LIABILITY IN A CAR ACCIDENT
PLACING THE BLAME IN THE PROPER PLACE
Any time there is a car accident, insurance companies have the job of determining who was liable. Liability refers to who was at fault for the accident. Sometimes the issue of “comparative negligence” will arise. Comparative negligence means that the insurance companies determined that both parties were partially at fault.
Even if you were partially at fault you can still file a personal injury claim against the other driver, provided they displayed negligence of some sort. However, you can only recover up to the amount that they were found to be liable. For example, if the fault placed on you by an insurance company was 30 percent, then you could only recover up to 70 percent of the damages in a personal injury claim.
Neither insurance company wants their insurance holder to be the one with the majority of liability because they will have to pay more. This is where our firm comes in. When you hire a skilled attorney, they will be able to argue on your behalf to prove that the other driver was the one liable for the accident and injuries. If you want aggressive representation to make sure that you are not blamed for another person’s negligence, then contact a Woodstock personal injury lawyer at our firm today.
