Elements of a Successful Car Accident Case
Through the many auto accident cases, we have handled over the past 25+ years, we have determined the several main elements that need to be addressed to successfully pursue a car accident lawsuit. These facts both demonstrate how a driver was acting recklessly and determine how much the injured is rightfully owed in order to fully recover from the incident.
The main elements of a car accident lawsuit include:
- Showing that the defendant did not perform the necessary duty of care while operating their vehicle.
- Proving causation—that the plaintiff incurred their injuries due to the defendant’s actions.
- Providing a thorough estimate of the defendant’s total medical expenses resulting from the accident, including lost wages, property damage, and compensation for pain and suffering.
An experienced Coral Springs auto accident lawyer can do the necessary legwork to demonstrate these key factors after a car or truck wreck. Your primary focus should be on recovering, resting easy once the case is in capable hands.
Common Injuries Arising from Car Accidents
Almost any type of injury may result from a motor vehicle collision. This is especially true for accidents that happen on the freeway at high speeds, or when a heavy truck or an exposed motorcyclist is involved. Some of the most common injuries, however, involve the head and neck. These are often particularly concerning because they may cause long-lasting or even permanent cognitive disabilities. Also, a blow to the spinal cord may result in paralysis. For people who work in very physical jobs, such as construction workers or postal workers, this may be devastating.
Neck and chest injuries are also common, with one of the most widespread examples being whiplash. In a sudden collision, a driver may be thrust into the steering wheel, while passengers may collide with the car’s infrastructure, causing severe bruising and fractures. Other common injuries include back injuries like herniated discs or other spinal damage.
A car accident victim may bring a negligence claim to seek compensation for their injuries. This involves four elements: duty, breach, causation, and damages. Duty means showing that the defendant owed you an obligation to take a certain level of care. It is widely accepted that drivers must operate their vehicles with at least as much caution as a reasonable person would use in a similar situation. Examples of breaching this standard include texting or other forms of distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, or failing to yield the right of way. The plaintiff also must prove that the accident was a reasonably foreseeable result of the defendant’s careless actions. It must not have been something that resulted from the carelessness of another party or something that would have been likely to happen even if the defendant had complied with all applicable traffic laws and otherwise exercised the appropriate care.
Damages available in personal injury claims arising from car accidents may span a broad range of items. Some typical examples include lost income, the costs of past and future medical treatment, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life.
