  • Driver error, recklessness, or carelessness
  • Driver negligence, including distracted driving, drunk driving, or even drowsy driving
  • Vehicle defects
  • Road defects
  • Construction crews
  • Government vehicles or work crews

In the aftermath of an accident, it can be difficult to remember what happened. Immediately after the accident, write down as many details as possible. Share the information with a Tacoma car accident attorney and allow them to help file a claim.

Gather Evidence Following a Crash

Evidence gathered during and after an accident is critical to the success of any lawsuit. Your attorney can collect evidence and request a copy of the police report. Victims might also have evidence to share given their experience at the accident scene. Evidence commonly used during a lawsuit stemming from a car accident includes:

  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Driver’s statements
  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Expert testimony

An accident reconstruction specialist can explain how the crash unfolded. An automotive expert can explain how one of the vehicles was defective, or records obtained from the manufacturer or another entity might demonstrate that one of the vehicles was defective, ill-maintained, or damaged prior to the accident.

Compensation after an auto accident in Tacoma breaks down into several components, including:

  • Medical expenses
