Proving Fault in a Car Accident Claim Case
Fault is the determining factor in any personal injury claim case. In order to establish the fault of the other party, you must be able to provide evidence that supports the assertion, such as:
- Police and medical reports
- Witness statements
- Photos and videos of the accident scene, injuries and property damage
- Expert testimony
Consult with an attorney to get started on an investigation into the circumstances of your crash.
Dealing with Insurance Companies after a Car Accident
It is extremely important to keep in mind that the opposing insurance company is not on your side, at all. They only have their own interests in mind, so you should do everything possible to preserve your own.
You are not required to speak to the insurance adjuster. In fact, it is well within your rights to tell them to speak to your lawyer when they contact you. Don’t believe them if they say otherwise. They only want you to say something that could be used to weaken your claim down the line. Don’t even give them the chance.
Furthermore, consult with your attorney before signing anything and be sure to consult with your attorney anytime you have a question or concern. Do not feel as if you’re being a pest; it is the attorney’s job to provide you with legal guidance. Plus, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
