You Have Proper Documentation

One of the first things your car accident lawyer will ask you for is proper documentation. This includes police reports, medical records, photographs of the accident scene and your injuries, as well as statements from eyewitnesses. If you have all of this documentation, it will be much easier for your lawyer to prove the other driver was at fault and that you deserve compensation for your injuries. However, if you required emergency medical care after the accident, this is a good sign that you have a strong case. Your attorney can perform an investigation to identify eyewitnesses and obtain surveillance or dashcam footage. This evidence can be used to prove that the other driver was at fault and that you were seriously injured in the accident.

You Had a Doctor’s Visit Soon After

It’s important to visit a doctor or medical care provider as soon as possible after the accident. This ensures your injuries are properly documented and can prevent the other driver’s insurance company from claiming that your injuries are not as serious as you claim, were caused by something else, or you have failed to mitigate the damages. The severity of your injuries will be one of the main factors that determine how much compensation you are entitled to receive. The more severe your injuries, the greater the amount of damages your personal injury lawyer will be able to recover for you.

You Have Eye-Witnesses Available

If there are people who saw the accident happen, their testimony can be invaluable in proving that the other driver was at fault. Eyewitnesses can help to establish what happened and how it happened, which can be critical in showing that the other driver was negligent. Your car accident lawyer or personal injury lawyer will know how to find and interview eyewitnesses to get the information they need to strengthen your case.
