Any party that acted negligently and contributed to causing the accident may be held responsible for your medical expenses and other losses. Some examples of negligent parties in collisions include the following:
- Distracted drivers;
- Drunk drivers;
- Aggressive drivers;
- Drivers who violated traffic laws;
- Government entities that failed to maintain, inspect, or repair the roads;
- Auto manufacturers that sold defective brakes, tires, airbags, or other pertinent auto parts.
It is highly important to identify the correct negligent party so that you can seek compensation from them. The action you take to seek recovery can vary based on whether the liable party is a person, a company, or the local government.
