After an accident the first assistance you will require is from a car accident lawyer. But that’s not enough either. If you don’t know how the whole process works you will be left out in the dark. So let me demonstrate an imaginary case with multiple scenarios to take you through the whole process as a simulation. At first you have to know that are certain car accident laws. But how are they applied? Let’s find out with a demonstration:
Scene 1: So you were driving at late night. The streets were empty so you thought of driving a little bit faster. Suppose the speed limits are 30 miles/hour because of some tight turns. But you were driving at an average of 50 miles/hour.
Scene 2: Suddenly a corner comes out of nowhere and you couldn’t slowdown in time because of the high speed. So you hit a wall and airbags pop out.
Scene 3: You were not fatally injured, but the house owner of the house of that wall you smashed charges you for the damage. So both parties get a car accident attorney. And the attorneys set up a negotiation.
Scene 4: At the negotiation there are certain probabilities such as:
- You may have to pay for the damages you caused to that residence. If the owner agrees to your offer then he may withdraw the case.
- If your offer doesn’t suite the opponent then the negotiation will fail and the case will face a trial. Same thing can happen vice versa if you think your opponent is overcharging you.
- If you are found with alcohols while that accident then certain penalties will be added with it under DUI (Driving under Influence) law.
- If someone gets injured or killed then penalties will be added for that too.
Results will be determined by the type of damage and the amount of evidences found against the defendant. Usually cases end up at negotiations because nobody wants trouble. But if that fails then the case will face the judge and juries in trial like I said. If that fails too then the case may face several re-trials as well.
As you can see an accident case can go different ways. Abraham Lincoln once said that, “The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.” And in cases like this, you can’t predict what’s going to happen. So never lose hope, and make your stand.
