Liability in Car Accident Cases

Who is Liable for Car Accident Injuries?

"Another car swerved into my lane, which caused me to swerve and hit another car. Is the other driver liable for the injuries he caused to the occupants in the car I hit?"

It depends. Did the other car actually hit your vehicle, or just cause you to react by swerving into the other lane? Did the other driver stick around the accident scene or take off? Did you get his information? The answers will help us determine if you can pursue a personal injury case.

There may be a good chance that the other driver will be liable for all the injuries the accident caused; however, depending on your specific circumstances, you may have to look to your own PIP insurance or uninsured motorist (UIM) coverage. If the lane-changing driver never hit your vehicle but caused you to crash into another car, you may still be able to recover.

However, these types of cases can be tricky, as insurance companies often question hit-and-run accidents that left no sign of damage. You will need the help of a skilled Atlanta personal injury lawyer to assist you in your recovery using your uninsured motorist coverage.

On the other hand, if the other driver did crash into your car and you exchanged insurance information with him, you should be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against him and his insurance company for the damages.

Due to the complications surrounding your accident, you would be better off to talk with a knowledgeable Atlanta accident attorney at Kalka & Baer LLC.
