What is a bodily injury claim in a car accident?
A bodily injury claim is filed against the driver found to be at fault, or negligent, in an accident. These claims are always against the negligent driver and cover any injured party, including the at-fault driver's own passengers, any pedestrians, or any other occupants of another vehicle involved in the crash.
Often, bodily injury claims are settled out of court, but they can be brought before a jury. Our car accident attorneys at Lord + Heinlein have helped hundreds of clients get the settlements they deserve.
