Understanding Liability in a Car Accident
When considering the liability, it is important to realize that it will be split into several different types, including public, owner's and vicarious. If the car accident resulted in severe personal injury, such as whiplash from a rear-end collision, then damages will be split into the actual damages (the actual cost of the damage for medical expenses and property damage) and the moral damages (the estimated cost used to cover pain and suffering).
To determine who is responsible in the car accident, there are certain things that will be taken into consideration. For example, in rear-end collisions, the person who was behind and drive into the car in front is almost always the driver who will be held liable. This, however, is not a steadfast rule and changes with the unique circumstances of each collision. To best understand who is liable in the car accident that you were involved in, do not hesitate to contact a knowledgeable Oakland attorney who can review your case and help you understand your situation.
