Who Is Responsible for an Auto Accident?
When it comes to determining who is responsible for the damage caused by an auto accident, several factors come into play. Did human error lead to the crash? Who committed the error? Were drugs or alcohol involved? Did a third-party share culpability? These are just a few of the factors that can play a role in who is liable for damages in a particular crash. Because there are so many factors in a car accident claim, many people find choose to work with a qualified Redlands accident lawyer.
Our Redlands car accident attorney often has to examine several factors before pursuing a claim.
- Who was at-fault for the crash?
- Was that driver insured?
- Did a failed auto part lead to the crash?
- Was the part manufacturer negligent in the making of the failed part?
Answers to these questions will help determine the proper way to file a claim for compensation. To arrive at these answers, the injured will need evidence. This evidence often includes, but is not limited to:
- Pictures of the crash site
- Witness statements
- Medical records
- Police reports
Depending on the circumstances, the injured party will file a claim with the other driver's insurance or his or her own insurance. However, in both instances you cannot simply rely on the settlement proposed by the insurance company. That's why we recommend working with a Redlands car accident attorney at Dolen, Tucker, Tierney & Abraham, will help you file your claim.
