You were at your local coffee place when all of a sudden a car comes crashing through the building and hits you. You were driving your normal route to work when all of a sudden the driver next to you crashes into you and forces you both off the road. You were walking in your neighborhood when all of a sudden a car was on top of you. All of these accident examples have one thing in common; they were caused by out-of-control drivers. According to the state of New York, an out-of-control driver is a negligent driver.
If you fall victim to a driver who was not able to maintain control of his or her vehicle, any damages you sustained in the accident may be recoverable. It does not matter if they are economic or noneconomic in nature. If the damages are deemed legally recoverable in accordance with state law, you may pursue relief through legal means.
Pursuing civil actions against another person and/or his or her insurance provider is not necessarily easy. They will have legal representation on their side working to invalidate your claims or seeking to settle for the least amount possible. How you approach your case and who you have on your side could prove beneficial to you.
If you’ve suffered injuries or lost a loved one in an accident with an out-of-control driver or otherwise negligent driver, an experienced attorney may be able to help you fight for maximum relief. This can be done by taking your case to a New York civil court or by trying to reach a settlement through out-of-court negotiations.
