Advocacy You Can Rely On
After a car accident occurs, focus begins to shift towards finding out
who was at fault in causing the car accident. The police officer may issue
a citation in the car accident for any traffic laws that have been violated.
The officer may even assign blame to one of the parties. It is important
to realize that insurance companies take into consideration various other
factors when determining fault. So while the police officer may feel one
party is to blame, the insurance company can see it a different way. We
will have an understanding of the methods used by insurance companies
to determine fault. Auto accident injury lawyers can help guide you through
this sometimes confusing time and protect your rights as well.
Fault in some cases may be clear cut, but in others, fault may be shared
to varying degrees. Even though you may not have received a traffic violation
for the accident, you should keep in mind that you may still be assigned
fault, or even partial fault, by the insurance company. It is important
to seek the qualified counsel of an experienced San Antonio car accident
lawyer if you are in a situation like this. You need to protect your rights
