Exceptional Circumstances in Automobile Accident Cases

By: Lala C. Ballatan

Not everyone may be aware that litigation processes forautomobile accidents are not that simple.?Although some cases are already cut and dried, and no extraordinary orexceptional issue ever comes up, most cases still involve complicated matters.

These are but some of the automobile accident cases whereinexceptional circumstances tend to make the whole litigation somewhat sethurdles for the victims involved.

Auto accidentsinvolving leased cars – there is a ruling that when a leased vehicle isinvolved in an accident and there are credible evidences to show that itsoperator is at fault and is going to be responsible for the victim/victims ofthe accident, the owner of the leased vehicle also becomes a responsible party.

The issue involved is that the owner becomes responsible forthe negligent actions of his/her vehicle's operator, especially when he/she haspermitted the vehicle's use by the operator.

This issue becomes an extremely significant issue wheneverthe liable party's vehicle is leased.

Nowadays, many motor vehicles, like cars and trucks, arebeing driven on the roads, of Los Angeles County, for example, based on a leasesystem. An experienced and efficient lawyer on auto accidents litigation wouldnot just be contented with knowing the name indicated in the registrationpapers of the vehicle. He/she will also delve deeper and find out if an exactowner exists.

Doing this is important, especially in cases of bigcorporations leasing vehicles. Usually the vehicle's registration is justsimply named after its driver. However, the real owner of the car, truck orotherwise is a large corporation with infinite and substantial insurancecoverage.

Auto accidentsinvolving business vehicles – in a hubbub place like the Los AngelesCounty, there seems to be no space for a slowing down or sleep for the people.It seems that all day round, everyone is busy with work, and thus, everyone isalong the roads with their cars and other vehicular means of transportation.

Most of these vehicles, even if there is no indication ofit, are being driven for business purposes. In automobile accidents, this kindof matter is an important thing to research about.

Most vehicle for business purposes do not care forannouncing that they are on business as such, if you have been involved invehicle accidents, an expert auto accident attorney would know how to dig forhidden facts or facts that are not obvious or readily available.

Knowing if the vehicle at fault is being driven for businesspurposes at the time of the accident is important information. Theemployer/company of the vehicle's driver can be declared as "vicariouslyliable" for his/her or their employee's negligence in driving their autowhile on duty.

This fact must be fully explored especially for severelyinjured victims whose damages incurred have exceeded the insurance declared onthe company vehicle.

Auto accidentsinvolving vehicle defects – any vehicle accidents wherein the main cause isthe actual vehicle's defective parts and design must be thoroughlyinvestigated. The vehicle's manufacturer or parts manufacturer can be heldliable for these circumstances.

Meanwhile, there is also liability for the road/highway'simproper and poor design, maintenance and construction.
