Compensation for Car Accidents Involving Criminal Acts

There is nothing worse than being involved in an accident of any kind, let alone one caused by the negligent act of another. However, what if you were injured due to an intentional or criminal act? How does the process work from there, and can you receive compensation for the injuries you’ve sustained? Please continue reading and speak with a dedicated Bronx car accident lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about these injuries and how our legal team can assist you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What makes car accidents involving criminal acts different?

To start, when someone is injured due to the negligence of another, they often have grounds to file a personal injury claim and receive compensation. Fortunately, this is also true when it comes to intentional or highly reckless acts. For example, if you were injured by a drunk driver who was, rather obviously, breaking the law, you may hold the individual accountable both criminally and civilly. In other cases, such as hit-and-run collisions, you will also have grounds to hold the driver criminally and civilly accountable.

Can I receive compensation for an injury caused by a criminal act?

To receive compensation for such an injury, you and your attorney will have to gather and present evidence that proves you were hurt as a direct result of another party’s actions. As long as we can prove you were hurt due to no fault of your own, you should receive compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred. If you would like to pursue a claim for compensation against a negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous motorist, our firm is here to help. Just pick up the phone and give us a call.
