If you or a loved one has been in a serious car accident, there is a lot to know about who may be legally at-fault. Liability can, and often does, go far beyond the driver who hit you.

For example, if the design or characteristics of the roadway or surrounding areas contributed to the circumstances of the accident or crash, then the applicable municipality/county and/or other third parties may be responsible as well.

If the driver was intoxicated by alcohol consumed at an establishment that is licensed to serve alcohol, then the bar or restaurant may be responsible as well.

If the driver was acting in the course and scope of his or her employment (i.e. running a work errand) at the time of the crash, then the employer may be responsible as well.

serious car accident may involve dynamics far beyond the drivers (or bikes or pedestrians) involved.

It is important to consult with a skilled attorney to determine the appropriate legal theories in your case.
