Motor Vehicle Accident Law: Terms to Know

  • Comparative Negligence: A method of apportioning fault when more than one person caused an accident.
    Vicarious Liability: A legal theory which apportions blame for an accident to someone who wasn’t directly involved. For example, an employer may be vicariously liable for the accidents a driver caused while one the job.
  • Collision Coverage: Automobile insurance coverage that reimburses drivers for the damage sustained in a collision.
  • Comprehensive Coverage: Automobile insurance coverage that reimburses drivers for the damage sustained outside of a collision.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Automobile insurance coverage that reimburses drivers for the damage sustained in a collision with another driver who does not have insurance, or whose insurance coverage is not sufficient to pay for all the damages.
  • Motor Vehicle Accident Law: Insurance Defense
  • Many car accident attorneys actually work exclusively in “insurance defense.” This means that they have contracted with an insurance company to defend their insureds against lawsuits arising out of car accidents.

However, car accident victims who wish to sue the other parties to the car accident have to hire their own attorneys, which are typically listed as auto accident attorneys, car accident attorneys, or simply “personal injury lawyers.” These lawyers can help you by reviewing documents related to the accident and gathering evidence.

The reason for death is described as blunt force injuries and the method of death was classified as accidental.
