims ask for too little compensation or unintentionally wreck their case by trying to comply with greedy insurance adjusters.
