Following a car accident, a victim might pursue a lawsuit to get the compensation they need. Frequently, such claims proceed under the law’s negligence theory. Drivers can breach their duty of reasonable care in many ways, like texting behind the wheels, running red lights, driving while intoxicated and speeding through an intersection.
Victims who file a car accident claim may recover many damages including non-economic and economic costs.
Economic costs include medical expenses, property damages and missed wages from the job because of injuries.
Non-economic damages are a subjective form of harm and include pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Proving the full level of damages is important which includes future medical treatment costs and many more.
