A successful personal injury recovery claim often depends on the details. You should have all of the facts and paperwork to back up your claim if you’ve been injured in a car accident, hurt on the job, bitten by a dog, or otherwise hurt through actions that weren’t your fault. A team of talented personal injury attorneys like those at Rosen Moss Snyder LLP can help you get the settlement you deserve.
However, without the right documents, it’s harder to prove your case. Therefore, we’ve gathered more information about the documents you and our legal team will need for a personal injury claim.
Oftentimes, especially after a car accident, there will be reports filed by the police, fire department, and/or emergency services. A law enforcement report is the foundation of a great personal injury case, and you can easily obtain one from the police department where the incident occurred.
If you’ve been injured at work, or in a public place, like a store, restaurant, or hotel, then there’s probably an incident report filed by the company. You can also ask for a copy of this report, as it may contain details pertinent to your accident.
Photos of the Accident
Having photographs in front of a judge or jury can be a powerful way to demonstrate how the accident happened and the immediate effects. These can be police photos, pictures that you took yourself, or those from other witnesses. Be sure to have the date and location labeled for any pictures that you have.
Doctor’s Treatment Logs
If you were injured in an accident, you likely received medical treatment. Having your medical records, especially ones that state which injuries were caused by the accident and how, can go a long way towards helping advocate for your interests. When you have the records from immediate treatment plus aftercare, such as a chiropractor or physical therapy, then your lawyer can argue for coverage of these medical bills, plus time lost at work or any effects from a reduced physical capability.
