AUTO ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY ANOTHER DRIVER’S CONDUCT

The law of negligence holds that people must exercise “reasonable care” while operating any type of motorized vehicle. Failure to exercise such care, resulting in injury, is typically the basis for determining damages that are caused by the accident. ​In addition to negligence, liability may also be found if the accident was caused by intentional or reckless conduct. If a person operates an automobile in an unsafe manner and with willful disregard for the safety of others which results in an accident that injures another individual, that person may be required to pay incurred damages as well. ​

AUTO ACCIDENTS UNRELATED TO ANOTHER DRIVER’S CONDUCT

Examples of accidents that might be unrelated to another driver’s conduct include: faulty repairs by mechanics; dysfunctional traffic signals; roads that have not been maintained; and the improper design, construction, or lighting of a public road. In addition, a bar or restaurant may be liable for damages if they continue to serve alcohol to a patron who is already obviously intoxicated and that patron later operates an automobile and causes an accident that injures another person. Even an automobile manufacturer or supplier may be held responsible for making or selling a defective automobile, if that defect was a cause of an injury.
