Car Accident Liability

Smyrna Car Accident Lawyer - Proving Fault

Liability is the term that refers to the one who is responsible for the accident, in the case of personal injury. Whenever an accident takes place, the two insurance companies typically will conflict and try to shift the blame onto the other person so as to lower their own payments. When people leave their cases up to insurance companies, they often do not receive the full amount of compensation that they are entitled to. A good way to prove negligence is by obtaining the help of a Smyrna personal injury attorney from our firm.

When it comes to finding liability in a car accident, the police report is going to be a huge part of the evidence used to determine this. This evidence will be used to determine what percentage of fault each driver was liable for. What can happen in some cases is that insurance companies determine that both drivers were at some level of fault. This is where comparative negligence comes in. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you can still file a claim up to the percentage of fault the other individual was at. You may firmly believe that you do not deserve the percentage of fault that you were given. For this, seek the help of a skilled lawyer.
