Proving Liability in a Las Vegas Car Accident

Posted By Shook & Stone || 15-Apr-2014

Victims and families who suffer harm during car accidents caused by another have the right to file personal injury claims and recover compensation for their losses. Navigating the claim process and obtaining full and fair compensation, however, can be difficult. At Shook & Stone, our Las Vegas car accident attorneys draw from years of experience to prove that another driver or party is liable for our clients' damages.

When representing car accident victims, our legal team focuses on proving that another's negligence more likely than not caused harm. We do this by focusing on the following legal elements:

  • A legal duty existed – All drivers have a legal obligation to obey the rules of the road and operate their vehicles safely. This is their legal duty, and it can reduce the risk of preventable accidents.
  • A legal duty was breached – Whenever drivers fail to uphold their responsibility to take reasonable measures to drive safely, they breach their legal duty and place others at risk.
  • The breach of duty caused harm – Any breach of duty can cause harm. Examples may include distracted driving, drunk driving, or defective products made by negligent manufacturers. In any situation, victims who suffer harm as a direct result of another's breach of duty may have the right to recover their damages.

By focusing on these elements and clearly proving fault and liability, our attorneys can provide our clients with the best possible leverage for maximizing their compensation. We understand that these are difficult times, which is why we make it a point to handle all complexities of the personal injury claim process for our clients so that they can focus on recovering.
