Fault in a Car Accident
If you have been involved in a car accident, perhaps you’re wondering if you can recover any compensation. If the other driver was at-fault of the car accident they likely owe you money for your losses. Even if you were partially at fault, you still might be eligible to at least partial compensation.
Proving that you are entitled to compensation typically requires an experienced car accident attorney. At Josh and Patel our car accident attorneys will ensure that you understand your rights, will evaluate your accident, investigate the governing law, gather evidence for your case, so that you are not taken advantage of by insurance companies seeking to undervalue the severity of your injuries and minimize your compensation.
What Is Negligence?
Negligence is generally defined as a failure to exercise the care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in like circumstances. This means to avoid hurting others through our actions. Negligence results in at-fault parties being liable for compensating injured victims.
In car accident cases, opposing sides will often want to place blame on the other. Courts and juries consider all of the evidence to determine who is at fault. It is important for injured victims to contact the experienced attorneys at Joshi and Patel to make sure that fault for the accident is properly determined.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident speak with an experienced car accident attorney at Joshi & Patel.
At Joshi & Patel we offer a free case evaluation, no obligation consultation. Once it has been determined that you have a case, we will work for you on a contingent fee basis. In other words, you don’t pay your personal injury attorney fees up-front. Instead, you sign an agreement to pay us a percentage of your settlement amount. You pay us absolutely nothing unless you recover.
