Proving Negligence in an Accident

Proving someone else’s negligence is not always easy. It requires evidence and facts to show that the other driver was at fault. Specifically, you must satisfy a four-part test to demonstrate negligence in an accident. The elements are:

  • The driver of the car owed you a duty of care
  • The motorist breached that duty by not acting as a reasonable driver would under the circumstances.
  • You suffered an injury.
  • The driver’s actions caused your injuries.

You may say that a driver on the road owes a duty to everyone else sharing their space to be safe and to not be careless. Things such as speeding and illegal turns would be negligent. You could also be entitled to compensation when the driver takes their eyes off the road to look at a text or social media.

However, you are likely wondering how you can prove it. After all, when it comes to the law, what happened is only a matter of what you can prove. Without evidence, it may not have happened at all. So many cases end up becoming a matter of your work versus theirs.

What an Accidents Lawyer Does for You

This is why you need an accidents lawyer on your side. Of course, the lawyer is only able to bring actual evidence to bear on your behalf, but the attorney would investigate your case. They know what they need to demonstrate to the insurance company or the court what happened in your accident. In other words, they could get to the bottom of your case in a hurry, interviewing witnesses and forensically piecing together the accident.

Proving who was responsible is only part of what an attorney may do to help you. Even after you show that you may be entitled to money, you need to get enough of it to adequately compensate you for your damages. This is where the insurance company can get difficult. Insurance adjusters are trained to look after the company’s interests first and not yours. This means that getting what you deserve from them will take someone who may know how to negotiate. It takes some courage to turn down an offer of guaranteed money, but it is what you need to do when the offer is a lowball one.

In the end, the insurance company may need to pay you for the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death if someone was killed

You can see how there is ample room for the insurance company to try to underpay the claim. If you do not receive a reasonable settlement offer after some negotiation, your attorney may need to file a lawsuit on your behalf. A court case could take years to resolve, but it may be the only way to either prompt the insurance company to be more reasonable or to get what you deserve if they still will not pay.

It is important to receive a full diagnosis of your injuries and receive thorough documentation of your injuries and the treatment the injuries received. This requires you to see a doctor, and you should preferably make this visit as soon as possible after the accident if you do not receive treatment at the scene.
