Vehicle Accident Laws

Vehicle accident laws are a set of laws that were put forth to help people understand the legal implications of a motor vehicle accident. It is important for people to be aware of the various vehicle accident laws if they drive motor vehicles in the United States. Given below are common questions about vehicle accident laws answered by the Experts.

Would it be considered an at fault accident if an individual scratched a parked car?

If the scratch on the parked car happened when the individual was driving the moving car, it may be considered an at-fault accident according to vehicle accident laws.

Would it be considered a crime if an individual killed a dog in a hit and run accident?

Vehicle accident laws may differ from state to state in the United States. In some states like Missouri, death of a pet in a vehicle accident would be considered damage to personal property. Hit and run accidents which result in property damage may result in a criminal penalty. Also, it may be considered a class A misdemeanor if an individual leaves the scene of a vehicle accident without informing the owner of the property or reporting the accident to the police. The crime would further increase to a class D felony if the damage caused to the property was more than $1000 or was a second offense.

Can the owner of a vehicle sue the driver in case of an accident?

According to vehicle accident laws, the owner of a vehicle may have a legal right to sue the driver of the vehicle if they are found to be partially or fully responsible for the vehicle accident. The owner can sue the driver for the amount that is equal to the percentage of the driver’s fault in the accident irrespective of whether it is covered by the insurance company or not.

When is an individual entitled to pain and suffering damages in a vehicle accident?

An individual may be entitled to pain and suffering damages if they were injured in an accident and were not the at-fault driver. In some cases, an individual may not be entitled to pain and suffering damages if they were in a single car accident, were not the at-fault driver and no one else was injured.

Would it be considered a crime if a passenger in a car left the scene of an accident?

It may not be considered a crime if the passenger of a car in an accident leaves the scene of the accident. According to the vehicle accident laws of most states in the United States, the driver or operator of the vehicle, however, may not leave the scene of an accident until all the formalities have been completed.

It is very important for you to have enough information about vehicle accident laws if you have been in an accident. Vehicle accident laws may not be the same in every state of the United States. Depending on your state and jurisdiction, the rules and regulations may vary. If you have questions on vehicle accident laws, direct them to an Expert for quick and insightful information that can help you with your case.
