Where Wrongs Are Made Right
The law firm of Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler, L.L.P. is committed to providing sound legal support to help ensure that auto accident victims pursue the full and fair compensation needed to pay all expenses related to their injuries. A primary key to our successful case results is how we thoroughly investigate each individual client case to ensure that all evidence is available to prove liability.
How Negligence Is Defined Under the Law
To prove liability according to Washington law, an auto accident attorney must establish that the following four key points of negligence have been met:
- A negligent party owes a duty to the injured.
- The duty was breached by the negligent party.
- The victim suffered injury or other damages.
- The breach of duty by the negligent party caused the injury or damages.
It is important to understand that, while the majority of car accidents involve negligence on the part of another driver, this is not always the case. Vehicle flaws can point to the negligence of other parties—those responsible for poorly designed or manufactured vehicles, or for insufficiently repaired vehicles. This type of issue can greatly complicate determination of who is actually liable.
Proving Liability Requires Evidence, Legal Knowledge, and Resources
The causes of some auto accidents are readily apparent, but other cases are more complicated. Accident victims can provide the first line of support for their cases by collecting information from everyone involved (including witnesses), retaining evidence, taking pictures, and collecting all paperwork—from police reports to medical receipts. At this point, legal experience is required to help develop the evidence that ensures an effective case.
