When this is the case, you may know another motorist’s actions led to your injuries, but just how do you go about proving this fact?
An Atlanta personal injury lawyer understands better than anyone that proving another driver broke Georgia road rules can significantly help your case if you’re seeking compensation from the at-fault driver and his or her insurance carrier.
Some ways a personal injury lawyer can incorporate another driver’s traffic law violations into your claim include:
- using a police report to demonstrate accident responsibility, vehicle damage, medical care provided on scene, whether alcohol was involved;
- viewing surveillance video from nearby gas stations or convenience stores to see if your accident was caught on tape, depicting the other driver’s violation of Georgia traffic laws; and
- speaking with witnesses to see if their stories corroborate with other sources pointing to Georgia road rule infractions.
Lastly, it’s important to remember that just because another motorist broke the law, you’re not guaranteed an automatic favorable personal injury claim judgment or settlement. Proving another driver’s fault for your crash can be a challenging and time-consuming task without the help of someone well-versed in Georgia traffic laws.
If you’ve been hurt in a crash and want to know if filing a personal injury claim is an option for you, a lawyer specializing in Georgia car wrecks can help you figure out if traffic law violations played a role. If so, you’ll get the guidance you need on what to do next.
