Diners in a local donut shop recently learned just how unexpected a car accident can be earlier this month when a car crashed through the front of a Miami-Dade donut shop. According to a report published at NBC six people were rushed to the hospital with varying injuries. Witness reported that it appeared that the driver, an older woman, hit the gas instead of the brake.

Obtaining Compensation after a Serious Accident Can Be Complicated

In the vast majority of car accident cases,  liability is not contested. This generally means that is perfectly clear who caused the accident and the only issue that needs to be addressed is the amount of money the at-fault party (or his or her insurer) will pay the victim. Unless there is a significant disagreement as to the amount of damages, the case may settle without either party needing to set foot in a court room. But what about auto, car and motor vehicle  accident cases in which liability is not obvious or is disputed? How does a car accident victim prove another person was legally at fault for their accident? In these cases,  obtaining financial recovery becomes significantly more complicated. Below is some information about how liability can be established in a contested car accident case. Of course, in under these circumstances, its always a good idea to hire a car accident lawyer in Miami . Below are some of the evidence your personal injury lawyer will need to help prove your legal claim.

Showing Fault Can Require Significant Investigation

Generally speaking, proving that the other party was at fault for an accident requires gathering evidence of his or her negligence. Under  Florida law, negligence occurs when a person fails to use the degree of care that would ordinarily be exercised by a reasonable person in the same or similar circumstances. In the context of a auto, car or motor vehicle accident case, negligence can take many forms, including speeding, distracted driving, failure to signal a turn or lane change, or drunk driving.
