Can I still win my Florida car accident case if my memory of the accident now conflicts with things I might have said at the time of the accident?

In Florida you can still win your case if your memory now conflicts with what you said at the time of the accident. Specifically when it pertains to police reports. When an accident occurs and the police show up at the scene they take information from both drivers. They take background information and they also take information regarding what the drivers know about what happened and they take statements. Those statements are actually considered privileged. They fall under the accident report privilege.

As a result, those statements are not permissible to be shown or displayed or actually read in court. Anything that a party to an accident tells the police will never be seen in court. As a result, if your memory changes or new evidence comes to light and the facts somewhat change that police report cannot be used against you.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
