What is an Auto Accident?

 

Auto Accident-an unexpected and undesirable event, involving automobile, resulting in damage or harm. Auto accidents—also called Motor Vehicle Traffic Accidents, Car Accidents, Road Accidents, Road Traffic Accidents (RTA in many police forces’ terminology) and motor vehicle accidents—cause thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of disabilities each year.

Immediately after being injured in an auto accident, you are thrown into an adversarial legal system that is complex and confusing. You may be lying still in hospital struggling to regain your health without knowing the fact that delays in the process can weaken your claim for insurance.

The Legal Proceedings for getting insurance claims normally involve 6 major steps that can be categorized as:

 

  • Preliminary file preparation and investigation
  • Assistance with your “no- fault” or other benefits
  • Documentation of damages
  • Final documentation and settlement demand
  • Settlement negotiation or lawsuit
  • Distribution and payment of the proceeds of your case

 

There can be many mistakes that can take place if you are directly dealing with your insurance companies. On the other hand an attorney expert in handling auto accident cases can guide you through the system to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation allowable by law for your injuries.

 

In case of any serious or minor automobile accident it is advisable to seek guidance of an experienced attorney in order to have smooth and streamlined proceedings of your insurance claims.

 

Types of Auto Accident

 

Auto Accidents fall into several major categories (whose names are self-explanatory):

 

Collisions can occur with other automobiles, other vehicles such as bicycles or trucks, with pedestrians, and with stationary structures or objects, such as trees or road signs.

 

The result of a side collision; most cars are not as structurally sound side-to-side as they are front-to-back and damage can be more severe to the vehicle and the occupant than at the same speed in a rear-end collision.

 

The result of a side collision; most cars are not as structurally sound side-to-side as they are front-to-back and damage can be more severe to the vehicle and the occupant than at the same speed in a rear-end collision.

 

In a collision between two cars, the occupants of a car with the lower mass will likely suffer the greater consequences.
