Hello, i was recently involved in a motorbike accident. the third party tried to do a u turn, i was travelling on the right hand lane and the car turned this caused me to knock into her. I was injured from the accident and my solicitors are on no win no fee situation. so the liability is still going on, i have a cctv footage that shows the car emerging from a parking area and trying to do the turn, its not very clear since it happens at a further distance, however a witness has given out evidence on how the accident occured and is blaming me for the accident. The witness is clearly lying since she said that the car was stopped for a while, and i knocked into her. I have told my solicitor about that but she explained to me that she is an independent witness, and still waiting on the statement from her so i can see what she has put down, she was not allowed to perform a u - turn because it had white crossed lines, Should I be worried, because this witness is clearly lying how the accident had occured.
If you can tell she is clearly lying I'm sure the professionals will also tell. Don't stress it. My cousin had a witness stating things that did not really happen I can't say what but he didnt get in much trouble because he denyed what the witness was saying and even offered to take a lie detector test. So just hold your ground and dont back down.
Hold your peace, as long as you are telling the truth you shouldn't be worried. If there is a CCTV, it can tell if the witness is lying. Be prepared because the opposite party will do everything to win so be aggressive as well in looking for evidences. All the best of luck!
You have to hire a lawyer who can disprove the claim of others and prove yours. You can ask a help from lawyers at injuryattorneylaw.com. There are many ways to twist a story and you have to demonstrate that you are the one who is telling the truth. In court, it is always the battle of evidence more than the truth.
At this point, it's all in how your lawyer will handle your case. Only you can tell whether or not you have a good lawyer by your side. Keep all clear evidences with you. Otherwise, some evidences might be presented by the other party that could be taken against you and you will be left with nothing. Anyway, continue working with your lawyer. Although witnesses can be considered strong and clear evidences to prove the accident, the evidences you have (such as the video) in your hands would still matter. According to accidentattorneyhelp.com, your testimony can also be considered as a proof as well.
