No one expects to be injured when driving a car, walking across the street or while cycling. No matter how well prepared or compliant a driver, pedestrian or cyclist is, if another person acts negligently, a tragic accident can happen. Accidents caused by reckless or negligent individuals are preventable. Drivers, pedestrians, cyclists or any other person injured in a preventable accident may be able to take legal action against the party responsible for the incident.

By not taking any action, victims risk losing their one chance to recover funds for accident-related damages.

What does it mean to hold the at fault party financially accountable? In the legal system, at fault parties may face both criminal and civil lawsuits. At fault parties convicted of a criminal charge usually face jail time as a form of punishment. As emotionally gratifying as it may be for victims to see the at fault party criminally punished, a criminal conviction does nothing to help the victim. An at fault party found liable in a civil lawsuit is “punished” by paying the victim money for injury damages.
Types of damages a victim may be compensated for in a lawsuit, include:
- Medical costs – surgeries, doctor appointments, hospitalizations
- Lost wages – past, current, and future
- Disability – degree of disability and ability to function
- Pain and suffering – physical and emotional
