Who Is Liable in a Car Accident?

Car Accident Lawyers in Columbia & Charleston

Car accidents can lead to serious and lasting injuries. It is these life-altering injuries that make it so necessary to determine who is at fault, or liable, for an accident. There are many factors that can cause a car accident, but oftentimes one driver is more responsible than another. If another driver is found to be primarily liable, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injury.

What determines liability in a car accident?

To determine liability, you must uncover whether the other driver caused the accident due to an act of negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct.

Negligence entails careless or irresponsible driving, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to signal
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless lane changing

It is important to gather as much information as possible in order to clearly show liability in your personal injury claim. With the help of an experienced Charleston car accident attorney, we can craft a carefully detailed and compelling claim. You may be more likely to obtain a substantial amount of compensation to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages when you have a legal advocate on your side.
