Car Accident Law Questions

The set of rules and regulations that overlook the legal aspects of car accidents are called car accident laws. The car accident laws can vary from state to state and the many different jurisdictions. It is important for individuals who operate vehicles within the United States will be required to be familiar with the various car accident laws. Given below are important questions about these laws that are commonly asked by individuals.

What can an individual do if the at fault driver’s insurance company refuses to pay for their vehicle damage in a car accident?

If the at fault driver’s insurance company refuses to pay for the individual’s vehicle damage, this individual will need to hire a local accident attorney and sue the at fault driver for negligence. This individual can also sue the driver for the injuries and for the damages caused to their car.

Is a wrong car accident report allowed to be amended?

According to accident laws, a car accident report can be amended by the police officer if there was a mistake while creating the report.

What would be considered to be a fair and reasonable settlement in a car accident case?

In most situations, the person(s) that were in the car accident will have the right to sue for up to 3 to 5 times the value of their medical bills.

What can you do if a police officer does not ask for the at fault driver’s information in a car accident and does not take any action against the driver?

If a police officer does not take any kind of information from the at fault driver in a car accident and does not take any action against the driver, you may either complain to the officer’s duty sergeant or inform the Internal Affairs and City Hall to have an investigation against the officer for not performing their job duties correctly. You can also file a suit against the at fault driver in the accident.

How can the relative of someone who died in a car accident acquire their belongings from the insurance company?

If someone dies in a car accident, their relative may request to be appointed the administrator of the dead individual’s estate if the deceased belongings were less than $15,000 at the time of death. The relative may go to a local probate and family court and request for all the paperwork that may be required for small estate administration. The relative may complete the paperwork and get it notarized. This person will need to make a list of things that belonged to the deceased individual. They may then take an oath at the clerk’s office that they would dispose the belongings as per the deceased individual’s wishes. The relative may also need to give the death certificate at the clerk’s office.

Can someone accept settlement for the damage of a car in an accident if they still are not sure of the medical expenses for the injury caused in the accident?

A person may accept settlement for the damage of a car in an accident if this individual is not sure of the medical expenses for the injury caused in the car accident. However, they will need to make sure that when they sign the release, this will covers only property damage and this will not release the at fault party from all kinds of liability to the accident.

Car accident laws cover many different aspects of car accidents. It may become confusing for you to be familiar with all the aspects of law. Depending on your situation, you may ask an Expert for information on the aspects of car accident laws that apply to your case.

  • I have bipolar disorder and had a one car accident approx one

    I have bipolar disorder and had a one car accident approx one yr ago in Riverside County...I WAS imply not paying attention. I was not DUI but the untrained sheriff mistook mania (becuase of the accident) for what he called "DUI" - he saw my pill bottles in my purse. VERY long story - short - my personal attorney, finally, after a year was able to convince the DA to have me plea out to a misdemeanor exhibition of speed with summary probation BUT initially on my "report" the officer did take me in and attempted to recommend DUI. As I am returning to the workforce in public ed admin and having been ill and having to care for my elderly parents, my attorney and I are unsure as to what exactly will show up on a LIVE SCAN as I WAS NOT DUI BUT I did plea no contest to misdemeanor speed ex. I do disclose the misdemeanor plea on each application.
