PROVE OTHER DRIVER AT FAULT IN MINNESOTA CAR ACCIDENT – LAWYERS
In Minnesota, if you are injured in a car accident, you are entitled to certain compensation for your medical bills and lost wages, regardless of who caused the accident. Our car accident lawyers in MN always explain these insurance benefits to you when you call us for a free consultation. However, you may also be entitled to additional compensation for your pain and suffering or excess medical and future medical expenses for your car accident injury if you can prove the other driver was at fault. Most people are surprised to find out that proving the other driver was at fault is rarely as easy as it seems, or as it should be. Our MN auto accident attorneys will explain how to prove the other driver was at fault, and why it may be more complicated than it seems, when you call our office for a free consultation. Even if you are rear-ended in an accident, the insurance company for the other driver may argue that you did something wrong or were at least partially at fault. Also, many drivers who cause a vehicle crash don’t want to admit the accident was their fault because they are worried their insurance rate will increase. For this reason, it is a good idea to call a top car accident lawyer in MN soon after your accident so that we can investigate the case for you, get the police report, hire an accident reconstructionist if necessary and get statements from the witnesses to prove who was at fault in causing the crash.
It is also important, and comforting, to know that the same rules you had to learn before you could pass the MN driver’s test, apply to determining fault in a car accident case. In fact, if your case were to go to trial, the judge would give the jury the applicable driving rules to read before making a decision about fault. For example, the rules about obeying the speed limit and not following the car ahead of you too closely can be crucial in persuading a jury or insurance company that the auto crash was the other driver’s fault and compensation should be paid. This is something an experienced car accident attorney understands and will explain to you in more detail at the first consultation.
