Determining Fault in Car Accidents: More Things You Can Do
Step 4 – Talk to any witnesses to the accident.
What witnesses to an accident saw prior, during and/or after a collision can also be vital in determining fault after car accidents. So, if you aren’t badly injured and have the capacity to talk to available witnesses at the scene of the accident, be sure that you do so and that you note:
- Witnesses’ contact information
- A general version of their events
- Whether witnesses saw anything that may be important to determining fault in the collision.
Step 5 – Carefully review a copy of the police report for the accident.
When it’s not possible to exchange information with drivers involved in an accident (for any reason), obtaining a copy of the police report for the accident and carefully reviewing it can reveal some crucial info that can help with determining fault in car accidents.
So, make a request to get a copy of the police report when it’s available. While you may have to pick up your copy from the police department and/or pay some minimal fees, you can also entrust this step to an experienced lawyer, who will know what to look for in police reports when determining fault in car accidents.
