Determining fault in a car accident can be a daunting task. For a number of reasons, your accident may be a result of ‘human error’ or ‘mechanical fault’. Human error means that the accident was caused by a driver. In this case, the driver of the car will be obligated to compensate you for your injuries or loss. Some examples of human error cover impairment or distraction, and may include speeding, running a red light, texting while driving, distracted driving, drunk driving, and failing to yield the right of way.
