Holding Dallas Drivers Accountable for Negligence

Car accidents can result in serious injuries and fatalities. In 2022 alone, there were 4,481 deaths on Texas roads, making it all the more vital for Dallas drivers to be alert and know their rights should anything happen to them.

Car crashes can occur without warning due to a variety of factors. Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving: This entails any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road, such as texting, eating/drinking, conversing with others in the vehicle, or adjusting car controls (e.g., music volume or AC).
  • Reckless driving: Examples of reckless driving include road rage and excessive speeding.
  • Traffic violations: Disregarding Texas traffic laws, such as using a signal and obeying traffic lights, can result in car accidents.
  • Faulty machinery: In some cases, the vehicle itself may pose a problem, such as in the case of malfunctioning machinery or defects. This can result in loss of control for drivers and increase the risk of car crashes.
  • Environmental factors: Car accidents tend to tick upward during bad weather, such as rain, snow, and sleet. It’s important to exercise caution when driving in hazardous weather conditions.
  • Heavy traffic: High-volume traffic can also increase the rate of car accidents. Given the intensity of Dallas traffic, it’s critical for drivers to stay alert at all times to avoid being injured in motor vehicle crashes.
  • Road hazards: Items and objects on the road can also cause car accidents, such as oil slicks, potholes, or tire fragments. Other examples include animals or children running out into the street, forcing drivers to react quickly.

Who Is Liable for Damages in a Car Accident?

In Texas, “liability” refers to the legal and financial responsibility for an accident. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, various parties can be held liable for car accidents in Dallas. Common examples include:

  • Fellow drivers: Other drivers are commonly held liable for car accidents. From reckless driving to distracted driving to operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, many factors can contribute to disastrous consequences on Texas roads.
  • Pedestrians or cyclists: In rare cases, pedestrians may be held liable for accidents involving illegal violations, such as jaywalking or failing to obey traffic laws.
  • Vehicle manufacturers: In some instances, the vehicle manufacturer may be held liable for the car accident if it resulted from faulty or malfunctioning equipment.
  • The city: Sometimes, the city may be held liable for car accidents if they fail to uphold their duties and obligations, such as failing to repair potholes, eliminate construction debris, or sustain proper road maintenance.

Proving Negligence in a Car Accident

Securing compensation after a car accident can be complex, even for badly injured parties. It’s crucial to seek sound counsel from a Dallas car accident attorney as soon as possible after being injured in a car crash, as they can direct your steps wisely to maximize the value of your claim.

In Texas personal injury cases, the injured party (“plaintiff”) bears the burden of proof in the case, meaning that it’s the responsibility of the victim to prove that the defendant’s negligence directly caused their injury. To successfully establish liability and recover damages after a car accident, claimants must establish four core elements:

  1. Duty of Care: The plaintiff must prove that the offending party owed them a certain standard of care. For example, injured drivers can reasonably expect other motor vehicle operators to follow the rules of the road, such as coming to a stop at red lights and yielding the right-of-way when appropriate.
  2. Breach of Duty: The claimant must prove that, by acting negligently, the defendant breached their duty of care, resulting in the car accident.
  3. Damages: The victim must demonstrate that they sustained compensatory injuries (“damages”) as a result of the defendant’s negligence. Failure to do so can result in the dismissal of the personal injury claim.
  4. Causation: The plaintiff must prove that the defendant’s negligence directly caused their injury, resulting in compensatory damages.

Proving negligence in car accidents entails various legal complexities and requires an in-depth understanding of Texas personal injury laws. It’s important to consult with a trusted car accident attorney in Dallas to fortify your case with sufficient evidence and adequately prepare for upcoming negotiations, as many insurers will attempt to take advantage of claimants through deceptive language or lowball settlements in hopes of evading a fair payout.
