Have you recently been in a car accident? As anyone who has experienced an accident scene can attest, they are hectic and stressful places. There are a lot of people milling around trying to gather information and ascertain damage and injuries. However, once the cars and people have all left, it still remains an accident scene and place for inquiry. Private investigators can be employed by anyone involved in or affected by an accident. Lawyers, insurance companies, private parties, and even the local law enforcement may call on a PI to help with the investigation. Here are some areas a private investigator can help in at an accident scene.

Gather Information

Depending on the people involved in the accident and the severity, information can be misinterpreted or even skewed. If there was a high profile person involved in the accident, their legal representation might want to ignore some of the details. A private investigator can work to gather all of the facts without a bias. They can spend time at the accident scene taking pictures, measuring, interviewing witnesses, and gathering any other information they can find to provide an accurate picture of the accident.

Provide Clarity

Once a private investigator has investigated the accident scene, they can start developing a moment by moment image of the accident. Where there may have been questions or doubts as to how the accident took place, the PI can produce clarifying facts. These facts can prove the story that is already being developed by other parties, or it can disprove prior claims. The investigation can disprove fault or prove that a person was actually injured because of the accident. A private investigator’s job in an accident investigation is to produce a full picture of the accident in order to help provide clarity to the case and claims.

Stand for Truth

Private investigators can be called as witnesses in cases that are taken to court. Juries look at private investigators as authoritative figures, so they make great witnesses. As it is their job to investigate various situations and find out the truth, they are valuable assets. So whether they are hired by lawyers, private parties, insurance companies, or the local law enforcement, private investigators can often be seen on the scene of an accident.
