Important Information Regarding Accident Investigations

Comments Off

Your car is hit by another vehicle. You have so many issues to deal with within minutes of the impact. You may have sustained injuries that are temporary, some may require ongoing care and others could be life threatening. It is the details of the actual accident that could play a part in the level of compensation that you may be entitled to so it is important to know what information is going to play a part in the actual accident investigation.

Most personal injury attorneys have professional accident investigators that know exactly what information to look for to prove negligence and place blame on the party who is at fault. The right investigator will study the actual point of impact, look at the tire marks to determine the direction of each vehicle and a complete examination of both cars that were involved to look for additional proof of blame.

Witnesses to the accident will be interviewed and all areas will be covered to ensure an accurate account of the collision. A complete assessment of weather conditions, road conditions, and the workings of traffic lights in the vicinity of the accident. The driver’s past motor vehicle records could also be investigated and could show a history of speeding or DUIs or any number of driving violations.

The condition of the at-fault driver’s automobile may play a part in the accident and that is something that you may not know to investigate and or prove. If the car had defective brakes or bald tires, these issues could have played a part in how the accident occurred.
