Traffic Collision Investigation Questions

What is a traffic collision investigation?

A traffic collision investigation may be carried out by the police or the law enforcement authorities, after an accident, to report the cause of the accident and how it took place. This report may be used later as a piece of evidence if any of the parties involved in the accident sues the other party. However, there could be certain aspects of a traffic collision investigation that individuals may find difficult to grasp on their own and may need the help of a professional in understanding better. Given below are common questions about traffic collision investigations that are answered by the Experts.

Can skid marks help in determining the direction in which a vehicle was headed in a traffic collision investigation?

In most situations, skid marks may be helpful in traffic collision investigations. They help to understand where the brakes were applied, what the speed of the vehicle was when the accident took place, what the location of the vehicle was at the time of impact, what the direction of the vehicle was and which of the tires were moving when the accident took place.

Can an individual sue the at-fault party with careless driving in an accident after the traffic collision investigation has been done and a report has been submitted?

In most situations, a decision to sue an at-fault party in an accident may be taken after the traffic collision investigation is done and a report is submitted. In such a situation, the at-fault party may attend the hearing and explain to the court how the accident happened. They may request the court to reduce the penalty for the accident.

What can an individual do if they have been falsely accused of being responsible for an accident in a traffic collision report?

It may be difficult for an individual to prove that they have been falsely accused of being responsible for an accident in a traffic collision report if they do not have a witness to support their claim. In such a situation, the individual may hire a private investigator to see if the person accusing them has any connection with the other witnesses supporting their claim and prove their statements wrong.

How can an individual prove that the at-fault driver was driving over the speed limit at the time of the accident if they were not given a traffic ticket?

If the at-fault driver was not given a driving ticket for driving over the speed limit at the time of the accident, then the individual may refer to the traffic collision investigation report made by the police to prove that they were driving over the speed limit. The individual may also sue the at-fault driver for any damages using the traffic collision investigation report as proof.

What can an individual do if a traffic collision investigation report created by the police is wrong?

If a traffic collision investigation report created by the police is faulty, the individual may file a complaint about it with the law enforcement agency and request that the report be corrected.

It may not always be easy for you to understand a traffic collision investigation report. Sometimes you may not know what steps to take if there are errors in the traffic collision investigation report and it may leave you feeling lost and helpless with many questions left unanswered. In these situations, direct your queries to an Expert who can offer professional insights and information to help you handle your case quickly and smoothly.

    And the police officer would only cite me at the time, correct?
  • I'm going to start over since my followup question has taken

    I'm going to start over since my followup question has taken more than 45 minutes to get answered -- a good 35 minutes longer than any previous question I've ever asked. My first question: I was driving in an urban area approx. 15-25 mph and suddenly realized
    I was a bit closer to a cyclist than usual. Nothing happened at the time, no contact and I continued driving. But I'll admit having this cyclist so close to my car has left me a little nervous. Since nothing happened at the time -- no contact as far as I could
    tell, and certainly the cyclist never stopped at the moment -- is there still any way the cyclist could subsequently report me? Writing this appears quite irrational, as I suppose cyclists could constantly cite cars after the fact. So should I be worried about
    anything? Certainly of course I want to be that much more careful given that more and more cyclists are on the streets these days. ... as you'll see, an excellent attorney gave me a very good answer. But I'd like a little information. - Nothing happened as
    far as I know - There was no incident to my knowledge at the time -- that is, to my knowledge - After all, the cyclist didn't stop. - Certainly I didn't feel anything - So is there any plausibility to the cyclist later deciding to report something? Again,
    nothing at the time and it's hard to believe there'd be any case at a later date. Yes, just seeking reassurance. Thank you.

    This is the situation:
    A manages property for B and has been doing so for 20 years. A suspects that B has dementia. Because of B's behavior, A can no longer deal rationally with B with respect to the property A manages for B. Would there be any liability to A if he terminates the property management agreement with B? The state is California.
