Car accidents happen every day, causing damages to vehicles and injuries to the people involved. Negligence is one of the most common reasons for car accidents. This places one party at fault and creates victims. Hinkle Law Offices are available to help those victims get proper compensation for their time, emotional distress and pain.
How Do Car Accidents Happen?
Driving is something millions of people do every single day, and not every excursion on the road leads to one. When negligence is involved, however, car accidents happen and people get hurt. Negligence is defined as behaving in a careless manner that has caused harm to another person. Running a red light and causing a car accident in the intersection is an example of negligence.
This negligence creates victims. A driver is required by law to use care when driving. When care isn’t taken, the victims in a car accident have the right to seek compensation for the damages and injuries incurred. Legal representation can help you with this process when you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident.
Determining Fault and Seeking Compensation
When negligence is involved in a car accident, the law requires it to be proven that clear fault can be laid and that the other party was behaving in a reasonably careful manner. This requires evidence to be gathered. You don’t have to handle that responsibility yourself. Hinkle Law Offices focuses on gathering the facts and creating the case to be presented.
