Motor vehicle accidents are known to result in bodily injuries and property damages. The collision impact often determines the severity of the wound or damage. For instance, in high-impact crashes, a person can suffer severe or catastrophic injuries like broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, etc.
The crash can also cause a car to get totaled or suffer enough damage to require extensive repairs. In either of these circumstances, the driver responsible for the accident is liable to pay compensation to the victim. If the damage includes personal property, like structure damage, then the at-fault party would pay for the repairs of the building.
To get compensation from a fault party, the victim can file an insurance claim with the driver’s insurance provider. The victim can also get their insurer to cover the losses and recover the money from the fault party later. Finally, should the at-fault party and their insurance carrier refuse to pay, the victim can file a civil lawsuit.
