Liability in a
Car Accident

Home Car Accident Liability in a Car Accident


When pursuing a car accident injury claim in Texas, you will be required to prove that the other driver is liable for the crash – or at least more liable than you. Texas uses a modified comparative negligence rule, which means that you must prove the other driver was more than 50% responsible for the crash in order to recover compensation.

If you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, you owe it to yourself and your family to pursue compensation. Personal injury cases can be highly complex, and you will often be dealing with experienced insurance adjustors and attorneys who are paid to prevent large payouts. For this reason, it is crucial to retain a skilled Houston car accident attorney for your case. At Jerome Fjeld & Associates, PLLC, our lawyer has been dedicated to the rights of injury victims for more than a decade, and has recovered millions of dollars for our clients.

In the complex world of injury claims, there is a slight but important difference between who was at fault for the accident, and who is liable for the damages. For example, if a person rear ends you, they are almost always at fault for the accident. However, if another driver pushed their car into yours, then that driver may actually be liable for the damages. Generally speaking, the person at fault will be liable for the damages, but this is not always the case. Proving liability is probably the single most important component of a car accident case. The evidence you will need to prove liability will vary widely from case to case, but may include:

  • Police reports indicating the other driver was at fault
  • State laws which support your claim
  • The type of accident and damage caused
