Role of Personal Injury Attorney in a Car Accident Claim

Posted on:3/3/2013
If you have been injured in a car accident, seek the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney.


To win an injury case arising out of a car accident you have to show that the other driver was at fault. All you have to show is that they were negligent, meaning that they failed to use ordinary care in their driving. In some situations, this is fairly easy to do, such as the rear-end collision. There are very few situations where a driver rear-ends the vehicle in front of him, that the rear-ending driver is not at fault. The mere happening of an accident does not mean that anyone was at fault. There can be situations where the potentially negligent driver is able to show that his actions were reasonable and that something other than his carelessness caused the accident.

 

Your personal injury attorney will determine who was at fault for the accident. Sometimes there can be more than one person who caused the accident. If you are the driver and your carelessness caused the accident in part, then you may not recover for the injuries that you suffered against the other driver, even if they were more at fault than you. This is called the law of contributory negligence. A small number of states continue keep this old English law, which is really unfair.

 

Car accident claim are complex. Never fight a car accident claim without the services of an experienced personal injury attorney.
