Who Do You Sue After a Car Accident?

Cars driving in traffic

If you have been injured in a car accident, you will likely find yourself asking questions you may have never considered before. You might be aware that you can pursue compensation for your accident injuries. After all, the attorneys on the TV and radio are always talking about that sort of thing, right? But, who can you pursue compensation from? Who can you sue after an accident?

Who Do You Sue After a Car Accident?

The law provides accident victims who have been injured due to the negligence of another a means of pursuing compensation for the harm they have suffered from that negligent party. The negligent party is who you can sue after an accident as they are the ones that can be held liable for paying your damages. In many cases, of course, it is the insurance company for the negligent party that will actually end up doing the paying out on your damages claim. In some cases, you may be able to try and hold the negligent party personally liable for paying your damages claim, but it is often the tough reality that an uninsured person is unlikely to have the assets and financial resources to actually pay out on any court ordered damages claim.

So, the question really becomes, who is liable for a car accident? This is true because whoever is liable for the car accident is the party you will need to go after to seek compensation for your damages. In many cases, it is another driver on the road that caused the accident. Sometimes, it is more than one driver that caused an accident. In other cases, it may have been a vehicle defect that caused or contributed to an accident. Other times, it may have been a defective roadway condition that caused or contributed to an accident.

If another driver displayed negligent or reckless driving maneuvers that caused an accident, you can pursue a claim against their insurance policy seeking compensation for the harm you suffered as a result of that accident. If a vehicle defect caused an accident, you may be able to sue the car designer or manufacturer for damages. This would be considered as a products liability claim. If a dangerous roadway condition caused an accident, you may be able to sue the local government or the entity responsible for maintaining the roadway.

In suing any potentially liable party after being injured in an accident, you can seek compensation for a range of damages you may have incurred, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Cost of future medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and Suffering
