Who is Liable in an Accident Case?
When you are involved in an accident, you may hear your insurance company discuss liability and negligence. These terms can be confusing and are sometimes confused with one another. One of the first things that needs to be determined is which party caused the accident, or determination of liability. The second thing is whether the liable party failed to take reasonable measures and care to protect other who visit their property or come in contact with them. This important step is known as the determination of negligence. Reasonable care refers to actions that should reasonably be taken to avoid harming another person, and can most commonly be associated with operation a motor vehicle. For example: observing speed limits, avoiding texting while driving, maintaining vehicle safety, stopping at red lights or yielding to pedestrians.
If you feel that you have a claim based on negligence of another party, you must act immediately. In every accident case, Florida Law and the Statue of Limitations will govern what relief and legal remedies you're entitled to pursue.
