At Simeone & Miller, LLP, we strive to do everything we can to build
the strongest case possible for our clients. One of the most important
ways our team works to achieve this goal is through scene investigations.
A scene investigation is a very useful tool in obtaining information in
the early stages of a personal injury case. During scene investigations,
we obtain photographs and video footage of the scene of the accident.
This is especially important if the scene changes over time, such as through
road construction and building repairs. It is also vital that the scene
be documented in the same conditions at the time of the accident, including
lighting, road conditions, etc.
During our most recent scene investigation, we took pictures for an accident
that occurred at an Embassy in Washington, D.C. We have also visited restaurants,
public sidewalks, and garages, just to name a few of the many locations
we visit to obtain information for a case.
We have found that scene investigations utilizing photographs, video footage,
and witness interviews often lead to the discovery of information which
is very useful during settlement negotiations or trial. These investigations
have proven to be a helpful method of obtaining information early on and
getting the best possible results for our clients. In many instances,
investigations conducted as soon as possible after an accident can make
the difference in winning the case later on.
If you have been hurt in a car accident, consult with a Washington, D.C.
lawyer at Simeone & Miller, LLP. We know what it takes to thoroughly
and properly investigate the scene of an accident to uncover information
that can help maximize your recovery. To get started, please
