drivers examine car accident damage

Proving Fault in an Auto Accident

When you get in an auto accident with another driver, common sense may tell you that they are at fault, but you may not know exactly which rules of the road they violated that caused the crash. This is important information to get if you wish to be compensated for injuries you suffer during an accident.

When you hire a lawyer to represent you after a car accident, it’s important to get all the information you cna on the accident and the people involved in the accident. This is why you should hire a car accident lawyer as early in the process as possible. A good lawyer will make sure to pull the police report for the accident, consult local traffic laws, investigate the crash scene, and get statements from witnesses.

In some accidents, it’s clear which driver is at fault under the law. This includes:

  • Accidents where one car rear-ends another
  • Accidents when making a left turn
  • Accidents where one driver is drunk or distracted
  • Accidents where one driver runs a stop sign or red light

Even in these instances, however, it’s a good idea to hire a lawyer for your case. If the other driver is at fault, you still must have evidence of this and be capable of presenting your case in a courtroom in order to expect any compensation.
