A: I'm sorry about your accident, and I hope you are recovering from your injuries. If you consult with an attorney, they could outline for you your rights here, how quickly you need to move to preserve benefits and provide of notices of claim (depending on your jurisdiction and other facts), how some of the issues you mention will affect the ultimate determination of liability, and what measures you need to immediately take in terms of preserving your rights to the reimbursement of medical expenses. Many attorneys in these types of cases offer free initial consultations. Good luck.

A: You mention garda report. If your crash happened in Ireland you need to speak with an Irish attorney. This website is answered by American attorneys based on American law.

Under American Law it would depend on when it happened, the visibility at the time, etc.
