A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision including; vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, driver skill and/or impairment and driver behavior. Worldwide motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved. Most often auto accidents occur because a driver has been negligent, meaning that he or she has operated a vehicle in a careless or unsafe manner.

Receiving compensation for an auto accident usually means having your property repairs, medical expenses, lost income, physical and psychological pain and, if applicable, lost prospects paid for by the negligent party or parties. Figuring out who is at fault in a traffic accident is a matter of deciding who was negligent. The attorneys at the Liljegren Law Group will help you investigate your case to determine who was at fault for the accident. Sources they may uses include, police reports, state traffic laws, and witnesses.

In the United States, individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents can be held financially liable for the consequences of an accident, including property damage, injuries to passengers and drivers, and fatalities. In California, drivers are required to carry liability insurance to cover these potential costs that can easily exceed the annual income of the average driver. However, in the event of severe injuries or fatalities, victims may seek damages in civil court, often for well in excess of the value of insurance.
