Road traffic accident claim how to prove: how do I prove driver error?
Road traffic accident claim how to prove: I wish to make a UK road traffic accident claim - how do I prove a driver was at fault in the eyes of the law?
A: Proving legal responsibility for your road traffic accident should be left to a UK specialist road accident solicitor, but as guidance there are two main considerations:
1. Evidence you can use to prove how you road traffic accident happened
There are a number of sources of evidence that your UK road traffic accident claims solicitor can use to prove how your RTA happened.
The most important source of information is the police accident report - the police should attend at the scene of a RTA if personal injuries are suffered and prepare a police report, which will include a sketch of the accident scene (including skid marks measurements); vehicle impact damage details as well as statements from the drivers involved and statements from any witnesses.
The police report is often conclusive in showing how your road accident happened and can be obtained by your road traffic accident solicitor at very little expense.

2. How to use the Highway Code in a road traffic accident claim to prove fault
The Highway Code can be used quite simply to prove who is at fault for your UK road traffic accident claim. As a rule of thumb the person who breaks the Highway Code is normally considered to be at fault and so responsible for your road traffic accident in the eyes of the law.
The list of road safety rules in the Highway Code is extensive and has just recently been revised (the first time in 9 years) so as to be even more detailed.
