I was involved in an accident that was caused by another motorist what possible compensation can I expect?
If the accident was caused by another motorist, you may have a right to receive compensation. Fault is determined by a consideration of several factors. Among the elements that are used to decide who was at fault are each driver’s description of how the accident occurred, statements of witnesses, damage sustained by the vehicles and the conclusions reached by police officers.
In addition, you may file a claim with the insurance company of the motorist who was responsible for causing the accident. The insurer assigns a claims adjustor to assess the fault of each motorist, the kind of injury you suffered and the damage your vehicle sustained. However, keep in mind that the role of the adjuster is to reduce the amount of compensation that is paid to you. Therefore, it is important to hire a personal injury attorney who can advocate for your interests, and secure the maximum compensation for your loss.
