Proving Fault in a California Car Accident

As with any type of accident, determining who was at fault is paramount to winning your case and holding the other party liable. It’s imperative to determine if the other person was negligent and caused the Southern California car accident, especially if you or someone you love was injured as a result of the crash.

In many instances, common sense can rule the day. A lot of the times, it is obvious as to who was at fault. However, proving that to an insurance company or a jury can be a whole different matter. What originally appears to be apparent can eventually turn obscure.

There are a number of places that you can turn to for help with your case.

  • First, if police were called to the scene of your accident it is of monumental importance that you obtain a copy of the police report. In many instances, police reports include the officer’s opinion of who was at fault. This could go a long way with a jury.
  • Second, speak with an experienced Riverside car accident attorney. He or she will know how to make sense out of the police report, witness statements and state traffic laws. A lawyer will know best on how to build a solid case for you and your family.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident, you should contact one of our experienced car accident attorneys at Steinberg at (800) 989-6385.
