At Michles & Booth, we know a thorough investigation is vital to each of our clients’ cases. Too often in auto accident cases, insurance companies deny that their drivers did anything wrong, forcing the victims to prove—often years after an accident—that the defendant was at fault.
The trained investigators employed by Michles & Booth locate witnesses, inspect vehicles, survey the scene, and reconstruct the accident, documenting key pieces of evidence to prove your case when the defendant tries to avoid responsibility.
An example of how important a comprehensive investigation can be to a case occurred several years ago when one of our investigators employed by our firm, armed with a single photo and a computer, solved a wrongful death case on the fourth day of trial, bringing closure to a grieving family and a $2.1 million verdict from a Polk County jury.
In this case, Michles & Booth hired Brian Barton as an expert to testify at trial where he became a key player in solving a riddle that had gone unobserved for years. As Brian tells it, “One night I got to messing with the pictures and working the zoom feature on the photo suite for the Powerpoint cross-examination of the opposing expert, and we began to put the pieces together over a couple of days.” Diligent work, examination of the wiring diagrams, design schematics, and trips to a local Ford dealer led to the last-minute introduction of evidence that conclusively established what our clients had known all along—that the defendant was responsible for the entire accident.
This story clearly illustrates why we at Michles & Booth place so much emphasis on investigating our clients’ accidents. If you have been the victim of someone else’s negligence, do not delay and give the other party an opportunity to avoid responsibility.
