What Do I Need for My Personal Injury Claim?

 Actions such as determining fault and calculating damages can quickly make personal injury matters extremely complex. In order to determine fault, and by extension collect damages, Plaintiffs and their attorneys must present both physical and non-physical evidence to support their claims.

Physical Evidence is evidence that can be physically seen and understood by a jury. This type of evidence can be extremely impactful and allows them to see the damages for themselves. Types of physical evidence can include photographs of disfigurement or damages to a person as a result of physical injury, wrecked vehicles, medical operations, or others.

Non-physical Evidence is additionally crucial to present in during a personal injury claim. Oftentimes, physical evidence can be limited in availability, so attorneys use non-physical evidence to present their client’s claim. Some of these can include:

  • Police Reports: Police Reports are considered unbiased and official pieces of non-physical evidence that often times can present a clear recollection of events from a third party and sometimes even a determination of fault.
  • Medical Records or Bills: Seeking medical treatment can be extremely expensive, and records and bills for treatment can be used to demonstrate an evaluation of damages. Medical records can also provide clinical explanations to demonstrate damages done to your body and how these damages may affect you long-term.
  • Witness Testimony: Witnesses to the incident can provide testimony on the witness stand to describe the incident to their recollection, and provide supporting details.
  • Expert Witness Testimony: Expert Witnesses are studied individuals capable of providing professional or otherwise expert opinions to a particular incident. For example, a traffic crash investigator may be able to provide expert testimony as to the causation and outcomes of a motor vehicle accident.
  • Depositions: Depositions are testimony statements made by witnesses under oath outside of the Courtroom. During a personal injury claim, parties are often subjected to depositions in which they are held under oath and must answer questions provided by both parties attorneys.
