Who Is Liable for a Car Accident?
When you or a relative are in a car accident, your first concern may be who is at fault. The driver responsible for the crash is the one that was predominantly careless or reckless. That driver’s negligence must have directly contributed to the crash. Had it not been for that motorist’s negligence, the crash would not have occurred. To determine and prove who was at fault for your crash and your injuries, our Orange County car accident lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation. We will obtain a copy of the accident report as well as any photos or videos of the crash. We will contact eyewitnesses and ask for their account regarding what they saw or heard. We may obtain these statements in writing or record an in-person interview. Depending on the complexity of the case, we may hire one or more experts, such as an accident reconstructionist or engineer. This individual may carefully review the accident and provide a knowledgeable opinion regarding what happened and why. When we are confident that we have enough evidence to prove who is liable for your injuries, we will pursue full and fair compensation through an insurance claim and/or a personal injury lawsuit.
