When you think about a motor vehicle accident, you usually think about two or more cars crashing, a commercial truck colliding with a passenger vehicle, or an accident involving a motorcycle. You typically do not think about a motor vehicle accident involving an airplane but anything can happen.
A skydiving plane crashed hitting a pickup truck on its way to the ground. The plan clipped the rear of the truck before it entered a vineyard and flipped over on Highway 99 in Lodi, CA. Thankfully, no one on the ground was injured and all 17 skydivers and the pilot walked away from the plane crash with only minor injuries. This goes to show you that a motor vehicle accident can involve some pretty odd circumstances.
For this reason, you want an experienced Sacramento car accident attorney on your side just in case your claim involves some strange or challenging issues that make proving fault difficult. You must prove fault in order to receive compensation for your injuries under California’s personal injury laws.
Proving Fault in a California Motor Vehicle Accident
Before you can receive compensation from the other driver in a motor vehicle accident, you must prove that driver was at fault for the crash. If you fail to prove the other driver did something to cause the accident, you will not be able to recover compensation for your losses, damages, and injuries. Furthermore, your compensation could be reduced if the other driver is able to prove that you contributed to the accident in any way. Therefore, proving fault for a car accident can be a complicated process but it is crucial in order to win your car accident case.
One of the best things you can do after a motor vehicle accident is to contact our office. In order to prove fault, we must obtain evidence; therefore, the sooner we begin the process the better. Evidence at the accident scene can change (i.e. placement of signs, road debris, low-hanging trees, etc.) and memories of witnesses can fade. We want to begin a comprehensive accident investigation as soon as possible in order to identify and preserve key evidence we will use to prove the other driver caused the accident.
Insurance companies try to limit the amount of compensation they must pay to motor vehicle accident victims, especially in cases where the damages are significant. If we must file a car accident lawsuit and go to court, we want to be prepared with as much evidence as possible to prove to the jury that the other driver is at fault and you are entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
