When it comes to determining whether or not your medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and suffering will be covered by another, you need to first be able to prove negligence and fault. If you can do this, you may be able to establish an effective claim. The best way to do this is to identify who caused your accident, which can often be done by determining what type of collision took place.
For example, in a head-on collision, you can determine who was at fault by examining which direction each car came from, who had the right of way at the time, and how the traffic rules of the road would apply. In a hit and run accident, even if you shared some of the blame, you may be able to take legal action due to the criminal actions of the driver who fled the scene.
Multiple vehicle accidents are often the most challenging to navigate, as determining fault and proving liability can be difficult with so many drivers involved. Regardless, by carefully examining the collision, reviewing any evidence such as traffic light footage, and applying traffic laws, you can conclude who was most likely at fault for the accident.
