In Washington, DC causes and circumstances of an accident will affect what damages you can recover
Do not get us wrong, it is rare for an automobile accident ever to involve punitive damages because most people do not have an accident on purpose. However, the circumstances of the accident can affect the damages you can recover.
Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:
- drowsy driving
- under the influence driving
- distracted driving
- improper lane changes
- failure to obey traffic signs and signals
- failure to yield to pedestrian
There are, however; many other causes, and what caused the car accident may affect the compensation you can seek for your injuries. Some accidents involve those without car insurance. In these situations, you may still be covered in some situations.
