What Are The Legal Rights and Responsibilities of the Drivers?

What Are The Legal Rights and Responsibilities of the Drivers

Whenever drivers are involved in car accidents, most often there will be someone who is found at-fault for the accident. This usually presents the need to establish negligence or recklessness by one or more drivers, in order to determine who is responsible for the damages that have been suffered. The plaintiff in this case must prove negligence in order to win a claim to compensation for their injuries.


When it comes to establishing negligence in a car accident case, the plaintiff must be able to prove the other driver acted in a way that violated the other driver by not holding up their duty to protect other drivers from harm by failing to maintain safe driving practices.

General Responsibility: By using roads and operating a motorized vehicle, drivers are agreeing to follow all laws surrounding driving. Drivers have the legal responsibility to drive safely in order to protect pedestrians, other motorists, and any passengers in their vehicle or on the roadway. If a diver fails to obey traffic laws, drivers in a reckless manner, is found negligent, or intoxicated, the plaintiff can argue this driver was not operating their vehicle in a safe manner, therefore presenting evidence for who is at-fault.
