How do I know if the other driver is liable?
Negligence is a core part of car accident law. Under the law, drivers are required to use reasonable care. If a person is found to have acted in a negligent way, then they can be held accountable for damages. Basically, proving negligence is the key part of filing a successful lawsuit.
Even if the other party is obviously at fault, the law requires proof of their negligence. This is usually established through police reports and other evidence at the scene of the wreck. This is also why it’s so important to call the police after an accident. Even if you don’t feel like you were injured at first, not having a police report will make filing a claim later much harder.
