Who Is at Fault for My Milwaukee Car Accident?

If you’ve been hurt on the road, you need compensation from the right parties. Sadly, it’s tough to get compensation if you’re not sure who’s responsible for the suffering you’ve felt. Worse, you might not have the tools or resources needed to find the right person. 

At the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg, we know that finding the responsible party can be difficult, which is why we’re here to help. We can review the factors that affected your crash, and we can guide you through the claims process.

Dangerous Drivers

As a driver, you might already realize that a lot of drivers don’t have your best interests in mind. They may be driving aggressively, distracted, drowsy, or even drunk. All these states can affect the quality of their driving, which means they may be especially dangerous. 

If you were hit by another driver, that driver is often the at-fault party. However, if that driver was at work, you may need to file a claim against their employer. Commercial drivers aren’t immune to distractions and other factors, but their employer may be financially liable for those actions.

Auto Manufacturers

In other cases, you might have lost a tire or suffered a major mechanical malfunction. That malfunction caused you to lose control of your car and crash, leaving you with broken bones and other major injuries. However, you might be a little confused—your car showed no signs that any parts were damaged or worn. 

When a part is defective, your car crash may be the responsibility of the manufacturer. They’re responsible for making sure their product is safe for the public. If they fail to do so, they could face financial penalties for their actions. 

Dangerous Road Defects

Sometimes, it’s the road itself that leads to major injuries and trauma. You might have been following all traffic laws, but you hit a deep pothole. That pothole was deep enough to damage your tire, and you lost control of your vehicle. You might have even hit another car while crashing, which makes your claim even more complex. 

In these cases, the Department of Transportation for your area may be at fault. They’re responsible for the upkeep of these roads, so if they neglect to do their job, they could be held responsible for your Milwaukee car accident.
