Determining liability in motor vehicle accidents can be a complicated issue. As a victim of an accident, whether it was a hit-and-run pedestrian accident or a collision with an 18-wheeler, you may be able to recover compensation from the liable parties for your injuries, your income loss, and your pain and suffering.

Who Is Liable?

The driver who acted negligently and caused the accident can generally be held responsible for injuries caused by the accident, but other parties may share responsibility.  Potential responsible parties, other than the driver, may include:

  • Parents of the minor driving the car.
  • Owner of the car who loaned it to a friend or family member.
  • Owner of the vehicle if it was being used for commercial purposes.
  • Employer of the driver.
  • Owner of the materials being shipped (in trucking accidents).

Determining who is at fault in your accident and who can be held legally liable for your injuries is best handled by an experienced auto accident attorney.
