With the help of a car accident attorney, the benefits available under the negligent driver’s insurance policy can be used to compensate your financial losses due to a car accident, such as medical bills, property damage and lost wages.
A driver may also be able to file a lawsuit against a third-party, not including the other driver, if the third-party contributed to the accident. For instance, if a defective car part was a factor in the collision, the plaintiff may choose to sue the manufacturer. Other occasions when third-party lawsuits occur is when an employee of a government agency is responsible for a wreck or when dangerous road conditions contribute to a serious crash. In such cases, an individual may be able to seek compensation from the at-fault party.
