Continue reading to learn what you need to know about taking legal action after an accident.

Important Accident Laws & Regulations By State

Limits on the amount of compensation available after an accident and the statute of limitations to file suit can differ from state to state. Additionally, state specific fault & no-fault laws will inform your legal strategy after an incident. The specific details of the accident you were involved in will directly influence the legal advice you receive from your counsel. Various details (whether a motorist was uninsured, a driver was drunk, distracted or impaired, what the road conditions were at the time of the accident, the condition of traffic lights, if defective parts played a role, whether any pedestrians were hurt) just to name a few, can determine the course of your case.

However, the accident laws by state will provide the starting point in determining what potential legal action may look like and what type of damages you may be able to seek under the law. While we recommend as a starting point having a familiarity with your state's regulations, your legal team will be well versed and able to advise you of the exact requirements for a successful litigation on your behalf.
