Auto Accident Liability Can Be Tough to Establish
Posted On behalf of Pfeifer Morgan & Stesiak on Dec 28, 2016 in Car Accidents
It is not always easy to prove another driver was at fault for an accident. Even if you explain to your insurance company that the other driver was careless, there is no guarantee your insurer will believe you and pay for your claim.
That is why you need to collect a lot of evidence to build a strong claim, especially the police report as it details what the officer saw at the scene of the accident and his or her observations about who was at fault. This can be one of the most valuable pieces of evidence for your insurance company.
You should also review traffic laws to find any that apply to your particular accident. These laws can help you determine who was at fault for the accident.
If you plan on filing a legal claim, you should enlist help from a South Bend auto accident lawyer.
Why You Should Contact a Car Accident Attorney
You do not need to hire a car accident lawyer to prove another driver was at fault for your accident. However, an experienced auto accident attorney has in-depth knowledge of traffic laws and he or she will know how to gather police reports and other evidence to prove your claim.
It can also be advantageous to have an attorney by your side when negotiating with your insurance company, because your attorney will be focused on your best interests. However, your insurer will be focused on its bottom line.
