What Is “No-Doubt” Liability Car Accidents

In certain car accidents, the opposing motorist is almost always at fault, and insurance providers rarely try to dispute this. Contact a Wyoming personal injury lawyer to get all the legal help you need in your car accident case.

Collisions in the rear end

  • No matter why you halted, it is rarely your fault if anybody strikes you from behind. According to a fundamental road regulation, a driver must be capable of stopping their vehicle properly if traffic is halted in front of them. 
  • Driving more dangerously than the individual in front is a driver who could not stop safely.
  • The other element of the rear-end collision complaint is that automotive damage frequently establishes how it occurred: If a car’s front end and the other vehicle’s rear end are both wrecked, there can be little doubt as to who hit whom. 
  • It is indeed true that the motorist in the car that struck you might have a case against the person who abruptly stopped you or against that third automobile that rammed into yours, but this does not absolve them of duty for your wounds and damage to the vehicle.
  • But be aware that even though you were rear-ended, the “comparative negligence” criterion may sometimes limit your reimbursement due to your fault. 
  • A typical instance was when your brake or rear lights were not working entirely or partially, mainly if the collision occurred at night. Some other examples would be if you experienced mechanical issues but did not take all reasonable steps to remove the car from traffic.

Left turns that cause accidents. 

A vehicle turning left risks colliding with one traveling directly in the other way. Rare and difficult to demonstrate are exceptions to this nearly automatic rule, but they can happen if:

  • The straight-ahead automobile was traveling far faster than the posted limit.
  • A red light was run through by the car driving straight.
  • When it was safe, the left-turning car started to turn, but an unforeseen event caused it to pause or slow down. A fundamental rule of the road states that a car making a left turn should stop until it can adequately complete the maneuver before moving ahead of moving traffic, making this a very challenging exception.

Similar to a rear-end crash, it can be challenging for the driver to assert that the accident occurred in a situation that was not a left turn due to the placement of the wreckage on the cars.
