Evidence that Supports a Personal Injury ClaimPutnam Law Office
If you were injured in an unintentional injury event like an Oklahoma car accident, you may be wondering two things. First, can you file a claim for compensation? And second, what evidence and information do you need to file a successful claim that helps you get all of the financial compensation you need?
Both of these are good questions. To answer the first, if you are unsure about your legal rights and if your injury accident experience rises to the level of filing a claim, then you should see a personal injury attorney. Usually, personal injury attorneys offer free initial consultations, so you will not have to pay out of pocket to have your injury accident evaluated.
The Oklahoma personal injury attorneys at the Putnam Law Office can help you determine if you have a claim. You are welcome to call the Putnam Law Office today and schedule a consultation to speak with an experienced attorney.
To answer the second question, there are several different types of evidence that can be gathered and used to help a personal injury claim be successful.
What Evidence You Should Include In Your Personal Injury Claim
It is imperative that your personal injury claim has a plethora of evidence supporting it. Creating the most clear picture of what happened is beneficial. As a result, the types of evidence that you may use could include the following:
- Pictures of the accident scene
- Video footage of the accident
- Records of medical care needed after the injury accident
- Medical and doctor notes regarding diagnosis and future medical treatment that may be required
- Property damage repair bills
- Witness testimony
- Police reports
- Testimony from friends and family regarding how the injury accident affected your life
- Your own personal journal entries describing the pain your accident caused and the emotional toll it had on you
- Expert testimony
When you work with an attorney, you will have an advocate on your side helping you throughout the claims process. This includes gathering critical evidence to build your claim. The evidence compiled will be used to determine what your claim is worth by showing the extent of both the economic and non-economic damages you sustained.
While your attorney is putting your claim together and fighting on your behalf to help you get the most from it, you can put your efforts and focus toward healing from your injuries. Meanwhile, your attorney will make the case that the party who caused your accident was strictly liable for your damages and the harm you sustained so that you can secure maximum recovery for your losses.
