Car accidents happen every day. Sometimes they are due to mechanical failure or unsafe road conditions, but most often they are the result of driver error. While these occurrences sometimes cannot be avoided, there are circumstances where an individual or a business can be held responsible for a car accident injury sustained or the damage done to your vehicle.
There are a few different types of auto & trucking accident liabilities that can emerge from a crash. There are cases where a state will consider each driver responsible for their own losses, but when a personal injury results from the incident, the situation is weighed differently. The types of liability that can result from a car accident are listed below:
- Owner’s liability
- Vicarious liability
- Public liability
These different forms of liability determine who is at fault, and how much of the damages each party is responsible for paying.
If you’ve been injured in an automobile accident and it was someone else’s fault, you can take legal action against them. You don’t need to suffer alone. You can be compensated for your injuries because this could have been avoided. Call 312-553-2200 for a free case evaluation.
