You’ve probably heard stories about people filing lawsuits over vehicle wrecks just to get money. Usually, the stereotype involves somebody showing up in court wearing a neck brace when they hadn’t been wearing one at any point before going to court. Unfortunately, this common media portrayal of how car accident victims game the system is not usually the case. It’s quite condescending to the many people who are injured by negligent drivers every year.
When somebody is injured in a car wreck because another driver was negligent, they sometimes also end up having to pay for all of the medical expenses and property damage that the wreck caused on their own. When you consider the fact that someone who is negligent can cause such a great deal of damage and the fact that they could simply walk away from it without helping out at all if it weren’t for the civil courts, you can see why people sue. Sometimes, it’s the only way the victims of negligent drivers have to handle the costs that they have to deal with because of the wreck.
There are plenty of cases where somebody is very seriously injured or even killed by a driver who was negligent and who was not paying attention to what they were doing, to what was going on around them. Negligent drivers do not show the courtesy and concern that could be expected of any normal individual in the same situation that led to an accident. This is exceptionally dangerous, particularly if there are no consequences to it. The legal system will go after drivers who injure someone while they are drunk or if they’re reckless. Unfortunately, this doesn’t really do anything for the people who are actually injured.
Suing drivers who are negligent and injure other people on the road is usually the best recourse for people who are the victims of negligence.
