If I Didn’t Have a Seat Belt On When I Got in a Wreck Do I Lose My Case?
The simple answer is no, you do not lose your case, but it can reduce your recovery.
You are driving down the road minding your own business and out of nowhere a car hits you. You have a surge of emotions because you are hurt and emotionally upset. What do you do next? Usually, the first thing people want to know is should I talk to the insurance company after a wreck. Well, that depends.
I often get asked how someone not having a license affects a car wreck. First off, just because you didn’t have a license doesn’t mean you don’t have a valid claim or lose your case.
Ultimately, though, it depends on a few things:
- who was it that didn’t have the license;
- what were the circumstances of the wreck (i.e. how did the wreck happen);
- why didn’t you or the other person have a license?
These are a few questions that will help start this discussion. So, keep these and mind as we move forward. Also, assume for purposes of this discussion that a lawsuit will be filed, and thus, we will ultimately have to present this case to a jury will decide how much money to award and a judge who will have to rule on whether or not the jury gets to hear whether someone had a license or not. (Please note that only about 10% of cases go to trial, but as a personal injury lawyer, we always evaluate scenarios and cases as if they were going to trial. It allows us to come up with a possible percentage of success and value the case).
Now, let’s apply the questions and assumptions to a few different situations.Read More
