How does a victim prove negligence in a car accident? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

One of the easiest ways to prove a driver was at fault in a crash is to examine whether or not that driver violated any traffic laws. Each driver has a legal duty to follow all of the state and municipal traffic laws and to avoid any behavior or actions that would put others on the road in danger. If it can be proven that the driver broke one or more traffic laws and that was what caused the crash, that driver can be held liable for any losses the injured victim has suffered.
