Any person who met with a car accident with or without fault might have experienced severe injuries, or sometimes death, and also resulted in damage to the car. However, any driver who is severely injured in an accident can file suit against the other driver for various reasons. If the accident left the person disfigured or scared, the faulty person must pay for injured persons medical expenses as well as those that a doctor feels and says that will arise in the future. The injured person can also get compensated for the emotional suffering caused by injuries.
If you are injured in an accident and filed a case against a faulty person and you have won, you should be compensated for permanent disability, pain, emotional anxiety, medical expenses and surveillance, lost wages, lost work or earning capacity, loss of consortium or society, and household services you cannot take care of while you are injured.
If the faulty driver was not negligent but reckless, they may have to pay more compensation. Speeding, excessive lane changing, not signaling intent to change lanes, changing lanes when there is no safe way to move, passing on an emergency lanes, and with drunk driving comes under reckless driving.
However, drunken driving cases are especially horrible and terrifying. An accident lawyer will tell you whether you should file suit, or not just against the drunk driver but also the server or business that gave the driver so much alcohol.
There are some special cases which are caused by a defect in the car of a driver. If a defective product causes the accident, the manufacturer is responsible for the negligence.
