How Liability is Determined for a Personal Injury Claim
Oftentimes fault is determined by reviewing traffic laws to see if any violations occurred to determine if a persona acted negligently. There are four primary factors used to determine liability which is as follows.
The most common way to determine liability is proving negligence. Negligence is careless or unreasonable conduct while driving which results in harm or damage. Examples of negligent driving are when a driver fails to yield the right-of-way to avoid a crash or by running a red light at an intersection. Violating the law such as reckless driving, speeding, or any other violation will most likely determine the driver at fault for an accident.
Gather Witness Statements
Gathering statements from witnesses to the accident often help to determine liability. Their statements have a very clear idea of who was at fault for the accident and can present evidence later on.
Take Photos of the Accident Scene as Evidence
Expert analysis of the crash scene or photos of the accident scene can determine things such as if any traffic laws were violated.
If a driver involved in the accident admits fault, this can be used to assign liability. Statements such as “I didn’t see them coming,” can do a lot of damage to that person later on.
How Will My Medical Bills Get Paid After an Accident?
