Common causes of car accidents
While some accidents are unavoidable, many collisions occur due to the careless, reckless, or wanton actions of another drive which can include:
- Intoxicated drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Improper lane change
- Failure to yield
- Violating stoplights or stop signs
- Driving at night without headlights on
- Mechanical defects
- Following too close
To recover compensation on behalf of their client, an Isle of Wight car accident attorney and its team must establish that the other driver negligently caused the accident.
Damages available in an Isle of Wight County car accident lawsuit
If your attorney convinces a jury that the other driver was at fault, the jury must next determine the amount of damages that are appropriate in your case such as medical bills for emergency room visits, physical therapy, or chiropractic care. Other damages can include:
- Lost wages
- Diminished future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Car repair bills
No fee unless we win
At Rutter Mills, you will never receive a surprise bill for legal fees. We operate on a contingency basis, meaning if we do not recover money on your behalf, you will never owe us a dollar. We only recover our attorney’s fees if we successfully recover money in your case.
We believe in transparency with our clients. We will never increase our contingency rate during your case, and we will never charge an up-front fee before taking on your claim. We operate this way because trust between attorneys and clients is critical.
