Proving another driver was at fault for a car accident is a difficult task to handle by yourself. That is why you need help from an experienced car accident attorney.
A skilled attorney can provide compelling reasons why the other driver was at fault by analyzing and applying relevant traffic laws and statutes to show that the other driver violated the law.
For example, if your accident occurred while cars were merging, your attorney may be able to apply a statute about yielding the right of way.
Applying traffic laws can be relatively easy with certain types of accidents, including:
Another way your attorney can help establish fault in an accident is by assisting you with filing a police report if one was not filed after the accident.
If a report was filed, your attorney can acquire and review it to make sure the facts are correct. The report may note who was at fault for the accident or if a traffic violation was committed.
These could be invaluable pieces of evidence to bolster the argument that the accident was not your fault. Also, insurance companies may drag their feet about issuing car accident liability reports unless they have a police report.
