Determining Negligence After an Accident
To obtain a positive case result, your legal representative needs to prove that a negligent party is responsible for your injuries and financial losses. Unfortunately, most car collisions occur when motorists adopt dangerous habits or start driving recklessly.
Negligent driving behaviors include, but are not limited to:
- Distracted driving
- Failing to yield
- Running red lights
- Talking with passengers
- Eating or drinking
At Burnside Law, our legal team can meticulously research the accident, collect vital evidence, and construct a litigation strategy that identifies the at-fault party. Once we have this information, we can go toe-to-toe with the defendant’s insurance company and help you secure a settlement that covers your injury-related debts and escalating medical expenses. Of course, we can also take your case to court if the insurer refuses to provide you with the compensation your condition warrants.
