Questions Your Lawyer Should Ask - Other Driver's Health

So you were injured in a car accident.

And ICBC says you were at fault.

Did the other driver have health issues which caused or contributed to your accident?

The questions your lawyer asks the other driver at what's called an examination for discovery could make a big difference.

Here are a few of the questions I would ask:

1. Do you wear eye glasses?;

2. Do you wear contact lenses?;

3. Have you undergone any form of corrective surgery on your eyes?;

4.  Do you have any difficulties with your hearing?;

5. Where you suffering from any types of health problems at the time of this accident? Colds, coughs, flu, etc.;

6. Did you consume any drugs ( prescription or otherwise) in the 24 hours prior to the accident?

7.  Where you on any type of medication at the time of the accident?

8.  Had you consumed any alcohol in the 24 hours prior to the accident?

9.  How many hours sleep had you gotten the night before the accident?

And that's just a sampling.

The bottom line is that health issues on the part of the other driver might have contributed to your accident.

But likely the only way you'll find out is if your lawyer asks the right questions.
