Who Decides Fault in a Car Accident?

When you file an accident claim with an auto insurance company in Georgia, an insurance adjuster reviews relevant information and evidence to determine who is at fault. An attorney can negotiate with the adjuster to come to a mutually acceptable decision regarding responsibility.

When you initiate a personal injury lawsuit, your attorney makes your case before a judge or jury. They may do this by presenting evidence such as:

  • The police accident report
  • Dashcam, surveillance, and traffic camera footage
  • Medical records and bills
  • Eyewitness accounts
  • Expert witness testimony

The judge or jury then reviews the evidence, assesses the facts, listens to witness testimonies, and considers expert opinions to determine liability and award compensation as needed.

Evidence is vital to building a compelling case in either situation. An experienced attorney can help you collect the information you need to pursue full compensation.
