When are You Liable for an Auto Accident?

Auto accidents aren’t just fatal, but they’re also inconvenient and can leave you stressed out about what you’re going to do and if your insurance company is going to be able to cover your expenses. When you get in an accident, of course no one wants to be at fault. An experienced attorney from Robert J. DeBry and Associates can help you settle your case if you were involved in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault.

We know that people can try and pin the blame on you, even if you were the car getting rear-ended. Here is how you can determine who is liable in an accident.

Police Reports Never Lie

When you get into an accident, make sure that you always report the accident to a police officer. A police report can prove vital when your lawyer is helping you gather information for your case. Most times, police officers only respond to accident involving an injury, however they also tend to stop at minor accident to. Your word plus an officer’s report can be the difference between winning and losing a case.

Rear End Crashes

It’s almost never your fault when you’re the one that got rear ended. In these accidents, it’s important to make sure that no one leaves the scene; the officer will see that you’ve been rear ended and you’ll almost never be at fault.

Make sure you also take pictures for your insurance company. This acts as evidence and helps your claim tremendously.

Typical fender benders can be resolved by simply exchanging information with the other driver, but more serious accidents may require more attention. If you have been injured in an auto accident, whether you’re in West Valley City, Utah or in St. George, contact our attorney team here at Robert J. DeBry and Associates. We’re here to help you get the compensation you deserve and settle your case to the best of our abilities.
