How Do I Prove My Car Accident Was Caused by Another Driver?

Car Accident Injury Lawyer

If you’ve been in a car accident and suffered serious injuries in New York State, you may be able to pursue a claim against the other driver. But how do you prove your car accident was caused by the other driver? You will need to demonstrate that the other person acted negligently which caused the accident and your resulting injuries. 

The facts and circumstances are different for every accident. However, some commonly used evidence to prove fault in a serious injury accident includes: 

  • The Police Accident Report  
  • Any video footage available of the accident 
  • Photos from the scene of the accident 
  • Statements from witnesses to the accident 
  • Accident damage to the vehicles 
  • Any tickets issued to the at-fault driver 
  • Documentation of your serious injuries, including medical records 

You may be able to hold an at-fault driver liable if you have suffered injuries serious enough to meet New York State’s no-fault law threshold. Having a motor vehicle accident attorney on your side will help take some of the stress off of you in collecting evidence, building a case that proves the other driver was at fault, and pursuing compensation for your injuries. An MCV Law attorney will evaluate your case for free and make an initial determination of whether your serious injuries might qualify you to pursue compensation in a fault-based claim.
