Who is Liable in a Car Accident?

October 27th, 2016

Car accident
In all car accidents, it is important to prove who is liable for the accident. Several factors determine who is liable for the injuries resulting from a car accident.

Motor Vehicle Laws

Every state has passed laws regulating the way drivers must operate their vehicles on public roads. These laws are the result of legislative initiative and are important in determining negligence in an accident.

  • Negligence
    • Negligence is the failure to excercise a degree of care that, in the circumstances, resulted in harm or damage to people in a car accident.
  • Recklessness
    • The person knew (or should have known) that his or her action were likley to cause harm.
  • Intentional misconduct
    • Intentional misconduct is the willful disregard for the safety and welfare of others.


Who is at Fault?

Final determination of who is at fault is established after a police report is reviewed and insurance companies have negotiated. It is important to contact an experienced accident attorney for serious motor vehicle accidents.
