The Relentless Pursuit of Justice

Who Is Liable In Test-Drive Accidents?

If you are a driver and have driven someone’s car you probably thought what would happen if I got into an accident. Accidents can happen unexpectedly, and many incidents you won’t be able to react and avoid the collision. Here is some information that you may find useful before you get into the seat of a potentially new vehicle.

Dealership Coverage

If you are looking to buy a new car from a dealership, the dealer will usually have an insurance policy for all vehicles on the lot. If an accident happens that is not your fault, the dealerships insurance will cover the damage.

If the car accident is your fault, the dealer will attempt to hold you accountable. If this happens, your insurance company can cover the damage or prove that the accident was not your fault. Many dealerships treat test drive accidents like rental car accidents.

Also if there is an accident due to a faulty vehicle, the dealership will have their insurance cover vehicle damages and compensation for any injuries.

If you have been in a test drive accident and are injured, speak to an experienced personal injury attorney at Goldwater Law Firm, P.C.

According to the National Safety Council, traffic accidents that caused a fatal injury rose 14% and personal injuries increased by a third across the nation in the first six months of this year.

Deborah A.P. Hersman, council president, said cheap gas prices and a healthier economy may have contributed to Americans spending extra time on the highway. However, this does not entirely explain the rise in fatalities and injuries.

Roughly 19,000 people were killed in traffic accidents through the month of June. This figure does not include data from July and August, which are extremely high months for fatalities. Hersman states that these developments began in the last quarter of 2014.

More states are increasing speed limits and many drivers are distracted by cell phones and texting. The National Safety Council determined in a spring report that 25% of all crashes involve the use of a cell phone.

A few attorneys charge their clients based on a number of hours they work on an issue for their client. Others charge a fixed amount for dealing with certain kinds of difficulties. Many personal injury attorneys are compensated a fraction of the money a person finally acquires as a part of a settlement or trial. This is termed a contingency fee.

The manner this normally performs is the attorney consents to take the claim and his or her best to obtain an acceptable settlement. If a settlement cannot be attained, then the attorney will bring the case to trial and request a jury to determine what the client ought to be compensated. At the start of the case, the client concurs that the attorney’s compensation will arise from the money he or she obtains for the client; a chosen fraction of the amount amassed. When money is acquired for the client, the attorney then seizes that fraction of the money amassed.

Also, the client and attorney normally concur at the start of the claim that the attorney will compensate all the litigation connected expenses of the case until money is amassed for the client. The compensation of those litigation expenses, besides the contingency fee, arises from the money amassed for the client. These litigation expenses might consist of filing expenses at the courthouse, expenses for investigators, expert witnesses, and the fee for acquiring medical records. These expenses are unconnected and distinct than lawyers’ expenses. Expenses are to compensate the attorney for his or her time, expertise, and endeavor. They compensate operating cost the lawyer must reimburse up front to proceed a personal injury claim to a settlement or trial.

It ultimately is concurred at the start of a case that if the attorney does not prevail in acquiring any money for the client, then the client will not be indebted any costs at all to the attorney as well. Costs in a personal injury claim nearly always rely on the attorney being triumphant in acquiring money for the client. On the other hand, the client might still have to pay back the attorney for fees connected to the personal injury claim.
