COLLECT EVIDENCE

Although you may be shocked after an accident or fall, it is critical that you collect as much evidence as possible at the accident scene. Once you leave the accident scene, the existing evidence can be altered and may no longer serve in your favor. It is also worthy to write down as many details as possible about the photographs you have collected to avoid confusion.

Evidence that may be collected include:

  • Photographs
  • Police Report
  • Videos
  • Camera footage
  • Eyewitness statements

Proving Pain and Suffering

Although proving the extent of your physical pain can easily be done, it is often much more difficult to prove the extent of your emotional suffering. It is recommended that you keep note of any changes in your daily activities that may have been caused by the accident. This will help both your personal injury attorney and the insurance companies better understand how the injuries sustained have caused disruption in your life.

​Medical records are the best type of evidence to demonstrate the extent of your physical pain. The number of times you have seen a doctor, medications that have been prescribed to you and any procedures you may have had to undergo will confirm the physical pain you have had to endure after the accident or fall.
