On Thursday morning, Charles Fisher, 39, was killed in a car accident when a Chrysler 300 sideswiped his garbage collector truck on the driver’s side. At the time of the accident, he was working on the driver’s side step of the garbage truck. He passed away from the driver’s side front tire. Though the accident is under investigation, the driver of the other vehicle will probably hold liability. Our thoughts are with the family of Charles Fisher at this time.
When somebody has caused an accident and you are injured or your loved one is killed, it is imperative that you discover liability to see who has acted negligently in the accident. To show who is liable for your accident when it comes time for your personal injury claim, you want to be able to gather as much evidence as possible. This sometimes means everything from speaking to witnesses, to collecting a police report, to take photographs of the accident scene as well as your injuries (or injuries sustained by your loved one).
Every state has regulations that determine how you should operate your vehicle and regulate what occurs on the roadways. When these statutes and regulations have been avoided, you may end up with a case where negligence is obvious. Fault in an accident can sometimes easily be determined by citing that a statute was disobeyed, such as a charge that stems from a police report. The evidence is out there when you need to get started on building your case.
