What is CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE in a Civil Lawsuit in New York?
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Lawyer Gerry Oginski Explains
Let’s say you’re driving down the highway.
You come upon a car that is smashed in.
The driver is bleeding badly.
There’s smoke coming out of the engine bay.
There are skid marks on the road.
You didn’t see what happened.
What conclusions can you draw from those observations?
(1) There had to have been some sort of accident.
Even though you didn’t see it, you know from your knowledge of how cars work that cars often don’t wind up on the side of the road without some type of accident.
(2) The driver suffered massive trauma.
You also know that in the absence of a terrible crash, drivers often don’t experience the terrible injuries that you witnessed.
(3) The smoke coming from the engine suggests this happened only moments ago.
You DIDN’T SEE HOW THIS HAPPENED!
How can you draw those conclusions?
Those facts are evidence.
You’re missing the direct link that SHOWS YOU how this tragedy unfolded.
Since you weren’t there you know know precisely HOW THIS crash happened.
Your mind has already started piecing together how this happened.
Your mind begins to fill in the blanks where we don’t have direct evidence.
