Liability in a Car Accident

All drivers have a duty to take reasonable precaution to avoid being involved in a car accident, and can be held accountable for causing a collision through negligence or recklessness. There are many laws in place regarding speed limits and traffic patterns; when these laws are not followed, the results can be catastrophic. While some wrecks are unavoidable, the majority can be attributed to the actions, or failure to act, of one or more of the drivers. In this case, the victims the right to sue for damages.

At the Loewy Law Firm, our Austin accident attorneys work to obtain all of the evidence, the facts, and statements from both parties. We then work to uncover the truth about what happened, and determine who was at fault. At this point, we work with our clients to build a case that will aggressively pursue their rights in court if the insurance company has not made a satisfactory settlement offer. We know how this process works and our personal injury lawyers can put more than a decade of experience to work for you.

Cases of Liability

Common examples of an individual who is blatantly liable in an accident include drunk driving accidents and crashes caused by reckless or aggressive driving. There is also a strong connection between driver distraction and car accidents, with behaviors such as driving while texting and grooming in the mirror causing a large number of collisions. Attorney Loewy is a Super Lawyer® and a lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and knows how to effectively prepare our clients’ claims to pursue the best possible results.

If the other driver is found to be at fault for your accident, you are entitled to claim full compensation for every aspect of the situation from your medical expenses and lost income to the pain and suffering you have experienced. It may even be possible to file a claim for damages after a single vehicle accident, such as in an auto product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer based on dangerous defects in the design or manufacture of the vehicle.
