Your case may be solid, but there is still a lot of preparation needed for settlement negotiations or trial. In order for an injury claim to move forward, the victim must have evidence. After an accident, or incident, it’s very important to write down, record, and/or photograph everything. Make note of what happened, when, and where. Record any detail you can remember, even if it seems insignificant at the time.
Paperwork is part of preparation- and you will have lots of it! So start a file. Be sure to keep every document about your case, your injuries, and any damaged property. This would include correspondence from an insurance company, police report, medical bills and any other bills stemming from damages related to the accident or event.
If someone saw the accident that caused injury, their testimony can be crucial to your case. Get the names and numbers of anyone who saw the accident. In the case of a traffic accident, a police report should contain the contact information of witnesses.
Of course having appropriate medical care and a legal team after an accident or event is also important. Personal Injury Attorney, Scott Mullins will help determine the value of your case and ensure the best possible outcome for your personal injury claim.
