Determining liability, also known as fault, in a personal injury case often depends on the circumstances of your accident. In order to figure out whether you have a good personal injury case, you should speak with an attorney to have them review the specific facts of your case. The following situations are a few examples of the types of car accident cases we help victims of at our Encino car accident law firm:
- Rear-End Accidents: When you are rear-ended, there is a very high probability that the accident was caused by the other driver. There are very limited circumstances when a rear-end collision is deemed to be the fault of the car in front.
- Head On: A head-on collision can be a very serious collision, and when it is caused by a car who left their lane of travel or crossed a divider line on a road or highway, they will usually be found at fault.
- T-Bone Accident: When a car is T-boned, there are many different ways that this can happen, including at a light, stop sign, or where a car is making a turn into traffic. Liability will depend on the rules of the road for the situation.
- Sideswipe Highway Accident: These accidents can be the result of negligent highway driving and can result in rollovers or other serious crashes.
