Tort Laws and Car Accident Lawsuits
Following a car accident, drivers and passengers involved in the collision may be forced to deal with medical treatment for injuries suffered in the crash, repairing damaged vehicles, and replacing damaged or destroyed property. In some cases, persons may be eligible to pursue legal action to recover damages caused by reckless or negligent behavior behind the wheel.
In the event of a car accident, persons who are injured or have had property damaged by another person may choose to pursue a personal injury case. In order to recover damages in a personal injury case, the attorneys for the plaintiff will typically have to prove that the four essential elements of a “tort” case are present.
