Damages available to Soho car crash victims
The goal of pursuing a car accident claim is to recover monetary compensation. This compensation can help you pay for your medical bills or vehicle repair costs. If you are forced to miss work due to your injuries, you could also collect compensation for lost wages. While some states apply arbitrary limits – or caps – to the amount of damages you can recover in a car accident lawsuit, New York has not adopted them. This means a jury can award you the full value of your claim. Establishing the value is one of the primary roles of a car accident attorney.
Some of the most common types of damages pursued in a car crash lawsuit include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Lost future earning power
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
- Vehicle repair costs
Common causes of a car accident
Any number of factors could result in a vehicle crash. In fact, it is not uncommon for multiple factors to combine in causing an accident. However, some factors are more likely than others to lead to a collision. Some examples include:
- Fatigued driving
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Driving too fast for road conditions
- Reckless driving
- Vehicle defects
- Poor road maintenance
- Poor road design
While other drivers are typically at fault, the manufacturers of your vehicle could be on the hook for your damages if a defect causes the accident. Your attorney can advise you on how the factors that led to your crash affect your injury claim.
