Can Phoenix Police Really Judge Who is at-Fault in an Auto Accident?

Do you know who is at-fault in an auto accident?

How to know who is at-fault in an auto accident? The aftermath of a car accident is scary. Crushed and twisted metal, injured parties, and swarms of Phoenix or Chandler police seem to be everywhere. What makes the situation even worse is when you know you weren’t to blame for the accident, but investigators are pointing their fingers in your direction. You know you weren’t at-fault for the auto accident, but how can you prove that?

Can the police, who weren’t there when the accident occurred, really be the best judges of who is at-fault in a auto accident?

There’s no simple answer. Every case is different, and your personal injury lawyer will let you know that from the beginning. However, a lawyer who cares about digging into the specifics of your case may uncover evidence that proves the other party was at-fault–even if police issued you a citation or blamed you as the at-fault in an auto accident.

How to Help Your Lawyer Help You With Your Car Accident When You Weren’t At-Fault

Whether you were in an ordinary car accident, a pedestrian accident, or a motorcycle accident (or any other kind of vehicle accident, for that matter), you can help your lawyer by presenting your side of the story during your initial consultation. The attorney will be able to determine whether you’re likely to be eligible to receive damages; and if she believes you will, she may agree to take your case.

That said, some cases really are just accidents. Sometimes nobody is at-fault in an auto accident; that’s why you should always call a lawyer who offers a free initial consultation. Your lawyer will give you her professional opinion based on the circumstances surrounding your case.

Provide your attorney with copies of the police report from your accident. There may be helpful information that she can use. Even if there isn’t, it’s a good idea to give it to her so that she knows what to expect from the other side. That way, she can build a strategy based on having all the facts.

Sometimes police aren’t the best judges of who is at-fault in an auto accident, and it’s not really their fault. They weren’t there…but you were, and that’s the story your attorney is going to need to hear so that she can fight for your rights. No one wants to be considered the at-fault in an auto accident.

So I suffered a tragic motorcycle accident leaving me injured and quite unhappy…… also the bike was totaled. This all star law team secured a large settlement for all my suffering. This process was very well advised by an aggressive and determined lawyer. All I can say is now I’m left a very happy man. Thank you karissa for working quick to bring my tragic story to a much warmer end. Just call them! You won’t regret it!

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
