Proving Liability To Seek Compensation for Your Damages
Car accidents are usually due to negligence. Either the other driver did not take proper action or took the “wrong” action, but in both instances, the at-fault driver may be held accountable for your losses. In other words, the at-fault driver either failed to do something or actually did do something, that caused the accident and your injuries.
Proving liability is key to getting you the compensation you deserve for damages. A car accident lawyer with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will consider these factors of liability:
- Determine that the other driver had a duty of care to avoid the accident.
- Show that the driver breached this duty of care for some reason, such as speeding or reckless driving.
- This breach caused you to suffer physical and emotional injuries, which led to financial damages.
Our legal team will secure the necessary evidence to show liability. This evidence may include:
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Photos of the accident, debris, and damaged vehicles
- Red light or other closed-circuit videos if available
- Your statement
- Description and photos of your injuries
