Many car accident victims in Indiana believe that when they are in an accident, the insurance company of the at fault driver, or their own insurer, will cover their damages and medical bills. However, this is not always the case. Insurance companies are businesses and, like most businesses, they are often concerned with maximizing profits and minimizing losses such as payments on auto accident claims. Because of this, a Lake County auto accident attorney like the ones at Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. are often crucial to ensuring that a claim is not denied or undervalued.
While dealing with insurance companies is an essential aspect of a personal injury case, it is often not the only source of recovery for an accident victim who is injured because of the negligent or wrongful acts of another party. In many cases, an Indiana automobile accident attorney discovers more than one cause of an accident, and/or more than one negligent party.Benefit of an Auto Accidents Attorney in Lake & Porter Counties
For example, if a negligent driver causes an accident while on the job, his or her employer may be liable for your injuries. Another common cause of car accidents is defective cars or car products. When a product defect causes an accident or greatly exacerbates your injuries in an accident, the automobile or other manufacturer may be liable for your injuries. Common examples of product defects that can cause or contribute to car accidents include:
- Defective airbags
- Defective tires
- Defective brakes
- Defective headlights
- Defective seatbelts
- Defective seat backs
- Unstable and rolloverprone designs
- Defective children's car seats
- Defective roofs
- Suspension failure
- Poor crashworthiness
