Fault refers to who is to blame for the accident that occurred - and thus, who is responsible. Determining fault in an auto accident case is the key to being able to seek compensation. You must be able to prove that the other party acted in a way that was negligent or reckless in order to seek restitution from them. This can include a wide range of different things such as:
- Unsafe driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
- And more
If a reasonable person would consider someone's actions to be reckless or negligent, there is a good chance that this is what the courts will find as well. Our attorneys will determine who is to blame and then get you the compensation that you deserve following an auto accident.
