When do car accidents result in personal injury liability?

After a New Jersey driver or passenger suffers a serious injury in a car accident, the first thing on his or her mind will be: How do I get the medical care I need to best recover and heal from my injuries? The second thing on his or her mind will be: How am I going to pay for all this?

The financial consequences of a serious car accident injury extend far beyond the costs associated with medical care -- which will be unaffordable for most people as it is. These costs will include lost income from not being able to work, the costs of in-home care, household services and more. Then, we must also consider the pain and suffering damages that every car accident victim will experience.

In a lot of cases, when a car accident is caused by another party's negligence, recklessness or unlawful behavior, injured victims can pursue financial damages by filing a personal injury claim against the party -- or parties -- at fault for the crash. Car accident scenarios that commonly result in personal injury claims include accidents caused by:

  • Speeding
  • Driver error
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to watch out for pedestrians
  • Malfunctioning or poorly maintained vehicles
  • Distracted driving
  • Highway or road defects
  • Defective automobiles or auto parts
  • Drunk driving

If you were hurt in a crash caused by one of the above factors, you might want to investigate your legal right to pursue financial damages in court. If successfully navigated, a personal injury claim could bring victims much-needed financial assistance to pay for the costs related to their injuries.
