Determining Fault in a Car Accident
A Jacksonville car accident lawyer can help prove you were not at fault
You were hurt in a car accident in Jacksonville. Can you recover financial compensation for your injuries? That depends largely on who is determined to be at fault for the accident. You need an experienced car accident lawyer who will fight for you. The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
The negligent driver who hit you may have been texting, speeding, operating recklessly or fell asleep at the wheel. Recovering compensation is never simple. Negligent drivers often deny responsibility and don’t admit to doing anything wrong, however.
Their insurance companies are happy to stand by those drivers, because they are trying to pay you as little as they can. They may blame you for at least partially causing the accident. This makes a difference because under Florida’s comparative negligence system, if you are found partially at fault for the accident, it affects the amount of compensation you can recover.
That’s why you need an experienced car accident lawyer who is familiar with insurance company tactics and knows how to fight back. We understand the importance of determining fault in car accident cases. We know how to build strong cases that prove a negligent driver caused the accident that left you injured. Our results include more than $11 million for a seriously injured driver who was wrongly charged with causing an accident.
It starts by investigating your car accident to get the facts. Our legal team gathers and carefully reviews evidence, which may include:
- Photographs – Take pictures after your car crash, if you can. Pictures can provide valuable evidence. Take pictures of the accident scene, including pictures that show the position of the vehicles; nearby homes, businesses and other landmarks; traffic signs or signals; guardrails; debris in the road and any unsafe road conditions, such as potholes.
Also take pictures of exterior and interior damage to the vehicles. This includes dents, broken glass, scratches, blown out tires and other damage.
