Proving Liability for Texas Car Accidents
Texas is an at-fault state, meaning that those whose actions or negligence lead to a car accident may be held legally responsible for the damages caused by that accident. Proving that another party’s action or negligence is what caused your accident can be difficult but is generally accomplished by proving three points:
- The at-fault party had a duty to exercise reasonable caution on the road.
- The at-fault driver failed to exercise that caution.
- The at-fault driver’s failure to exercise caution is what caused your crash.
In order to prove these three points, you will need evidence from the scene, police reports, medical records, and other documentation. It may also be necessary to call on expert witnesses to prove liability. Our Liverpool car accident attorneys can help you find the evidence you need and present it in the strongest possible light.
Damages Available for a Texas Car Accident
Those who have proven that their accident was caused by another party may be eligible for compensation for part, if not all, of their expenses related to the crash.
Compensation may be limited if the court determines that the victim was partially responsible for the accident. For instance, if you are found 10% responsible for your crash, you will likely only be eligible for payment of 90% of your losses.
The types of damages offered are generally separated between losses with monetary costs, economic losses, and losses that are more abstract, non-economic losses.
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of relationships
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
