Car Accident Laws

Car accident laws are a set of laws that overlook the legal issues of a car accident. These laws help determine who may be responsible for the accident and set forth rules and regulations about how people may claim damages in an accident. Individuals may have a lot of questions regarding car accident laws to which they may not find answers easily. Given below are common questions about car accident laws answered by the Experts.

Can the relatives of an individual who was injured in a car accident and is not lucid, collect their personal belongings from the car?

In most situations, the towing company may not allow relatives of a person injured in a car accident to collect their personal belongings from the car. The injured individual may have to collect their personal belongings on their own from the towing company. This is because the towing company may be worried about liability issues if it gives away the injured person’s belongings to their relatives.

How can an individual transfer the assets of their parent who died in a car accident into their own name if the parent did not leave a will?

According to car accident laws, if an individual’s parent dies in a car accident without a will, the individual may have to transfer the parent’s assets to their name through the probate process. The individual may have to contact the probate court in the county where the parent lived and fill the disposition of personal property without administration form. If the parent had a Scot trade account and had named the individual the beneficiary, the individual may show the parent’s death certificate to get the account transferred into their name..

Can an individual sue a city for a car accident that was caused due to high grass blocking their vision?

Car accident laws may differ from state to state in the U.S. In some states like New Orleans, an individual may not be able to sue the city for a car accident that was caused due to high grass blocking vision if they had pulled out into oncoming traffic. This is because it would be stated that the individual went into the direction of the traffic knowing the risk of oncoming traffic in spite of the high grass blocking their vision.

Who would be responsible for taking medical decisions for an individual if they have been critically injured in a car accident and is unable to take these decisions?

In most situations, an individual’s power of attorney or medical directive may get activated if they have been critically injured in a car accident and cannot take medical decisions on their own. If there is no such directive or power of attorney, the individual’s closest family member may get the power of attorney by default to take medical decisions for the individual. If a third party wants to challenge the family member’s decisions, they may do so by filing a petition for adult guardianship in court.

Can an individual sue a cab company if the cab driver is the at-fault party in a car accident?

If a cab driver was the at-fault party in a car accident, the individual may contact the cab company and ask them to pay completely for the damages that were caused to the individual’s vehicle due to the accident. The individual may also inform the company that a civil lawsuit will be filed against them if they do not pay for the damages. If the company refuses to pay, the individual may file a civil lawsuit against the company.

Car accident laws may be different in different parts of the United States. The procedures and penalties regarding car accidents may also change depending on your situation and the extent of damage caused in the accident. If you need to know more about the laws, it may not be a practical option for you to hire an attorney just to get a few questions answered. Put your queries to an Expert instead who can offer helpful and insightful information about car accident laws in a quick and cost-effective manner.
