We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable
In certain instances, a defect in a defectively designed roadway could be the actual cause of the roadway accident. As with all accident claims, determining who is liable can be a lot of work. The mishap may have been caused by a tire blow out from a defective tire for example, or another defective part of a vehicle.
Usually, it is insurance adjusters who determine who is at fault for an accident, often times with the help of a police report which includes the drivers’ statements and those of any witnesses. What matters in a car accident claim is being able to establish that another party acted negligently in a way that directly influenced the accident.
Examples of driver negligence include:
- Excessive speed
- Defective vehicle
- Failure to signal
- Failure to yield right of way
- Not allowing for a safe minimum distance
- Illegal turns
