Police Accidentally Misreport Accident

download (36)Today, we’re talking about an accident and the media.  It was nearly 7 am one morning near Providence High School in Charlotte.  Dawn was just breaking, and drivers were wiping the sleep from their eyes as kids were getting ready to start their day.

There was a three car wreck on Pineville-Matthews Road that morning, and the police initially thought that it was a student that was rushed to the hospital. That’s what they told the media anyway. It turns out that the authorities later retracted their statement to say that it was a driver of one of the vehicles who had gotten out of the car and was then hit.

The media has power, power which is not to be taken lightly.  Their reports might be the only ones that you receive about an accident, and, sadly, those reports might be wrong.  This is one of the reasons that it helps to have a well-trained personal injury attorney on your side.

Personal injury attorneys can help influence the judgment that is received, the jury (if it comes to that), and truly get to the core of a situation.  They have access to all the facts and know what the media isn’t reporting.

Police closed down several lanes while they investigated the crash, hopefully coming up with some answers.  If you need someone on your side regarding your crash, give us a call.
