Every year millions of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents — many very seriously. In fact, an estimated 1.3 million die in a road crash per year, and 20-50 million suffer serious injury. Motor vehicle crashes continue to be the leading cause of injury and death in the United States for people ages 11 to 27. Sadly, many of these accidents are the result of negligent driving on the part of one or more drivers. Sometimes accidents are even caused by defects in the vehicles or obstacles on the road.

Finding Liability in an Auto Accident

Automobile accidents are generally decided using the law of negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay any damages caused by their negligence, either to person or property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to use reasonable care is the basis in most lawsuits for damages caused by an automobile accident.

Courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some examples of these factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Driving too fast or too slow
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to signal while turning
  • Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals
  • Failing to drive on the right side of the road

A driver may also be liable for an accident caused by intentional or reckless conduct. A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely, with willful and wanton disregard for the probability that the driving may cause an accident.

Types of Compensation Available in Car Accident Cases

If you are injured in an auto accident you may be entitled to damages. The term “damages” can refer to your actual injuries and losses, as well as any financial awards your case yields.

Damages you may be entitled to include:

  • Medical expenses including those incurred at the time of the accident and after. This can include surgeries, check-ups, and ongoing medical treatments

  • Lost income if you are unable to work due to your injury

  • Loss of any future earnings if you are permanently disabled or can no longer work

  • Pain and suffering

In order to be awarded the compensation you deserve, you should entrust your case to the experienced and well-versed attorneys at Shapiro Law Firm, P.A. Our Tallahassee auto accident attorney can fight for you.
