Proving Fault in a Car Accident

Car accidents can be scary. If you were badly injured, you may wake up in the hospital completely unsure of what happened. If not, you may not remember exactly what happened in the moments leading up to the crash. Do either of these situations sound like your accident? If so, you may wonder, how can I prove the other driver was at fault. Our Dallas car accident attorney explains how you can prove fault after an accident. Keep reading for more information.

Police Reports

Even if you were not badly injured in your accident, you should always call the police to the scene. When the police arrive, they investigate the accident scene. Police can evaluate tire marks and impact areas, to determine things like the speed of cars at impact. They can also assess if any laws were broken to cause the accident. After their initial investigation, police will likely have written an accident report of your accident. You or your Dallas personal injury lawyer can contact the traffic division of your local law enforcement agency to provide you with a copy.

Eye Witness Statements

Depending on where the accident happened and when there might be eyewitnesses available to provide you with statements. Gather the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident and available to provide a statement. Your Dallas car accident lawyer can contact them for their testimonials

No-Doubt Liability

Insurance companies view certain accidents as no-doubt liability accidents. This means in almost all claims involving these types of accidents the other driver is mostly at fault. Rear-end accidents are one example of no-doubt liability.
