You can prove fault in your injury crash in a couple of ways

You are taking a seemingly ordinary trip to town, looking forward to all of the shopping you will do on your day off. However, all of a sudden, another car makes its way into your lane. And in a split second, you hear a crash, followed by a rush of pain.

Sometimes, car accidents are the result of another motorist's carelessness, in which case you can seek compensation for your injuries. The question is, if you learn that the other driver caused your accident due to negligent behavior, how will you prove it in court? Here is a look at a couple of ways you can prove fault and thus strengthen your liability case following a car crash that was not your fault.

The police report

When police arrive at an accident scene, they typically create an official report of the accident. This is especially the case if the accident led to injuries. In your crash situation, you may want to find out from the responding police officer where you can obtain the police report on your accident after it has been filed.

Police reports can come in handy for proving fault following car crashes, as a police report features the impressions of the police officer who responded to the related collision. In addition to summarizing how the accident happened, it may feature the police officer's opinion regarding who caused the accident. For example, maybe the person who struck your car was driving faster than the posted speed limit at the time of your wreck.

Traffic laws in Texas

Texas' vehicle code can also prove helpful for making your case regarding the other driver's role in the accident. An attorney can help you to find a law that is applicable to the crash. For example, perhaps the accident occurred when you were the driver and the other party tried to turn left in front of your car. It may behoove you to find a law regarding yielding to oncoming traffic when making a left turn.

If you are successful in proving that the other party caused your accident and the injuries you received as a result, you may receive a monetary award. This award might help you to cover your medical bills, the loss of wages and other expenses related to the Texas motor vehicle accident.
