Witnesses can be very valuable in helping accident victims prove their case. While those injured in accidents are often surprised by the events swirling around them, witnesses can often describe what happened before, during and after an accident. Thus, they may be able to provide extremely important information about who was at fault. It should also be noted that even witnesses who did not actually see an accident might be able to provide very relevant input. If they saw the victim immediately after the accident, they may be able to confirm his or her pain and discomfort.
Sometimes, witnesses may hear statements that give an indication of fault. In any case, witnesses should be contacted as soon as possible.
