A Houston Lawyer Helps after a Car Accident Leads You to File a Personal Injury Claim (Part B)
Behind the Scenes of a Houston Car Accident Claim
When investigators understand the kind of accident that occurred, they will be able to recreate what happened. If it can be determined in which direction the vehicles were traveling, for instance, and how fast they were traveling, it may be possible to conclude what the drivers may have witnessed before the collision.
Consider a rear-end collision at a stop sign, for instance. This kind of accident differs from a side-impact accident. In a rear-end collision, the driver in the rear should have noticed the car that he or she hit. However, with a side-impact crash, one driver may not have seen the other; that driver may have entered an intersection illegally.
If your car accident claim involves a crash where skid marks are absent and there are no signs that the driver tried to stop, it may be concluded that the driver who hit you didn't see you, perhaps because of a cell phone distraction.
