It is rare, but there are some situations when a motorist collides with another vehicle, but they are not at fault. If you hit a car but need to prove the other driver or a third party actually caused the accident, you will want to enlist the help of an attorney who handles car accident cases regularly.
At Sevenish Law Firm, P.C., we only take on personal injury cases in and around Indianapolis. We know what it takes to prove this type of car accident case and recover a payout.
You Can Hit Another Vehicle and Not Be Liable for the Accident
It is possible to hit another vehicle and not be liable for the damage done or any injuries suffered. These cases can be difficult to prove, but it is not impossible. For example, imagine a vehicle pulls out in front of you and then slams on the brakes. You crash into their rear. It was their careless driving that caused the accident so they should be at fault.
This may also happen if someone changes lanes quickly in front of you, or if they swerve into you and you swerve to avoid them but hit another car. In any of these cases, the cause of the accident may not always be as it seems at first glance. There are some cases where we may need to dispute the police report to prove fault in a rear-end collision, for example.

We Can Prove Fault and Liability in Your Indianapolis Car Accident
To help you recover a payout through an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, we need to show how the other driver’s negligence or carelessness led to the accident and your injuries.

- Interviewing eyewitnesses who saw the accident and what caused it
- Obtaining any available video of the accident or interactions leading to the accident
- Working with an accident reconstruction specialist
- Collecting any other available evidence to prove your case, like an accident report from the City of Indianapolis.

It is important that you beware of discount law firms offering you a great deal by slashing their rate to take on your car accident case. These cases are complex and difficult to prove. Discount attorneys are jacks of all trades but masters of none. Choosing our firm may mean paying a higher rate, but that is irrelevant if we can identify more damages and negotiate a larger settlement.
