Witnesses play a key role in a car accident case, as well as in the insurance claims process. However, there are cases where there is no witness, or the witness does not want to come forward.
Although having a witness is important, the absence of witnesses does not overrule your right to make an accident claim. All you need to do is hire an experienced car accident attorney. Your attorney can effectively advocate for you using whatever evidence is available, including:
The Police Report
The police report usually includes both your and the other driver’s statements. It describes what happened in a clear and detailed manner.
Accident Scene Reconstruction
In some cases, reconstructing the accident scene can give a clearer picture of who was at fault. This has to be done with an accident reconstructionist, who can determine which vehicle had the right of way, the timline of the incident, how fast the cars were going, etc.
Your Own Evidence
Pictures of the accident scene, including the damage done to both vehicles from multiple angles, traffic signs, detours or anything relevant, is vital evidence in a car accident case. In addition, footage of the accident scene also plays an important role. The footage can be collected from various sources. Even if a traffic camera wasn’t placed in the area where the accident occurred, many commercial buildings have their own security cameras so you may be able to get the footage from them.
