Even though the cause may seem obvious, determining fault in a car accident isn’t always easy. Many times, there is an in-depth investigation and accident reconstruction required. A jury will decide who is at fault based on information collected from the parties involved, their legal representatives, their insurance claim adjusters, and the police officers who responded to the accident.
Examples of driving without care can include:
- Disobeying road rules, signs, and signals
- Distraction due to phone usage, texting, radio, etc.
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Unsafe lane changes and turns
- Driving too fast during certain weather conditions
- Cutting off another vehicle
Our experienced Florida car accident attorneys at Harris Guidi Rosner, P.A. can help determine what party is at fault, their duty of care, their breach of duty, the cause of the accident and pursue compensation for the injured party.
Evidence that can help determine fault includes:
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Expert witness reports
- Photo or video evidence from the scene
- Damage reports
In some cases, the auto manufacturer or auto part manufacturer could be found at fault if a part of the car was unsafe and was not reported or addressed.
The State of Florida requires no-fault insurance. This means, whether or not you are at fault for an accident, you have a policy of insurance available to you to seek treatment for your injuries. To claim this benefit, you must have mandatory personal injury protection (a $10,000 minimum) and seek medical attention within 14 days of the accident.
