Most people will at some time be involved in an automobile accident. They are called "accidents" because they were not meant to happen.

Nevertheless, the law holds the responsible party liable and compensates the injured party. Recovery or liability can be based on negligence, recklessness, or product liability (see section on personal injury).

Some cases are relatively simple and the insurance company of the responsible party will compensate the injured party for property damage. 

Other cases can be more complicated involving police, the DMV, insurance investigators, and in some case the courts.  Drunk driving, for example, can involve both civil and criminal aspects, and is best handled by an experienced attorney that specializes in DUI cases. 

Cases that involve personal injury would be handled better by an attorney. Many attorneys will work on a contingency basis, their fee being a percentage of the final recovery if successful. 

Whether you are at fault or injured, don't let the other side dictate the direction the case takes. You may have rights and defenses you did not know about.  Find out what your legal rights are by talking to an experienced Auto Accident attorney.
