What You Need to Know About the Sudden Emergency Defense

May 28, 2021 - Car Accidents by

Car accident plaintiffs (i.e., the injured parties in a personal injury case) are likely to encounter a number of different defenses, depending on the particular circumstances of the accident at issue.  Among these is that of “sudden emergency,” which works as an absolute defense that gives the defendant an opportunity to avoid liability altogether.  Initially, the sudden emergency defense seems like quite a difficult barrier to overcome — after all, the defense depends on making the defendant appear to be the vulnerable party, which can win over juries.  If the defendant effectively redefines themselves as the victim, this could undermine your ability to secure compensation for the injuries you sustained in the car accident due to their negligent or wrongful actions. But our Tuscaloosa injury attorney is here to help you fight for your rights as the injured party.

Maximizing Damage Recovery for a Work Injury
