Who is Liable in a Car Accident?

It is important to prove who is liable for injuries incurred in a car accident. Several factors determine who is liability.

Motor Vehicle Laws

Each state in the US has passed laws regulating the way drivers must operate their vehicles on public roads. These laws are the result of legislative initiatives and are important in determining negligence in an accident.


Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care, resulting in damage or injury to another.


Lack of regard for the danger or consequences of one’s actions; rashness.

Intentional misconduct

The term “intentional misconduct” means conduct by a person with knowledge (at the time of the conduct) that the conduct is harmful to the health or well-being of another person.

Final determination of who is at fault is established after a police report is reviewed and insurance companies have negotiated. It is important to contact an experienced accident attorney for serious motor vehicle accidents.
