John Doe Accident Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
The name “John Doe” is routinely used in all manner of legal documents to represent an unknown person who was involved in an incident but is unable to be identified. The person really exists, but no one can discover their identity. A John Doe accident is caused by or involves an unknown person who usually flees the scene. This happens because they do not know they caused an automobile accident or are wishing to escape responsibility.
For example, a Henry County driver is stopped in traffic with the intention of turning left and is waiting for oncoming vehicles to clear. The motorist immediately behind them pulls into a parking lot on the right to escape the traffic blockage. A third motorist sees this too late and collides with the first car that was waiting to turn left. The second motorist leaving the scene escapes injury and doesn’t even realize he or she caused an accident. In the collision report, this driver is known as John Doe because he or she cannot be identified.
