Time Is Of The Essence In Auto Accident Investigations
Daniel J. Chiacchia, an experienced car accident attorney in Hamburg, NY explains the importance of auto accident investigations and how to ensure nothing in your case is overlooked.
When we receive a call from a person who was involved in a collision or some other accident, our first questions are, “Did you get photographs? Is the scene the way it was? What happened to the vehicles? Where are the vehicles?” We want to obtain pictures of the vehicles right away, and we want to make sure the vehicles’ black boxes are preserved. The best time for us to get involved with an investigation is immediately; we want to see things in exactly the condition they were at the time of the accident. We can only see the condition of the location of the accident if someone takes photographs.
When it comes to automobile claims, memories can become unreliable. People who may have witnessed an accident may provide one version of events a day after the accident, but make an entirely different claim several months later. In these cases, the devil is in the details, and every aspect of the case must be solid before litigation can begin. The investigation stage is critical, and that makes it imperative for people to contact their attorneys as soon as they are able.
If you were involved in an auto accident, one of the most crucial aspects of determining fault is done in the early stages of auto accident investigations.
