There are certain situations where drivers who are involved in an auto accident will have completely different stories that they will tell their insurance companies or lawyers, making it difficult to tell who is actually at fault.
Auto accident reports are some of the best weapons that you can employ when it comes to auto accident cases, which is why it’s so important that you make sure you call a police officer after an auto accident where the damage exceeds $500.
Proving A Car Accident Case
Besides auto accident reports, there are other tools that can be used to win your auto accident case, including:
- Driver credibility
- Physical evidence
- A neutral witness report
In order for a driver to be credible, his or her story should be consistent throughout the case. It also helps if the driver has a clean driving record and doesn’t seem to be lying. Since both drivers have a personal stake in the case, they’ll both do everything they can to win. A neutral witness doesn’t have anything to gain from either individual, so his or her testimony can be more reliable than either party involved in the case.
As far as physical evidence, pictures of the accident can go a long way in helping to show who was truly at fault. Pictures are much like neutral witnesses in that they don’t have a personal stake in the case and will only show the truth of the matter.
