Dispelling the Mystery of Why an Accident Happened

To protect their clients’ rights, car accident lawyers investigate to reveal the causes of a car accident.

Author: Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP

The confusion in some car accidents can be overwhelming. Aside from the physical trauma involved with the collision, the underlying mystery of why an accident occurred can linger, perpetuating the accident trauma that everyone just wants to forget.

In a recent accident, Kerry Kennedy, daughter of the late Robert Kennedy and ex-wife of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo crashed her SUV into the back of a tractor-hauling trailer, driven by Rocco Scuiletti. Both vehicles left the scene of the accident without reporting it.

New York Times article quoted Kerry Kennedy as saying that she remembered getting onto the highway and had no further memory until she was stopped by a police officer at a traffic light. She was found slumped over the driving wheel and was subsequently medically examined for drugs. Neurologists thought she possibly suffered from a seizure. First medical reports showed no evidence of drugs or alcohol. A final toxicology report indicated traces of Ambian, a sleep-aid drug. She thought she might have inadvertently taken Ambian by mistake instead of her thyroid pill.

The truck driver and Kerry Kennedy were both charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident without reporting it.

When a car accident lawyer takes on these types of injury cases, thorough investigation is at the crux of legal efforts. By interviewing witnesses, reconstructing accidents, and employing other forensic investigation techniques, your lawyer puts together all the pieces of the incident. Many accidents have some elements of confusion or mystery. Aside from protecting your rights and seeking deserved compensation, you get some answers to what occurred. While monetary recovery provides some relief, dispelling the tremendous confusion associated with an accident can also bring greater peace of mind.
