How a Witness Can Affect an Accident Claim
Witnesses can provide vital evidence in a car accident claim because they offer an objective point of view on the accident. A witness statement may be able to provide you with the information you need to support your claim and discredit the other party’s version of events. They also are able to emphasize inconsistent statements the other driver gave.
To successfully get compensation for your claim, it is important to prove the other driver was in some way negligent. Whether they failed to follow traffic rules, they were speeding, or they drove through a stop sign, witnesses may be proven to have made a statement that helps explain how one of the drivers was negligent. – maybe he or she saw the driver texting or running through a red light.
Because witnesses don’t know either driver, they are unbiased and have gained no benefit from the outcome of the claim, their accounts can often make or break a case.
