What determines who is responsible for a Pennsylvania traffic accident?

 

A: There are many factors which go into providing evidence of who was responsible for your Pennsylvania traffic accident. Police reports, witness statements, and physical evidence are the 3 main methods by which your Philadelphia car accident attorney can help prove your case of negligence.

In almost all Pennsylvania traffic accident claims, the violation of a traffic law is the main method for determining responsibility for the accident.
If the police report reflects a traffic violation by the other driver, your Philadelphia car accident attorney can use this as evidence to show that the other party was negligent in their duty to drive responsibly.

When there is no clear violation of a traffic law as the cause of your Pennsylvania traffic accident, your Philadelphia car accident attorney may help you obtain witness testimony that supports your innocence in causing the accident. Physical evidence such as skid marks on the road or the impact area on the vehicle can also help determine who was responsible for your Pennsylvania traffic accident.

It is important to preserve all evidence of your Pennsylvania traffic accident, including your vehicle damage, photographs of the accident scene, records of your injuries, and witness information.
This evidence will be critical to your Philadelphia car accident attorney in helping show the other party was responsible for your damages.

Make sure to obtain copies of all police reports and look for clear violations of Pennsylvania traffic laws as a sign of responsibility for your accident.
