6 Types of Car Accident Claims and How a Car Accident Lawyer Can Help With Your Settlement

If you were in a car accident that resulted in injuries or damages, you may be entitled to a settlement. Understanding the different types of car accident claims can help you know what type to file. A car accident lawyer can help you secure a fair settlement by negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf. Your lawyer can help file any of the following claims:

Liability Claims Against Another Driver

If you get into a car accident with another driver and file a claim with their insurance, that is a liability claim against another driver. Your car accident lawyer can help calculate your damages and negotiate with the insurance company. Their goal is to help you receive a fair settlement to pay for your medical expenses, vehicle damage, and lost wages.

Wrongful Death Claims

You may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim if you lost a loved one due to another driver’s negligence. Our lawyers can provide compassionate support while guiding you through the legal process of filing a wrongful death claim. A settlement can help pay for funeral expenses and cover loss of income and other related damages.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims

When a driver is uninsured or underinsured, it either means they do not have insurance or do not have enough insurance to cover the damages they caused. If you have personal injury protection or coverage against uninsured/underinsured drivers, you can submit a claim with your insurance. Your lawyer can help you determine whether it is worth suing the at-fault driver.

Product Liability Claims

If you were involved in an accident because of faulty equipment, you may be able to sue the manufacturer. Your lawyer can help investigate whether a defective vehicle component contributed to the accident. If it did, they can file product liability claims against the responsible parties. You may be able to take part in a class action lawsuit if multiple people have experienced the same problem.

Rideshare Accident Claims

If you are involved in an accident while riding in a rideshare, you may be able to file a claim against the rideshare company. Your lawyer can help navigate the company’s insurance policies and procedures. They can help you file a claim if you qualify for a settlement.

Dram Shop Liability Claims

Tennessee has a dram shop law. This means if you are injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be able to sue the establishment that over-served them alcohol. If an inebriated driver crashes into you while you are driving, contact Reasonover Law to see if you could file a dram shop liability claim.
