Determining Liability

Determining Liability

Who is at fault for your accident?

Courts in San Antonio and throughout Texas recognize the right of a plaintiff to sue for personal injury or wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Often, people are injured through no fault of their own and are not even aware that compensation is available. Companies and individuals are responsible for their property, their employees, their vehicles, their equipment and others who work under their authority. If someone else had any hand in causing your injury, you may be entitled to recover damages from him or her.

Do not hesitate to retain our firm simply because you are unsure of who is at-fault. You could potentially receive an insurance settlement or jury verdict to pay you for all of your medical expenses in the present and future; the income you have lost and your reduced future earning power; and even the pain, suffering and emotional distress that you have experienced. The key is to find evidence to prove that the other party is liable for causing the accident.

Examples of Fault in San Antonio Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims

A classic example of fault in a personal injury case involves the legal principle of premises liability in a slip and fall accident claim. If a property owner is aware of conditions such as a spill on the floor that could cause a slip and fall, yet fails to take precautions to prevent such an accident by removing the hazard or posting a warning, the owner may be found to be liable for monetary damages.

Similarly, our car accident attorneys in San Antonio can work to establish that a driver is at fault for causing a car accident if he or she was driving drunk or texting on a cell phone behind the wheel. Fault for 18-wheeler accidents is often ascribed to truck drivers who stay on the road despite being tired. In cases involving plant and refinery explosions, chemical plant accidents and oil field accidents, it is sometimes possible to recover financial compensation by demonstrating that the employer was negligent in maintaining equipment or lax in the enforcement of workplace safety regulations.

How a San Antonio Personal Injury Attorney Demonstrates Fault

When you hire The Daspit Law Firm to represent your case, we can take immediate action to investigate evidence to support your claim for monetary damages. We routinely perform on-site inspections of accident scenes, taking photographs of the environment and looking for conditions that may have caused or contributed to the incident. In some cases, it is necessary to retain the services of expert witnesses who can testify in the courtroom, such as engineers and accident reconstruction specialists or medical doctors who share their insight into the cause of an injury.

By assembling a case against the party who caused your accident, we may be able to compel the insurance company to pay you a fair settlement for your losses. In the event that this is not possible, we can take this evidence to court in pursuit of a jury verdict in your favor.

An eye for detail, and their diligent effort resulted in everything we had hoped for. Want to thank the entire team again, for helping my family and going the extra mile to prove our case. Lita”
