Evidence You Can Use in Your Plano Car Accident
One of the first questions the car accident claims process seeks to answer is who is liable for your accident and losses. We begin by looking at every aspect of your case, searching for clues about what happened and who is responsible. Some car accident cases involve a more straightforward determination of liability.
However, filing any personal injury claim or lawsuit will require evidence to prove fault, prove your losses, and prove the seriousness of your injuries. Some types of evidence that could be helpful with proving a car accident case include:
- Police reports or accident reports
- Witness statements
- Physical evidence
- Photo evidence
- Video footage of the accident or scene
- Expert testimony
- Medical evidence
Your lawyer can use these or other forms of evidence to prove fault in your case. For instance, if you suspect your car accident was caused by a drunk driver, your lawyer will collect evidence that the driver was intoxicated at the time of the offense. Such evidence may include a blood alcohol concentration report, police report, photos of alcohol containers in the vehicle, or an admission from the driver.

Statute of Limitations
Many car accident cases may settle without having to go to trial. However, in the event that you need to exercise your right to take your case to court, you should know that you have just two years after the accident to begin the process of filing a lawsuit. This statute of limitations is described in Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003.
A lawyer can tell you about any other deadlines that may apply to your case.
