Work With Experienced Orange County Car Accident Lawyers
Generally, liability for a car accident hinges on whether a driver was careless or negligent. An Orange County car accident attorney can explain that this usually means that a driver failed to exercise “reasonable care.” This can mean speeding, running stop signs, or driving distracted.
However, an Orange County motor vehicle accident attorney will also explain that proving negligence can be extremely difficult. For example, there may be many contributing factors to an accident. Moreover, it may be hard to pinpoint one driver’s negligence. Some types of proof that your attorney can use include:
- Police Reports. Responding officers may take notes as to the cause of an accident. They may also take photos of skid marks or other circumstances. An experienced attorney knows how to comb through a police report to gather the evidence to support your case.
- Red Light Cameras. These cameras can capture a negligent driver in the act. However, you may need the assistance of an Orange County car accident attorney just to access these photos and have it admitted into evidence.
- Hospital and Paramedic Reports. These reports can be invaluable in showing causation and fault. The nature of injuries such as in rear-end accidents can be telling.
These are just some common types of evidence that an experienced attorney will use to help prove your case. If you have any questions regarding the circumstances of your case, talk to an attorney as soon as possible.
