We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable
In some cases, a defect in a wrongly designed roadway could be the actual cause of a car accident. As with all accident claims, determining who is liable can be a lot of work. The mishap may also occur due to a tire blow out as a result of defective tire, or probably another defective part of a vehicle.
Usually, it is an insurance adjuster who is most competent to determine the party at fault in an accident, often times with the help of a police report which includes the statements provided by the drivers and witnesses around the incident. What matters most in seeking compensation for a car accident claim is being able to establish or prove that the other party was at fault in the accident.
Examples of driver negligence include:
- Illegal turns
- Failure to yield right of way
- Not allowing for a safe minimum distance
- Defective vehicle
- Failure to signal

- Seek first aid
- Take detailed photographs of all vehicle damage, injuries, road conditions, traffic lights, and any other details of the scene.
- If you or anyone needs immediate medical attention, call the police and report the crash immediately. The responding officer will also create a police report of the crash detailing any damage, injuries, and other details that may be important to your case.
- In the course of exchanging words, make sure you don’t admit fault or apologize to the other driver. While it may seem innocent, doing so may potentially lead to you being held responsible for the crash before an investigation is even completed.
- Obtain the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and driver’s license numbers of all involved drivers.
- Obtain the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any involved passengers and witnesses.
- Exchange insurance policy numbers, license plate numbers, VIN numbers, and vehicle registration information with all involved drivers
- Immediately get in touch with your insurance provider to notify them of the crash.
Note: It is important you seek medical attention immediately after a car crash, even if you’re not seriously physically injured. You may be hurt and not know due to the adrenaline rush from the crash.
