Factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, excessive speed, distracted driving and negligence often cause traffic incidents. These auto accidents usually results in injuries, or worse death. It is then necessary that motorists practice certain precautionary measures and follow traffic laws, taking into consideration the welfare of other people traversing the road.

In this case, authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to determine liability. If the investigation proves that a negligent party has disregarded the safety of other motorists, the victims and their families may have the right to pursue a lawsuit against any at-fault party.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
