Evidence plays a crucial role in creating a strong personal injury case. The evidence you produce will not only help to prove fault but also show the extent of your financial loss and help solidify your claim for damages. If you are looking forward to building a strong personal injury case, having the following types of evidence can benefit your case:
Police report: A police report is factual, official and unbiased. This report can be useful while filing a personal injury claim as it will provide an objective opinion about how the accident occurred.
Medical records: Medical records contain all necessary and important details about your injuries, diagnosis and treatments. Make sure that you keep receipts of hospital fees, prescription costs and the cost of traveling to and from appointments. These records will be essential for proving the value of your damages and injuries.
Witness testimony: If someone has witnessed your accident, his or her testimony may help validate your claim. It is important that you obtain the witness’ contact information and statement as soon as possible after the incident.
Photographs of the accident scene: Photographs can tell the story of how your accident unfolded. They can help your attorney prove negligence and liability. Capture the accident scene from different angles, showing property damage, injuries, skid marks, traffic signs, positions of vehicles and the road conditions.
Using the right evidence may help you win your personal injury case and get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages.
