How is Liability Determined After an AccidentAfter an accident, how liability is determined becomes important. To receive full compensation for your injuries after a car accident, motorcycle accident, semi truck accident or other motor vehicle accident, fault must be fully placed on the other party. Determining liability after a serious car crash can be a stressful, combative experience. So how is liability determined after an accident? That depends on evidence found at the crash scene as well as the police and insurance adjusters.

Determining Liability

Oftentimes liability is determined by reviewing traffic laws to see if any violations occurred to determine if a persona acted negligently. There are four primary factors used to determine liability which is as follows.

Negligence

The most common way to determine liability is proving negligence. Negligence is careless or unreasonable conduct while driving which results in harm or damage. Examples of negligent driving is when a driver fails to yield the right-of-way to avoid a crash or by running a red light at an intersection. Violating the law such as reckless driving, speeding, or any other violation will most likely determine the driver at fault for an accident.

Witnesses

Gathering statements from witnesses to the accident often help to determine liability. Their statements have a very clear idea of who was at fault for the accident and can present evidence later on.

Photograph Evidence

Expert analysis of the crash scene or photos of the accident scene can determine things such as if any traffic laws were violated.

Statements of Others

If a driver involved in the accident admits fault, this can be used to assign liability. Statements such as “I didn’t see them coming,” can do a lot of damage to that person later on.
