Vehicles are important in our lives, whether it is driving to work or transporting goods from one point to another. However, using vehicles makes us prone to accidents. There is an average of 40 000 fatal accidents in the United States every year. With the high number of accidents occurring every day, it is vital to know how you can protect your rights in the event you are involved in an accident.
A person who causes an accident is liable for all property damage, physical harm, and all damages resulting from accidents. Car laws vary from one state to another. Typically, a car insurance policy pays for the damage up to a specific limit. No-fault states have regulations that require car insurance to cover all medical bills and out of pocket expenses regardless of the driver that caused the crash.
