Key pieces of evidence in car accident cases

With all the miles that you may drive in a certain year, you hardly expect to be in an accident. Nevertheless, no matter how careful you may be, an accident may happen. In these instances, it is helpful to have as much information as possible so that you can resolve the case without having to resort to legal action.

But in the event your situation does not resolve itself, it is helpful to know what information will be helpful in bolstering your case. This post will identify some key pieces in that regard. 

Police reports – The officers that respond to your accident may issue a citation to the other driver (or to you), but  keep in mind that officer will also be responsible for preparing a report that details what he or she saw at the scene. The key pieces of information in a police report include observations about the other driver being impaired drugs or alcohol or skid marks in the street.

Traffic citations – Evidence or statements that the other driver was convicted of a traffic violation can be helpful, as it can support the notion that the other driver failed to use reasonable care, and that such a failure was the proximate cause of the accident that led to the injury.

Damage to other vehicles – If a car was rear ended, chances are that the stationary car was not at fault.  Nevertheless, a thorough investigation can bolster your case.

If you have questions about how other pieces of evidence may work in a car accident case, an experienced attorney can help.
