Determining Liability In Your Case
A critical component to any successful personal injury claim, including an auto accident claim, is determining and showing that the other driver was at fault for the accident. Our investigators will evaluate the facts and circumstances involved in your case to determine why the other driver was negligent.
Some common causes the courts consider when determining whether a driver was negligent include:
- Driver exceeds the speed limit.
- Driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Driver fails to signal while turning.
- Driver disregards weather or traffic conditions.
- Driver disobeys traffic signs or signals.
- Driver fails to drive on the right side of the road.
- Driver exhibits intentional or reckless conduct.
You can trust our lawyers to turn over every rock to determine negligence. If there is any evidence of negligence on the part of the other driver, we will find it.
