The car crashed into the trailer, part of which was in the southbound lane, and became wedged underneath it near the rear wheels.

How many passengers were in each car? What did the other driver say to you, or what did you overhear them say to other people? These are just a few potential questions your client will need to answer. Elements such as the weather and location of the accident are also very important. Finally, the client (or their passengers) needs to take as many pictures as possible. Pictures need to be taken of both cars (from all angles) and of the area surrounding the accident. 2. Dont Admit Fault One of the biggest impediments to receiving repayments and insurance payouts is unknowingly admitting guilt and responsibility for the accident.

Four At-the-Scene Tips for Your Car Accident Client
View gallery Theodore Wafer, left, listens to his attorneys while appearing at his preliminary examination before Testifying for the defense, firearms expert David Balash said he believes the screen in the outer door was out of its frame before the shot was fired, a theory that suggests McBride may have knocked it out of place and raised Wafer’s fears. Prosecutors disagree. Dr. Kilak Kesha, who conducted the autopsy on McBride, testified that her blood-alcohol level was about 0.22, more than twice the legal limit for driving, but probably was even higher before she was shot because levels drop over time. He said she had been using marijuana. During cross-examination, defense attorney Cheryl Carpenter focused on alcohol, drugs and a possible head injury from the car crash. “Could a person get more aggressive after a brain injury?” she asked. “That’s possible,” Kesha replied, later saying McBride “absolutely” could have been quiet and withdrawn while drunk. In the courtroom, McBride’s supporters wore shirts bearing her image and the message, “Don’t shoot. Call 911.” They wish Wafer had called police instead of shooting McBride from inside his home. ___ Follow Ed White at http://twitter.com/edwhiteap Crime & Justice Washington (AFP) – China acted in an “irresponsible” way in a stand-off with a US naval ship this month in the South China Sea, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Thursday.
