Gathering the right evidence after a car crash

In the immediate aftermath of a shocking accident, it can be difficult for Minnesota residents to explain what happened. After a sudden car crash, for example, the individual who was hit by another vehicle may be at a loss to understand what just transpired. In the minutes, days and weeks after the accident, the pieces of the puzzle can start to come together as to how the accident was caused. Those involved in the incident can tell their sides of the story, while witnesses who observed the event may also shed light on what they saw. There may also be other evidence that can come into play when the cause of a crash is in dispute, like accident reconstruction reports that explain how the accident was likely to have occurred.

Recently, this blog has discussed the serious problem that is posed by distracted driving. In the aftermath of an accident, evidence can also arise that shows the crash was caused by distracted driving. For example, in the absence of an admission by the other driver, there may be cell phone records or social media posts that show that driver was on his or her smartphone in the moments before the crash happened.

Our firm has experience with the importance of gathering evidence to demonstrate how a car accident that injured our clients was caused. We are used to examining whether issues like distracted driving may have played a part in a crash, and we have put in place strategies for gathering the right evidence, demonstrating how the other driver was distracted at the time of the crash and obtaining compensation for our clients.
