How Do You Prove Liability in a Motor Vehicle Accident?
After you are in a crash with a negligent driver, you can be certain that they will not want to accept liability for what they did. You should not be surprised if they outright try to say that you caused the crash when you are confident that you did nothing wrong. If you want to get as much compensation for your injuries as possible, then you will need to prove liability clearly in your claim or lawsuit.
A few pieces of evidence that can make it easier to prove liability are:
- First responder reports: Police officers, firefighters, and EMTs who helped at the scene of your motor vehicle accident should create detailed reports about what they saw. Our attorneys can request copies of these reports, which could reveal useful proof of liability.
- Eyewitness testimonies: The statements from passersby and other motorists who saw your crash can be powerful advantages for your claim. Let us know if you got the contact information of any eyewitnesses.
- Dashcam footage: Do you have a dashcam in your car? Or maybe the other driver had one? We can take steps to secure that footage and examine it for evidence of distraction.
- Medical records: Even the medical records your doctors make after treating you can benefit your car accident claim. When you first see a medical professional after a crash, either in the ER, urgent care, or elsewhere, make certain to tell them that you were in an accident and that is why you are suffering from new or worsened injuries.
