Ensuring the Right Party Is Held Responsible After A Car Accident

Determining who is responsible for a car accident can be tricky. The driver who is considered negligent is typically found to be at fault. This is not always a hard and fast rule. For instance, if an individual allows someone to operate their vehicle and that individual causes an accident, the owner of the vehicle could be held liable for letting such a person drive.If you have been in a car accident, call the Law Office of Michael J. Aed in Fresno right away so we can make sure the right parties are held responsible and you are not forced to pay damages for something that is not your fault. We are the personal injury professionals, and we can work to get you compensation for medical bills or lost wages due to time you had to take off to recover.

Proving Liability in Car Accidents

Lending a car to an intoxicated driver, an unlicensed/underage driver, or a previously reckless driver could result in the original owner’s liability. This means they could be accused of being responsible for the accident.

In other cases, it may be that poor road conditions were responsible for a car accident. Such conditions include:

  • Potholes or sinkholes in the road
  • Cracks or breaks in the road
  • Roads which are under construction
  • Poor or confusing street signs
  • Debris
  • Lack of a sufficient shoulder
  • Poor instructions by anyone signaling traffic

California is one of many states which uses the “fault system” as far as insurance companies are concerned. Insurance companies will not pay for anything until fault has been proven. More than one person can be at fault and blame can be shared among those considered responsible.
