Although police will file a report and may cite a driver or drivers for traffic violations following a car accident, they are not responsible for determining fault. The insurance companies of the drivers involved in an accident will assess fault, and their decision can dramatically impact the compensation you’re offered.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was at least partly due to the negligence of another driver, the experienced Sarasota car accident attorneys at Luhrsen Law Group can help ensure you are not taken advantage of by the insurance companies, who will attempt to minimize payouts and may unfairly try to shift blame for the accident to you.
Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that insurance companies can split fault among drivers and offer monetary damages based not on the extent of damage to your vehicle or severity of your injuries, but rather on your level of contribution to the accident.
Fault is determined largely by establishing negligence. Negligent acts that commonly contribute to car accidents include:
Again, multiple drivers may share a portion of fault; being found partly at fault in a car accident does not mean you don’t have the right to pursue additional compensation for property damage and personal injury. Before accepting any insurance company settlement, it’s advisable to consult with a knowledgeable car accident attorney who can assess your liability and injuries.
The car accident attorneys at Luhrsen Law Group understand Florida traffic laws and insurance company practices, and know how to build a thorough case to help you receive the compensation you need to recover.
