Intersection accident attorney
Knowing who’s at fault in a car accident can be a complicated issue, especially if the accident takes place in an intersection. Even if the other party was clearly to blame by either ignoring stop signs or traffic lights, proving it can be more difficult than you might expect. If the other driver’s story differs from yours or casts suspicion on the speed you were driving prior to the accident, you might not get the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.
In intersection accidents, liability is a serious issue. If you were injured in one, you will need an attorney to protect your rights and recover your compensation in full. At the law firm of Gregory A Yates, P.C., you’ll have attorneys skilled in traffic law and the complexities of an intersection accident case. However, before making an appointment for a free consultation, you must be prepared with the facts.
Proof of fault is critical in personal injury cases concerning vehicular accidents. California law dictates comparative liability in traffic accidents, meaning that your compensation may be reduced by the amount of fault assigned to you. For this reason, camera footage, witnesses, and police reports are invaluable to clearing you of all liability and making irrefutable insurance claims.
Alongside this evidence, it is imperative that you do not discuss the accident with the other driver’s insurance company. Even the most innocent answer can be used against you in court and prevent you from receiving due compensation. For example, if the insurance company asks you if you looked both ways before proceeding, saying you didn’t because you had the right of way will assign you a percentage of fault in the accident.
To prevent these types of issues, your best course of action is to consult with an attorney experienced and knowledgeable in intersection laws so that your best interests are protected.
