Frequently Asked Questions
How can I prove who was at fault?
After an accident, the police will be called to the scene to file an accident report. Police may or may not issue tickets or citations to the party at fault on the scene. Also, certain vehicles now have electronic data recorders that contain data leading up to the time of the crash and can be used to prove the other driver was speeding or not using a turn signal. Eyewitness accounts can also help prove your case in court and are important in establishing guilt. An experienced car accident attorney will be familiar with the best way to gather evidence to convince the court.
What if I was partially at fault?
If you were partly responsible for the accident, you may still be entitled to pursue legal action against the other driver. In cases where both drivers were at fault, the court will assign a comparative percentage of the blame, and that amount will be applied to the damages that are awarded. For instance, if the court finds that you’re 20 percent at fault and your case is worth $100,000, the other driver would only be responsible for paying $80,000.
What information do I need to help prove my claim?
The first thing you should do after a serious car accident is to seek medical treatment. Once you are stable and working towards recovery, you can begin collecting important documentation. You should obtain a copy of the police report from the accident, including the other driver’s name, license, and insurance information. If other vehicles were involved, you should get their information as well. Photographs or videos of the wreckage can be useful in establishing a claim, and you should also take pictures of the injuries you sustained. Medical records can be used to convince the court of the serious injuries the other driver caused, and all of this information will be useful to your lawyer.
