Unfortunately, not every accident is investigated by the Gardai. Some are classed as minor accidents and if no-one was hurt, an investigation is not usually deemed necessary. Normally there will be a brief Garda report on the incident, providing only basic or scant information. This could leave you in a vulnerable position in regards to litigation. It could be that you have no witnesses to your version of the accident and suddenly there are witnesses on the other side. Where does this leave you? Often on the losing side of an insurance compensation claim.
Accident Investigations Cover More than Just Car Accidents
When we think about accident investigations we automatically think of car accidents, but this is just a small part of it. We at City Investigations conduct the following accident investigations:
- accidental damage incidents including structural damage
- road traffic accidents
- frost damage
- suspected arson
During the accident investigation our investigators use the very latest technology to ensure that you are armed with 3D accident reconstructions. We will take photographs, draw diagrams and document precisely the accident scene, including scale diagrams if required. Our investigators professionally photograph vehicles, products, and injuries. In addition they can canvass for and interview witnesses.
Our experienced investigators can locate witnesses, obtain witness statements and ensure that vital evidence in accident investigations is in your defence folder and not in the plaintiff's, which can turn a frustrating insurance claim into a revoked insurance claim. Having an accident involving property damage or loss is a stressful time in anyones life and we at City Investigations will endeavour to obtain the most accurate and up to date information for your defence.
