What If the At-Fault Party Denies Liability?

There are certain types of first-party auto insurance that will pay out benefits regardless of who was liable for the crash. But if you intend to bring a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company, you will have to prove liability in order to recover monetary damages.

A primary focus of the insurance adjuster’s investigation will be finding legitimate reasons to dispute liability. Even if you’re certain that the other party’s negligence contributed to the accident, the insurer may still argue that you were partially at fault, which could lead to a reduction of your financial award. In the state of California, the settlement or verdict in a personal injury case can be reduced by the plaintiff’s own percentage of fault.

If the opposing party says you were partially or entirely at-fault for the collision, it is important that you have strong evidence to corroborate your version of events and to prove liability. This is where our Long Beach car accident attorneys can help.

Immediately after your free initial consultation, our team will conduct an investigation to uncover all available evidence of liability, causation, and damages. Because much of this evidence can be time-sensitive, it is critical that you schedule your consultation right away.

Below are a few kinds of evidence we may use to avoid or overcome a liability dispute:

  • The Accident Report: The police who attended the scene should have created an accident report. Your Long Beach car accident lawyer will evaluate this report to find out how its contents can be used to prove liability. For example, the report may contain statements from the parties involved and eyewitnesses, a description of property damage, and the officer’s conclusions about what caused the crash.
  • Video Footage: Dashcam footage and surveillance footage may show exactly what happened in the moments leading up to the crash. Such recordings can be invaluable if the other party denies fault. Unfortunately, this footage might be erased or overwritten within just a few days, so it is essential that you speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.
  • Photos: Did you take pictures of the crash scene? If so, you should bring them to your initial consultation in either physical or digital copies. Pictures may be used to corroborate your version of events or to disprove assertions made by the other party. It is also possible that an accident reconstruction expert will be brought in to determine what caused the crash, and photos can play an integral role in their analysis.
  • Fact Witness Deposition: Your attorney might depose the people who saw the accident to strengthen your case.
  • Expert Witness Deposition: The deposition of expert witnesses may be necessary if there’s a liability dispute and your attorney brings in an accident reconstruction expert to discern the cause of the collision.

Depending on the circumstances, there are many other kinds of evidence that might be used to prove liability. Each claim is unique, so the most important evidence can vary from one case to the next. Our car accident attorneys in Long Beach will conduct a meticulous investigation to gather any evidence that might be used to strengthen your case.
