Organizing a personal injury claim can be a stressful experience—you’re forced to pursue legal action all while trying to recover from an accident that wasn’t your fault. To strengthen and legitimize your personal injury claim, you and your legal team will need proper documentation. But what documents do you need for a personal injury claim? Of course, proper documentation will vary upon each case’s circumstances. Apogee Capital Partners, LLC, reviews common documents that are necessary for filing a claim.
Reports From Law Enforcement
If the accident drew in officials from the fire or police department, it’s likely they created a report for the incident. Acquiring a copy of this document is crucial to your claim, as law enforcement reports are often considered some of the most valuable documents in court.
Not only do law enforcement reports contain details and evidence from the accident, but they also contain witness information. Your legal team can use this information in the future when they need further evidence for your claim.
Photos From the Accident and of Injuries
Photos of any equipment, vehicles, or injuries from the accident are a few documents you need for a personal injury claim. Without photos, you and your legal team will have a much more difficult time conveying just how serious the incident was.
Any Previous Records/Reports of Accidents
If your accident occurred at a business or corporate facility, check whether they have previous incident reports on their record. Should a company have a history of accidents on-site, your argument for their liability in the situation becomes much stronger.
Copies of Bills
Any medical bills acquired as a result of the accident should be kept and copied to help build your case and determine an adequate settlement amount. You should also keep track of and note all legal and living expenses. Should you be out of work due to your injuries, offer documentation of your work history and pay to make a better case for compensation.
The financial ramifications of settling a claim can wreak havoc on your bank account.
