How Do I Find Who Is At Fault In A Car Accident?

Much of our time is taken up by commuting to and from our work, activities, food, entertainment, shopping, and home. A large amount of time we spend on the road translates into more of a chance to be a victim in an auto accident. This is why it is important to practice road safety, but also to understand and know what to do in case you are ever involved in an auto accident. Most often for a minor accident you simply exchange insurance, license numbers, and contact information, file a police report, but pay the expenses on your own. When the accident is not so fortunate to be minor, and injury and damages occur, you may have a legal case.

Determining Fault in an Auto Accident

The police report is used to determine fault and can either make or break a claim. Gathering evidence on top of the police report is vital. Pictures, eye witnesses, and information from the other driver will also help build your case and hopefully strengthen the police report or overrule it in your favor.

Compensation for a Wisconsin Car Accident

There are many complexities to what will be compensated in a car accident, but some of the things that may be covered depending on your claim are:

  • Your vehicle
  • Medical Treatment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Rental vehicle or taxi until your car is repaired or replaced
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Punitive damages

Often known as “compensatory damages” these expenses normally fall into two categories, economic and noneconomic and will attempt to help make the victim of the accident whole again.
