Understanding Car Accident Liability

Understanding Car Accident Liability | Pintas & Mullins Law Firm

In the event of a car accident, all involved parties are quick to blame each other for what has just occurred. While there may be instances in which the accident was caused due to more than one person’s misconduct or negligence, the reality is that most accidents have one driver to blame for the situation at hand. It can be incredibly frustrating trying to understand car accident liability, especially when the opposing parties are attempting to pass of the blame on you--which is where our Chicago personal injury attorneys will step in to mitigate the situation and hold the truly responsible party accountable for his or her mistake.

Several different factors determine liability following a car accident, and these are all noted in a police report taken at the scene. Once evidence is collected, any violations of traffic laws, photos of the scene, and evaluations of all involved vehicles are used to determine the guilty party. From there, insurance companies will file claims in order to obtain compensation for any damages sustained on your vehicle, injuries you may have suffered, emotional distress, loss of work and wages, loss of companionship, and more.
