You can fight a claim that your accident was inevitable

When you are in a car accident, the last thing you want to find out is that the authorities believe it to be an inevitable accident. An inevitable accident is one that occurs without negligence as a cause. For instance, if a driver couldn't have anticipated black ice on the road and was driving cautiously, then the accident may be seen as inevitable because of the factors beyond either driver's control.

While this can be good for the person who should have been at fault, the fact for you is that no one is liable for the accident. That means it can be harder for you to get the compensation you want following the accident, since you have to make a claim through your own insurer.

If you've lost a loved one in the crash, then this outcome can be devastating. Now, no one is being held accountable for actions that took someone you love away from you. It's possible that if you can prove there were negligence-related factors involved in the crash that you'll be able to claim against the other driver for your loved one's wrongful death.

What kinds of things can you use to prove negligence? If you have a dash camera that caught the other driver on his or her phone when the crash happened or if you can show that he or she was speeding at a nearby speed camera, then you may be better able to build a case. Our website has more information about how you can fight back when you want to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
