Helping Car Accident Victims Recover Compensation
Every year, millions of people travel on the roads that run throughout Indiana. Sadly, some of these drivers are more responsible than others. Negligent drivers put every other motorist on the road in danger. If you are involved in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, the law gives you the right to recover compensation for your injuries. Let the car accident attorneys at Beeman Heifner Benge help you exercise this right and fight for the compensation you deserve.
What Are The Most Common Causes Of Car Accidents?
Auto accidents occur for many different reasons. But the vast majority of car accidents are caused by driver negligence. Some examples of negligent driving that often leads to car accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Distracted driving
- Driving recklessly or aggressively
- Failing to yield to other vehicles or pedestrians
- Failing to comply with traffic laws and signs
- Failing to look or check blind spots before making turns or lane changes
If a negligent driver causes a car accident, they are legally liable for the victim’s injuries. In fact, car accident victims can recover compensation even if they were partly to blame for the crash. You are entitled to compensation as long as you were less than 51% responsible for the crash.
How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?
A personal injury attorney cannot tell you how much your claim is worth without reviewing the details of your case. Many factors will affect the value of your claim, including:
- The severity of your injuries
- How your injuries were treated
- Property damage
- How your injuries affected your ability to work
- Your income
- Long-term effects of your injuries
- How your injuries impacted your life
Adding up the value of these damages will tell you how much your claim is worth. But every car accident claim is different, and calculating the value of damages is not always easy. For this reason, it’s best to talk to the personal injury lawyers at Beeman Heifner Benge to find out how much your claim is worth.
