Workers' Comp Attorneys of Darwin F. Johnson Discuss Determination of Fault in Auto Accident Cases


Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/05/2018 -- As workmans' comp attorneys in Atlanta, The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson wants their clients to be informed and up-to-date on all state laws and regulations that can potentially affect their cases. That's their team has recently taken the liberty of going through some of the rules that are relevant to auto accident claims, specifically focusing on what goes into determining who is at fault.

According to these well-known workers' comp attorneys in Atlanta, the most significant player in determining will be the insurance company and kind of insurance that the drivers in the case hold. Auto insurance falls into two categories: no-fault and at-fault. No-fault insurance essentially means that regardless of who was at-fault in a given car accident, all involved parties will go through their own insurance company to pay for any vehicle damage and medical bills.

With at-fault insurance, the party responsible for the accident must cover any costs caused by the crash. The state of Georgia follows the at-fault rule, allowing injured parties to sue the driver found to be at-fault for the full amount of monetary damages.

The team at Darwin F. Johnson also states that car accident victims should become familiar with the concept of comparative negligence. According to the comparative negligence law, varying percentages of fault are assigned to the parties involved. Johnson emphasizes that it is critical to know that while Georgia follows the comparative negligence law, they follow a modified version stipulating that parties found to be 50% or more at-fault cannot recover any damages from the other party.
