Liability Laws After a Car Accident
Ohio follows a “comparative fault” rule to determine liability after a car accident. This means that the driver at fault for a causing an accident is the one responsible for paying damages through an insurance carrier. In cases where more than one party contributes fault in an accident, an injury victim is still eligible to recover compensation as long as the other party is more at fault than they are. However, in these circumstances the injury victim’s percentage of responsibility will be reduced from their overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 10% at fault for the accident, the total compensation awarded to you will also be reduced by 10%.
Experienced in Multi-Car Crashes
Not every auto accident is “black and white” because not every wreck has only two cars involved. When one car hits another, normally it is fairly easy to determine fault. However, when multiple cars are smashed together, and one pushes another into a third or fourth vehicle, insurance companies have ammunition to push blame on another party. This means delaying or flat our denying your claim. You need a multi-car crash attorney for these types of matters.
How Much is My Car Accident Claim Worth?
The question of how much money your claim is worth is a subject of great controversy, speculation, and debate. It is generally impossible to say exactly how much money you are entitled to, save for the fact that you are entitled to something. The amount you receive is dependent on a multitude of factors.
There is no exact formula, no mathematical equation, no theorem or construct which dictates exactly how much you will recover. The more serious your injury, the more likely that your monetary award will increase.
Some issues which bear directly on your claim for damages include:
- The extent of applicable uninsured/under insured motorist benefits
- The ability to collect from the party at fault
- The at fault party’s testimony, sympathy of the jury, educational and demographic background of the jury
- Prior prejudices of the jurors
- Your own prior health history
- Prior injury claims
- Your ability to communicate effectively
- Your own personal testimony
Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?
Since most insurance settlements include in their agreement that they will only pay compensation out to the injury victim one time, once you sign an insurance settlement it is difficult to recover any further compensation even if you discover your injuries are worse than you originally thought. If you have already signed an agreement, you may still have options. Call our firm today to learn how we can help you.
