Injuries in Two-Vehicle Accidents
Serious injuries caused by automobile accidents often require hospitalization, surgery, recovery periods, and other expenses. Serious injuries also mean that many people are unable to work for a time and cannot earn a living. The lawyer in charge of your case can calculate the financial losses and damages resulting from pain and suffering. If your injury and inability to work are ongoing, the lawyer can calculate future expenses and add them to your compensation claim.
Conducting the Investigation Into a Yolo County Two-Vehicle Accident
In determining whether the other driver was responsible for the Yolo County two-vehicle accident, the attorney investigates the crash. By doing so, the injured can pursue compensation for their injuries because the lawyer will gather the evidence to support your claim. Investigations may be conducted in the following areas:
- Police reports: Police accident reports are scrutinized for errors that may prevent injured parties from filing claims. If an error is found, the lawyer can attach a correction that shows the report has a mistake.
- Surveillance cameras: An examination of surveillance cameras in the area, such as from businesses, homes, and traffic lights, determines whether the accident was recorded. Those video records can be subpoenaed to use as proof of fault.
- Witnesses: During the investigation, witnesses to the accident are interviewed so it can be confirmed how the intersection collision took place. In some cases, a witness captured the accident on their cell phone as it occurred, which provides compelling evidence.
- Accident reconstruction: To substantiate the compensation claim, photographs of the accident site are taken, and the accident is reconstructed. Insurance companies and courts widely use this evidence as proof of fault.
