How Can a Lawyer Can Help You in an Accident?

Accidents How can a lawyer can help you in an accident?  Let’s say the victim caused an event that happened because they forgot to do something.  But they didn’t do it on purpose.  Accidents happen every day. It’s defined as an event that occurs by reason of an act or omission of a person but without the element of voluntariness, or it happens by pure chance.

 

We see the results of unexpected events every day here at Odessa Law Practice because accidents happen every day.  Almost every person has caused one or two (most likely more) and it is usually not a big deal. However when an accident causes substantial injury, damage to property or death, then it becomes a big deal. This article will discuss accidents in general and how a lawyer can help you help yourself prior to, during, and after an accident.

Accidents

Who or What Caused the Accident?

This cause can be segregated into a root cause (main cause) and subsequent cause. Knowing the root cause of the accident helps one determine who to blame and who not to blame.  More importantly, who to make liable in case of the accident. For example, Mr. Aaa and Mr. Bee were arguing over the second floor veranda. Mr. Aaa shoved Mr. Bee which caused the latter to run into the flower vase on the ledge and knock it over.

 

Then, the flower vase bashes the head of Mr. Cee – who was just a passerby. Of course you will say that Mr. Bee was the one who actually touched the vase but common sense will dictate that the root cause of the accident was Mr. Aaa,  who shoved Mr. Bee, without which the latter would not have ran into the flower vase.  Click here to see how a lawyer can help you in an accident.

 

What Is Insurance For?

The next question – from a lawyer’s point of view is “Is there adequate insurance coverage for the injury, damage, or death?”

The operative word here is “adequate” because in some cases, the damage or injury is too great or the insurance is too small to cover the entire cost. In this case, the person at fault or if unknown, the persons involved will be made liable, subject to reimbursement later on. For example, if Mr. Zee’s car insurance only covers a maximum of $20,000 per accident but the repairs for the damage property is $25,000 then Mr. Zee has to pay out of his own pocket, the difference.

What Can A Lawyer Do?

The discussion above is pretty basic and in most cases an accident involves a lot more facts and issues so the case may get complicated. This is the reason why most individuals hire a lawyer, to sort things out and determine whose fault it is to begin with. Attorney Gerald Fugit will make sure that everything is sorted out for the insurance companies so you have:

• Zero liability or at the very least minimal liability, as the accused;
• Maximum awards and satisfaction on to the punishment of the person at fault, as the accuser.

 

What if it was Your Fault?

Then the more you need a lawyer. This is because you need to make sure that all your rights are safeguarded. In that, you are made liable only for what you should be made liable and not made liable for more. Attorney Gerald Fugit will:

• Explain your rights and obligations;
• Go about defending your cause to the full extent of the law;
• Make sure that whatever liability given to you is the absolute minimum.
