When accidents like this happen, investigators look to determine the proximate cause. Determining the cause of the crash helps the investigating authority determine if the driver involved acted negligently. If the driver was negligent, it means they breached their duty of care. In addition, if the accident resulted in injuries or property damage, the affected individual can sue the fault driver for compensation.
The preceding is in line with the accident fault system practiced in Maryland. The victim can choose to file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. Whichever one the victim does, they will recover economic and non-economic damages. The money covers medical expenses, lost wages, vehicle damage, pain and suffering, emotional anguish, etc.
Getting compensation is often complicated if there are disputed facts between the victim and the at-fault driver’s insurer. This is why it is essential to involve an experienced lawyer.
