Following a car accident, there are a lot of things that determine who was at fault — various factors like the location and the speed of the accident can all determine the cause and fault. So, if you were injured in a car accident, how do you determine fault and whether you have a claim?
The first step is simply looking over the crash report filed by the officer who came to the scene. In a simple accident the crash report can be used to show fault without much additional digging. Some cases are more complicated, however, and require a skilled attorney to help prove fault.
In an intersection accident, for example, where one party may have run a red light, more than likely both parties will claim they had a green light. Firms like Hurst Limontes LLC go out and will take a look at potentially witnesses, as well as any potential dash or intersection traffic camera footage that might be available. From there, throughout the discovery process, the firm puts together reports and analyzes the responsible parties at fault.
