An accident report provides an objective perspective of the accident and is normally made by a law enforcement officer - in the case of a car accident - or a person with authority should your personal injury accident take place at work or in another location. Generally, the report will contain information such as who was involved, where the incident took place, the cause of the accident, injuries suffered, who is responsible and other relevant details.2. Physical Evidence
Physical evidence can help prove that you suffered a personal injury as well as the severity of the injury. Bloody clothing, damaged property, and other such forms of physical evidence are great at proving your claim.
It’s worth noting that some physical evidence can be lost if not gathered immediately after the accident. Our Colorado attorneys can draft a legal letter inhibiting the liable party from destroying evidence.3. Photographs and Video
Pictures and video are especially useful in providing visual evidence of the personal injury you suffered. If possible, try to take pictures of:
- Your injuries
- Your progress throughout treatment
- Property damages
- The scene of the accident
Take the photos or video as soon as possible and from as many angles as possible as well.
