Determining Fault

In most cases, one driver in an accident involving two or more drivers is at fault for the accident. In some one-person accidents, the fault may lie with the driver or another party. For example, the party at fault may be the entity in charge of maintaining the road if a road defect caused the accident.

Knowing who is at fault is important because it helps determine whether the victim’s family has grounds for a wrongful death claim. If no one can be blamed for the accident, or if the victim was the person at fault, then his or her family will not have grounds for legal action.

Wrongful death claim can help grieving families receive the compensation they need to cover medical bills, funeral expenses, and other financial losses. When a car accident causes a tragic fatality, it is important for victims and their families to understand all of their legal rights and options.
