How To Prove Fault In A Car Accident

If you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver and need a little guidance, you are not alone.

Distracted drivers killed more than 3,000 people in 2016 and injured many more.

You have a right to seek compensation for your medical bills and the other expenses related to your incident, but you don’t want to move forward alone. Having a caring team of personal injury lawyers in your corner is the only safe way to proceed through the complex and confusing legal landscape. In this guide, you will learn how to prove fault, why you need a lawyer and why many people trust the law office of Terry & Kelly. As lawyers for Texans, we have your needs in mind each step of the way.

  1. Potential Fallout of Distracted Driving Accidents: Most accident victims have a lot on their minds in the days and weeks that follow an accident, wondering how they will pay their bills and how long it will take to recover. You must also consider the long-term impact of your crash and what you can expect in the coming months. In addition to the pain and expenses of your injuries, you could also need a time out of work while you heal. You might even need to have ongoing therapy so that you can make a full recovery, and the expenses add up faster than most people would like to think. The strain on your budget can create stress and make it hard for you to see a way out. Knowing that you are injured can cause a lot of emotional pain for the people who matter to you the most.
  2. Proving Fault: Proving fault is vital if you want a shot at collecting the compensation you need and deserve. You might think this goal is hard to achieve, but a talented lawyer can prove fault in most situations. If you saw the other driver looking at a phone or paying attention to something other than the road, your testimony is evidence you can use at trial. The lawyer you hire can review police reports for use as evidence in addition to calling witnesses to the stand. If the distracted driver was texting or speaking on the phone when the accident occurred, subpoenaed phone records will reveal that fact.
  3. Getting Started: If you want to give yourself the best possible chance of getting the compensation to which you are entitled, we are ready to give you a hand.
