I just came from a small claims court yesterday. The defendant who is being sued brought a lawyer with her. Her lawyer advised her to have the commissioner hear our case, so we were set back two months.
I read online that a lawyer may not represent a client in a small claims court? So when exactly is he allowed to assist her?
I went to the mall where the accident occurred for an accident report, and they informed me that they may have footage from the accident still.
Am I able to use the footage as evidence in a small claims court? If so, is there anything I need to know about presenting it?
What I am allowed to play the footage on?
Can I have it on my laptop or would I need to make a tape/dvd of it?My mom was backing out of her parking spot to pick up afriend waiting 20ft away to go to the bank. While backing out, she noticed another car had started to back out at the same time. The exit was closer to the Red Audi, than my moms car. So she stopped backing out and waited for the Audi to finish backing out. After the Red Audi finished backing out with her rear bumper nearly parallel to mom's car, the Audi stopped and I guess forgot to shift to drive and stayed in reverse. She backed up into my mom's driver door, while mom was watching from her window and honking. The whole time my mom had been in Park. My mom's friend was on the curb, and saw the whole accident. The driver of the red audi got out of her car, started yelling and making a scene saying she was late picking up her child. My mom told her that if she left, she would report her as a hit and run. And then a bystander who did NOT witness the accident came to the two cars and told the owner of the Red Audi that she would be a witness for her.
