Disputing Fault In a Car Accident

In the aftermath of a car accident, you might find yourself facing repair bill. To make sure that those bills don’t come out of your own pocket, you should might have to dispute findings that the accident was your fault. This means that you will need to present evidence to both your insurance company and the insurance company of the other driver that you were not at fault.

How to Dispute Fault

The most important step is to make sure that you have a lawyer on your side. This is important because you will have to deal with insurance companies that are likely experts in proving fault in an accident. Having an attorney on your side will help level the playing field and make sure that you are able to receive all of the money that you deserve.

The second step is to gather all of the evidence that you can. Ideally evidence gathering begins at the scene of the accident, but that is not always possible. This is where an attorney can help contact witnesses or find footage of the accident.

Lastly, it is important that you do not admit fault or partial fault for the accident. This can even include apologies. Any admission of guilt, even with the best of intentions can be used against you as evidence of fault.
