Your Attorney Will Gather Evidence
When you are seriously injured in an accident, the sooner you hire an attorney, the better the outcome for your case. This is because the first set in preparing a strong accident claim is gathering evidence at the scene of the accident. As time passes, evidence will be more difficult to gather. Types of evidence that is often gathered from a car accident scene include the following.
- Photos taken at the time of the accident
- Tire markings on the pavement
- Footage from traffic or security cameras
- Photos of the area including traffic signs, signals, pedestrian walkways, homes and businesses surrounding the area
- Police reports
- Repair reports and photos of the damaged vehicles
- Contact information of witnesses
Analyzing Evidence to Determine Fault
Once the evidence has been gathered, your attorney can consult with experts to interpret the evidence and determine fault. The expert can analyze evidence and create a video that reproduces the events of the accident. An accurate analysis of evidence can provide the answers needed to present a strong case. Questions evidence can often answer include the following.
- Who caused the accident?
- Was the at-fault driver impaired?
- Did road conditions or weather conditions contribute to the accident?
- Was the at-fault driver distracted?
- Did the victim contribute to the crash?
Your attorney may choose to conduct interviews with key witnesses if needed. As the victim of an accident, there may be details from the accident that you are either unaware or forgot in the aftermath of the crash. Others who saw the accident can provide valuable information to help your case. If possible, after being involved in an accident, gather contact information from anyone who witnessed the accident.
Police Report Corrections
Sometimes errors can be made on the police report. One of the most important pieces of evidence in your claim is the police report. It is up to you and your attorney to make sure the police report accurately reflects what happened.
Police officers trained in auto accident assessment investigate the scene and talk to drivers, victims, and witnesses. They then write up an official police report back at the station. Sometimes a police officer at the scene is under pressure and may be rushed. They can and do make mistakes on accident reports. It is important that your claim gets the correct information on the report as quickly as possible.
Knowledge of the Law
The best asset your attorney will bring to your case is their knowledge and experience. An attorney will be aware of any statutes of limitations that apply to your case and will know how to pursue every possible source of compensation. Along with making a claim for property damage and injuries, an attorney can help you pursue claims for general damages such as pain and suffering, lost wages, and mental anguish.
