Seeking the cause of a car accident
Posted on October 5, 2015 in Car Accidents
Car accidents involving passengers and pedestrians in congested Manhattan may have many causes. These may include running stop lights, using a personal electronic device, an impaired driver and even opening a car door in front of a passing bicyclist. Reckless taxi driving has also led to additional laws as part of the city’s Vision Zero project.
Seeking proof of liability compounds the injuries suffered in an accident or the loss of a family member in a fatal crash. Police reports, blood alcohol content results, witness statements, service records and other evidence has to be obtained in a timely manner. Experts are often needed to provide testimony or analyze evidence.
Evidence and proof is also required to determine the extent of injuries and other losses, such as medical expenses and lost wages, thatare incurred. In a wrongful death case, expertise is required to determine damages for issues such as pain and suffering, anticipated income and loss of affection.
