- A claim against the other driver and/or his insurance company.
- A claim against your own insurance company for uninsured or underinsured benefits (depending upon the language of your insurance policy).
- A claim against the other driver's employer, if the other driver was on the job at the time of the wreck.
- A product liablity claim against the manufacturer of your vehicle if the vehicle did not perform as designed during the accident -- for example, the seat back broke or the airbags did not deploy and these failures caused or exacerbated your injuries.
- A claim against the owner of the other vehicle (if different from the driver) for possible negligent entrustment of the vehicle to an unfit driver.
- A liquor liability claim against the restaurant or bar, if the other driver was served too much alcohol before the accident.
- A claim against the State or contractor for road conditions or construction area conditions.
Depending upon the facts of your case, additional claims may be possible. But, rest assured, our office will investigate all potential parties so that you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
