Horst, an experienced Orlando personal injury lawyer, adds that, “Other means of proving fault in a car accident is through traffic light sequencing, accident reconstructions, independent witness, vehicle photos and vehicle repair reports. These are the most common but there are actually even more ways to prove it.”

Another presumption in traffic-related personal injury cases is that a driver who is making a left turn is almost always liable for a collision with a vehicle coming straight through the intersection from the other direction. Unless the driver moving straight through the intersection was speeding or running a red light, the driver making the left turn will almost inevitably be deemed the at-fault driver.

After any traffic collision in Central Florida, do not confess or admit fault, do not sign any documents, and do not speak with an insurance company before consulting with an experienced Orlando personal injury attorney. Characteristically, the insurance companies in these cases offer injury victims a settlement amount that is far below the actual value of the case. Don’t accept such a settlement. If you’ve been injured by a negligent driver, a good personal injury lawyer can first determine who was responsible and then fight for compensation and justice on your behalf.
