Documentation is critical in a personal injury claim. The right documentation can help you obtain the maximum compensation possible for your claim. It is crucial to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to determine the kind of documentation you need for your claim.
Here is an overview of some of the documentation you need for your personal injury claim:
If the police came to the accident scene, they most probably made a report. Keep a copy of the report. Your personal injury lawyer can use this information in proving the authenticity of the accident and it can also help to determine the liability of the person or party responsible for the accident.
Photos of the Accident Scene
Photos of your injuries, vehicles and equipment at the scene, and photos of the road or location where the accident occurred are valuable to your case. These photos can shed light on things that you may not have noticed at the time you were injured.
Getting witness statements is vital. They serve as a written record of important details relating to the accident. These details can be used by your attorneys or other experts to determine how the accident occurred.
If there is an insurance company involved, keep any correspondence that you receive from the company. Keep the documentation relating to who your insurance provider is and the policy information.
Copies of any bills that arise because of your injuries are critical. Keep copies of your medical bills and the insurance company’s “Explanation of Benefits” paperwork. In addition to medical bills, keep records of any extra costs that arise because of your injuries.
Your Work Information
Keep documentation of your work history and payment information. You can claim compensation for lost wages and lost earning capacity by providing documentation of your lost pay.
