Injured in a Car Accident? Know Your Rights!

Victims injured in preventable car accidents have the right to hold the at-fault party accountable. Depending on the circumstances, these parties may include, among others:

  • Careless drivers who violate traffic laws, drive drunk or distracted, or otherwise act negligently behind the wheel
  • Negligent truck drivers and / or negligent trucking companies that commit safety violations
  • Manufacturers of defective products and auto parts that fail to function as intended
  • Negligent property owners, construction companies, and / or government agencies that fail to adequately maintain roadways, parking lots, or other driving areas with known hazards

In any situation involving a preventable car accident, victims who pursue personal injury cases have the burden to proving that a defendant more likely than not caused their accident and injuries. This often requires not only careful investigations, but also an accumulation of evidence and crafting of convincing arguments that prove they were negligent and failed to uphold their legal duty to take reasonable measures that keep others free from avoidable harm. For example, proving negligence may take the form of:

  • Proving how negligent drivers violated a traffic law (i.e. ran a red light, were speeding, or made an unsafe lane change). May require evidence from witnesses and police reports, testimony from drivers and others involved, accident reconstruction, or the use of camera footage, if available.
  • Proving motorists were intoxicated or impaired by drugs at the time of a crash, which may require collaboration with authorities to secure evidence from breath and blood tests.
  • Proving how commercial vehicle companies failed to abide by safety regulations that led to preventable truck or bus accidents. This requires not only an in-depth understanding of applicable state and federal regulations, but also investigations to determine how a violation occurred.

To prove negligence in an auto accident case and protect your rights as a victim, you can work with proven and experienced lawyers like those at Morgan & Murphy, LLP. Our attorneys have helped thousands of accident victims throughout the years, which provides us with insight into common causes of car accidents and the effective strategies we can use to prove fault and liability. We also leverage our resources to fight the insurance companies that commonly defend against these claims, and ensure they don’t succeed in skirting liability and fair payouts to victims.
