Defective Car Accidents: What You Need to Know

If you have been in a car accident, you may have discovered that defective vehicles are occasionally the primary cause of injuries and damages victims can face. Unfortunately, this makes handling car accident claims a little different, at least in comparison to other processes. Instead of filing a claim against another driver, you may be taking legal action against the vehicle company, manufacturer, designer, or another similar party. However, not all hope is lost when you get into a car accident due to a defective vehicle.

When a company is responsible for your injuries and losses, we encourage you to work with a car accident lawyer. By working with an attorney, like one from the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP you are far more likely to receive fair compensation and hold that company accountable for its irresponsibility. You deserve to be treated fairly and to have your expenses covered by the liable parties, including when these individuals are part of a larger company. Please don’t hesitate to contact our team if you want to retain legal support and representation.

What Compensation Can You Collect After a Defective Car Accident?

Getting into a car accident can mean you suffer severe injuries and costly repairs, but you can hold the liable parties accountable to receive compensation. Different damages can qualify for payment in your car accident claims, including the following:

  • Attorney fees
  • Medical bills
  • Future medical care
  • Physical and occupational therapies
  • Ambulance costs
  • Mental health assistance
  • Property damage
  • Loss of wages
  • Changes in wage-earning potential
  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Decrease in quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Other losses may also apply, but the damages that qualify for compensation depend on the circumstances. For additional assistance determining what damages qualify, an estimate on the value of your claims, and information about increasing the payment you can receive, we suggest you work with a lawyer. Contact our Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP team to retain our assistance during this difficult time.

How Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help You With Your Claims?

Whenever someone gets involved in a legal battle, we encourage them to work with a qualified and knowledgeable attorney in the applicable field. In the case of a defective vehicle, we recommend you work with a car accident lawyer for support during the legal process. Your attorney will have the skills to point you in the right direction and allow you to move forward confidently. 

A lawyer from the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP can communicate with insurance companies and legal representatives on your behalf, complete and file paperwork, strategize next steps tailored to your needs and circumstances, and much more. We encourage you to avoid representing yourself during legal matters, as this puts you at risk of unfair representation and reduced compensation. Insurance companies will also mistreat clients who lack legal representation because they believe they can easily take advantage of them.

We recommend you contact us as soon as possible, as this will allow our team sufficient time to collect and analyze evidence, gain an understanding of your needs, build arguments in your favor, and increase the value of your case. This will also help decrease the time you spend within the court system. Don’t hesitate to contact the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP today.
