Who’s Liable in a Car Accident?

One of the most pressing questions to answer after a car accident is that of liability, or legal responsibility. In Washington, liability for a car accident is based on fault or negligence–the failure to exercise the same level of care that another party in a similar circumstance might demonstrate. Common examples of negligence that may lead to liability in a car accident claim include:

  • Speeding;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Driving while intoxicated; 
  • Performing an illegal maneuver; and 
  • Driving aggressively. 

In order to prove liability, an investigation into your case that gathers compelling evidence may need to be launched. Our Lakeland North car accident lawyers can handle this investigation on your behalf. 

How the Claims Process Works

The other thing that most people injured in a car accident want to know is how the claims process works. Here’s a brief overview of the steps of the claims process and what you need to do as a claimant–

  • File a police report and seek medical care. After a car accident, two of the most critical things you need to do are filing a police report and seeking medical care; if you don’t do these things, your claim likely will not be accepted.
  • Notify your insurance provider. The second thing that you need to do is provide your insurance company with notice of the accident. If you delay in doing this, it could deny your claim.
  • Waiting to reach MMI; calculating damages. Next, you’ll need to wait until you reach Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) before you file your demand letter. During this time, an investigation proving fault will be conducted and your other damages will be calculated. 
  • Filing a demand letter and negotiating your settlement. Once you file your demand letter, the insurance company will likely counter with a settlement offer that is less than you were asking for. You have the right to reject this settlement and negotiate. Sometimes, negotiations will settle out of court; other times, you may choose to file a lawsuit.
