The police report for our client said he was at fault. Goodman Acker proved different and won.
After a 9-year old boy was struck by a Jeep while he was crossing the street as his mother watched from her porch, police accused the 9-year-old of running out into the street and placed no fault on the driver of the Jeep.
The 9-year-old’s parents hired Goodman Acker to investigate whether or not the driver of the Jeep was at fault after the collision was captured on home surveillance equipment.
With the help of their accident reconstruction experts, Goodman Acker was able to determine that the driver of the Jeep was, in fact, traveling well in excess of the speed limit and was the cause of the collision. Goodman Acker also discovered that the driver had an extensive driving record and had been caught speeding in the same neighborhood before this incident.
Despite what the police determined at the scene, Goodman Acker was able to confirm that our client was not at fault for his injuries that had required multiple surgeries. Goodman Acker was able to ensure all of the child’s medical bills were paid, in addition to securing a six-figure settlement for his pain and suffering.
A police investigation at the scene of a crime or collision is not the determinative factor of fault. Police reports can be altered or disproved. This is because a police officer is not a traffic accident expert and the police report does not contain traffic accident analysis.
Goodman Acker takes the time to investigate each collision, hires the right experts, and exposes the truth so that justice can be served. If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile accident and the police report says you are at fault, you still may have a claim.
