Understanding The Law On Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents in Vermont

Who’s Liable?

Every operator of a motor vehicle, motorcycle and bicycle owes a duty of care to the other drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians on the road. Included with this duty is the responsibility to drive carefully, obey traffic laws and behave reasonably while driving. When an operator breaks a traffic law or is otherwise careless, they are considered negligent. They will be legally responsible for the damages they cause. Generally, as a victim of an auto accident, you may recover financial compensation for the damages you have suffered because of someone else’s negligent driving.

This may include compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and permanent disability.

David Polow can help you with your legal options and to explain in detail the process for filing a claim, making sure all your medical bills are paid and recovering reasonable compensation.
