Ways in which car accident liability is established

Oregon drivers may be interested how liability is ascertained after a car accident. Without this important information, it may be difficult to prove that a driver was negligent and caused the accident. There are several ways to establish liability, and being aware of what to do may help. When an accident happens, it is necessary to document how it occurred. In some municipalities, police are no longer required to appear at an accident site if no one was injured. If authorities are on site, obtaining a copy of what is reported may assist in proving fault. An insurance company may use this in its assessment of the accident.
