Witness Testimony Can Bolster Your Claim After an Auto Accident in Florida

If you need to file a personal injury claim after an auto accident, it can be incredibly helpful if you can find people who may have witnessed the crash and can testify to who or what they think was at fault. This is especially true if you have witnesses who you don’t know and can be considered impartial.

The following are some ways witness testimony can support your claim:

  • Establishing fault: You may use an eyewitness account to help establish fault in the accident. Witnesses can speak to what they saw happened in the minutes or seconds preceding the crash, including things you might not know yourself.
  • Determining injury: Your witnesses may also be able to testify to the extent of your injuries at the time of the collision. This can clear up any arguments that you had an existing injury that was not connected to the accident in question.
  • Credibility: A neutral third party can provide an unbiased account of what took place leading up to and during a car accident. If it’s your word against that of the other party involved in the crash, witnesses can clear up any inconsistencies.

Considering how useful witnesses can be to your case, you should make every effort to get the names, addresses and other contact information of anyone who saw your accident happen.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident, you may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages. For more information and advice, consult a knowledgeable Bradenton personal injury lawyer with Shapiro, Goldman, Babbonni & Walsh.
