How to Protect Yourself if You are Injured:

Physical evidence and the recollections of witnesses and involved parties are crucial both for establishing the liability of the negligent parties as well as for proving the nature, extent and causation of injuries. In resolving personal injury claims, those in which this critical evidence has been preserved are almost invariably easier to settle and to settle at full value. If the claim proceeds on to litigation, this evidence becomes even more critical as the basis of proof of liability and damages.

Once an experienced attorney takes on a personal injury claim, the attorney will promptly assign staff members and/or professional investigators to collect all the evidence that may be relevant to the claim. The earlier this is done, the better off the case will be. And if the injured person has already begun on his/her own to put this information together, this will get them an even earlier jump on the process.

Since the nature of many pieces of evidence may not be immediately obvious to the non-attorney (and since even an experienced attorney will use checklists to avoid forgetting important items), we’ve provided the following lists to help you protect yourself from having crucial evidence lost or destroyed. Since every case is unique, these lists can’t include every type of evidence possible. Rather, these are intended to describe the most common pieces of evidence needed for successful resolution of a personal injury claim. Collecting as much of this evidence as early on as you can will give both you and any attorney whom you may retain a significant head start on resolving your claim promptly and at full value.
