A witness is competent to testify if the witness: a) Understands the obligation to tell the truth, b) Has the ability to communicate, and c) Has knowledge of the topic of his or her testimony. 2. on next page 3. The 1 st fact in this case that would need to be particularized is what made the client think Mr. Thompson did not even try to slow down before the collision. I would need to get the place and environment details of the accident, the details on the other participants, and also verification details. The next fact that would need FP would be that Mr. Thompson appeared to be speeding at the time of the collision. The sources I would use for this FP are details on the other participant, extent of certainty and uncertainty, and verification details.
