Telematics resolves Liability Issue


James Arney’s recent instructions from Horwich Farrelly illustrate the usefulness of telematics in RTAs, where there is contradictory witness evidence as to the positioning, movement and speed of vehicles involved.

James acted on behalf of the first defendant who following a collision with the second defendant at a junction, lost control of her vehicle and collided with the claimant. The second defendant, though admitting to some negligence, claimed that they had been stationary prior to the collision with the first defendant. This issue was crucial to the first defendant’s liability position.

Telematics evidence strongly indicated that the second defendant’s vehicle had in fact been travelling forward pre-impact. Against this evidence, the second defendant conceded liability and James’ client was absolved from allegations of negligence in the case.
