Achieving success in an auto accident case requires many things. One of those things is the ability to locate, collect, and organize all of the evidence that supports your version of the events that led to the collision. You may need photographs, eyewitness accounts, official reports, and expert opinions. A piece of evidence that contains a statement from the other driver that backs up your assertions can be especially helpful. When it comes to amassing all of these pieces of evidence and then putting them together in one cohesive and persuasive case, rely upon the skill and experience of a knowledgeable New York car accident attorney to give your lawsuit what it needs for success.
An example of this type of scenario played out recently in a case from Brooklyn. The case involved an intersection collision between a taxi and a scooter. The two vehicles were traveling in opposite directions on Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn when they collided at the intersection of Park Place.
The scooter driver, Teddy, sued for the injuries he suffered in the accident. Teddy sought summary judgment to hold the taxi driver liable. The scooter driver’s theory of the case was that the taxi driver was in the process of attempting a left turn when he improperly failed to yield the right of way and made an illegal left turn right into the path of Teddy’s scooter.
