It can be frightening not to remember what happened during a traumatic event such as a car crash, but you are not alone.
According to Smithsonian Magazine, many people don’t remember traumatic events, like auto accidents, because their brains are concentrating on survival rather than making memories. Other causes, such as a traumatic brain injury suffered in the auto accident or a pre-existing medical condition such as dementia, could also interfere with your ability to remember what happened.
You Can Still Recover Damages After an Accident You Don’t Remember
Your fair recovery doesn’t depend on your memory of the accident. Instead, you can use other evidence to prove who was liable for your accident injuries and to get the recovery you deserve. Important accident evidence may include:
- Police reports
- Photos or videos taken by you or other people at the accident scene
- Eyewitness testimony
- Surveillance video if there were security cameras nearby
- Vehicle damage
- Accident reconstructionist testimony
Together this evidence can prove who caused your accident and how it happened. This liability evidence, along with your medical records and other evidence of injury and damages, can prove your Kansas City car accident claim and allow you to recover damages.
