Determining Liability in a Car Accident Claim
Work with Our Shreveport Car Accident Lawyer
Liability is an important issue in serious accidents where someone is injured
or a wrongful death occurs. Liability involves the financial and legal
obligations owed to the victims by the person who is proven to be liable,
or accountable. If the injured person, or family member of the deceased
is able to prove that negligence or reckless behavior of an individual
or other entity was the cause of the injuries suffered, that person could
be ordered by a court to compensate the injured parties.
Proving the Other Party's Liability
Proving liability in a car accident is different than proving liability
in a medical malpractice claim or other incident that causes serious personal
injury, which is something that a Shreveport car wreck lawyer at our firm
can assist you with.

Determining Negligence After a Car Wreck
Negligence means a failure to use reasonable care. For example, if you
are injured in a
drunk driving accident, the drunk driver was not using reasonable care when he/she got behind
the wheel of the car and drove. A driver that is
texting while driving is not using reasonable care for the safety of others. If it can be shown
that the accident, injuries or wrongful death would not have occurred
if reasonable care had been taken by the driver, then those injured may
bring a personal injury lawsuit or file a claim against the negligent party(s).
It can be a simple matter to establish and prove liability, or it can be
a complex issue requiring professional accident investigators or other
resources. There are many factors that need to be examined in order to
clearly show the court that another person or corporation is liable. These
are the skills of a
Shreveport car accident attorney.
