Strengthening Your Auto Accident Claim: The Role of Eyewitnesses

Eyewitnesses play a critical role in seeking fair compensation after a car accident. Let’s discuss the main points in leveraging witnesses to maximize your claim.

The Power of Eyewitnesses

Eyewitnesses are the individuals present at the scene of the accident. They are an unbiased 3rd party offering on objective account of what happened.

Witness Credibility: The Foundation of Your Claim

Insurance companies, judges, and juries rely heavily on eyewitness accounts to reconstruct the accident accurately and assess liability.
