According to recent reports, there has been a significant spike in lawsuits over car crashes all over the United States. To cite but one example, car crash-related litigations have increased in New York in the last two years even though there was a marked decline in motor vehicle accidents in the city.
The reason behind this may be that more and more people are actually ending on the right side of these lawsuits. Again, to cite the findings from a 2015 survey, as many as 65% of people who filed car accident lawsuits ended up winning their cases.
According to a report published by the National Highway Traffic Society, 93 percent of car crashes occur due to human error. Normally, if you happen to be involved in an auto accident caused by another driver’s negligence, the latter’s insurance company is liable to pay for your damages. However, insurers will often shortchange the injured party by paying much less than he or she deserves. There could also be payment delays, disagreements regarding who was at fault, and other such inconveniences. This is where you can opt to file a car or auto accident lawsuit (also called tort or personal injury cases) to seek proper compensation for the harm done to you.
