Car accidents unfortunately happen every day. Our roads are occupied by thousands of cars each day and there is always a big chance that you can run into a car accident. There are minor accidents and there are also unfortunate instances when these accidents on the road cause death.
If you have been in a car accident, you can file a car accident claim, though the fault and liabilities on any road accident needs to be determined to know who should be held accountable. There are two or more vehicles involved and it is necessary to know the circumstance of the accident and who is at fault.
In car accidents, to see who is at fault, the Common Law was created to recognize the basic faults in these accidents.

Misconduct that is intentional
Motor vehicle codes are also being implemented and followed. It can get a bit confusing to know who is accountable to accidents and who the victims of the circumstance are. It will have to be investigated first and the state law will be the one who has the last say as to who needs to pay for damages or for the injuries that the accident have caused.
