Auto accidents can cause tremendous losses. These include the loss of time, property, health and even life. Auto accidents occur because of elements including driver error, negligence, manufacturing defects and dangerous weather. No matter what the specific cause or result, a crash can turn a normal day into a terrible ordeal.
When you have been in an auto accident, you may have a sense of who caused it. Ultimately who is at fault can be complicated by who acted when and which laws governed the situation. Immediately after a collision the at fault insurance may want to take a statement to protect their insured not the injured victim. If the other driver was negligent, you may have to prove that the driver breached a duty of care to you and that the breach caused your damages.
