Facts can play an important role in auto-pedestrian accidents

Our readers may have had this common experience: while recounting the details of a past event, they were interrupted by someone else who claims that the occurrence happened in a different way. Two people who were both present when the event occurred may have two varying recollections of how the event unfolded. This situation often happens when individuals are asked to recall how and why an automobile accident happened.

The parties to a vehicle crash may remember the facts of their case in different ways. For example, in a collision between a pedestrian and a car, a driver may claim that the pedestrian was not in the crosswalk when the incident occurred, while the pedestrian may remember that they were crossing in the crosswalk and with the crossing light when the car hit them in the street.

How the facts of a case play out may have a drastic impact on how a case resolves for or against a victim. Pedestrians and vehicle drivers both have duties to act responsibly when they are out on Ohio roads, but when incidents occur between them it is likely that one or both of the involved parties did something to put the parties in each other's paths. The facts of a case can give evidence as to which party is responsible for causing the accident and for the victim's harm.

A vehicle accident and personal injury attorney can help an auto-pedestrian accident victim collect factual evidence that will support their side of the story and their claims for damages. Through witness testimony, visual data and other evidence, a victim can build a strong case to support their recollection of the facts surrounding the incident.
