The admission of a driver for causing an accident is certainly an important factor in deciding whether you have a case. Other factors include the exact circumstances of the wreck, including your own actions, and also the significance of the damages and injuries you incurred as a result of the car wreck.
When considering a party’s admission of fault following a car accident, it is important to note when the admission was said (ie. was it right after the accident?), whether it was verbal or written down, and the witnesses to the statement. These are important factors when considering if the admission can be used later on in court as evidence.
At an initial consultation, we typically ask our clients about the specific things they remember right after an accident, including if any statements were made by the other driver or if the other driver seemed disoriented or intoxicated. Noting these facts at the beginning of a case can aid greatly in its success.
