How to Prove you are Not at Fault in a Car Accident

When multiple vehicles are involved in a car accident, it is important to determine who was responsible. Non-faulty drivers may have to argue (in court or with the insurance company) that the other party caused the accident. It is likely that the person who is found to be at fault will have to compensate for damages to those who have suffered injuries. The plaintiff in car accident cases has to prove that the defendant was at fault by the preponderance of the evidence.

One of the most common sources of information about an accident is the police report. In many cases, the officer arrives at the scene of the accident and takes note of the crash. These reports may include the officer's impressions of the accident, including what may have caused the crash. This information can prove invaluable when someone tries to prove fault related to the accident. People who have been involved in a crash should contact the officer who made the report and ask for a copy.

Of course, there may not be an officer available to approach the crash scene. You can go to the police station to make the report. Review the report in detail to make sure the facts are accurate. If there are inaccuracies, notify the police station immediately so they can be corrected.

People can also reinforce their arguments if they clearly show that the other party did not follow traffic laws. Typically, the driver who was speeding, ran a red light, or otherwise violated traffic rules is considered to have been at fault for the collision, provided there is sufficient evidence to support the claim.
