How do you win a he said/she said car accident claim?

Is there a good way to win a he said/she said car accident claim? The other driver says that the accident was my fault, but I really think it was hers.

Answer
Unfortunately, it can be challenging to determine fault in a car accident. In those cases, it’ll come down to one driver’s word against the other’s. To win a he said/she said car accident case, you’ll need to gather evidence from:
  • The police report. Officers will usually help you file a report after an accident. It should include interviews and images, which may help you determine fault.
  • Each driver’s history. If either driver has a history of at-fault accidents or other pertinent experience, it may be worth mentioning. In he said/she said cases, credibility is very important.
  • Any physical evidence. Collecting images that show damages caused by the other driver can help build your case.
  • Neutral witness statements. It may be worthwhile to gather statements from third parties. If anyone witnessed the accident, the police likely interviewed them for their report.
After an accident, you may notice an increase in your insurance rate—regardless of whether you were at fault. To make sure you’re still getting the best rate for the coverage you need, try Jerry.
