What evidence do you need to make car accident injury claims in East Staffordshire?
When a road traffic accident occurs, the driver or road user responsible often admits their liability and is extremely apologetic. As no-one sets out to cause an accident, the person responsible for the incident is often in a state of shock and may even have suffered injuries themselves.
If the person responsible for the incident admits their liability, it may be fairly easy for you to make car accident injury claims in East Staffordshire. However, in some cases, people may try to deny their involvement or limit their own liability.
If the person who caused the accident doesn’t admit their liability straightaway, this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to obtain compensation from them.
Although you will need to prove that you weren’t responsible for the incident in order to obtain compensation, there are various way to do this.
In some cases, road traffic accident investigators are used to determine exactly how an incident occurred. By looking at the road and the affected vehicles, they can often piece together a timeline of events which can determine exactly who is responsible for the incident.
If other people saw the incident occur, they are often able to provide a witness statement which can help to confirm who caused the accident.
Whilst many accidents are caught on CCTV cameras, the increasing use of smartphones and digital cameras means that a passer-by may have footage of the incident occurring. If so, this could be used to prove how the incident occurred and who is responsible for it.
