Determining Liability for a Car Accident
When establishing who is liable for injuries and damages caused by a car accident, the law considers the concept of negligence. Drivers owe a duty to others on the road to avoid dangerous actions that compromise safety. Breaching this duty of care is considered negligence, and means that a driver can and should be held liable for any injuries that result from his or her actions.
Common examples of negligent driving include:
- Violating traffic laws
- Texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Failing to maintain control of car
- Failing to maintain or repair car's equipment
In some circumstances, it may not be a driver who is liable for a car accident. For example, some accidents are caused by faulty machinery or a product defect, in which case we can help you pursue compensation from a negligent car manufacturer. Additionally, an accident may be the result of improper maintenance of a roadway, inadequate signage, or poor road design. In these cases, the liable party may be the government agency or department responsible for the safety of the roadways.
