Proving Liability in an Auto Accident

It is important for your attorney to investigate these cases as soon as possible. After you have had your immediate medical needs addressed, you should start researching attorneys in your area. Negligence is usually the deciding factor in these cases. This means that we will need to provide sufficient evidence that the accident was the result of another driver's negligent or irresponsible behavior.

The most common cause of car accidents include:

  • Disobeying traffic signals/signs
  • Disregarding traffic conditions/weather
  • Failing to drive on the correct side of the road
  • Driving too slow or too fast
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failing to signal properly

5 Steps to Follow After A Car Crash

  1. Call 911, especially if anyone is injured.
  2. Exchange information with other drivers (drivers license numbers, name, address, phone number, insurance information, license plate number, etc.) and obtain information from any witnesses.
  3. Take pictures of the accident scene.
  4. Do not admit fault or say "sorry."
  5. Contact an attorney!
