Important Pieces of Evidence You Need For Your Personal Injury Claim

The right evidence and documentation can mean the difference between getting a recovery for your personal injury claim and no recovery at all. The evidence you need will depend on the facts and circumstances of your particular claim, so it’s critical to work with a skilled Las Vegas personal injury attorney to determine your exact needs. Here are some important pieces you need for your claim:

1. Police Reports

If law enforcement come to the scene of the accident, they most likely made a report. Get a copy of the report or once you retain our firm, we can obtain it for you.

Police who respond to the accident are typically an important part of building your case against negligent parties. They collect evidence at the scene and gather witness information useful when filing suit. A qualified personal injury lawyer can use this information to get new leads and collect even more evidence. They may also need to assist in any criminal defense of secondary charges related to the accident which a personal injury attorney may have to assist with.

Here’s why you must hire a personal injury lawyer following an accident!

2. Physical Evidence

This evidence can show you that you sustained injuries as well as the severity of those injuries. Examples of physical evidence include damaged property and bloody clothing. This evidence can be very effective for your personal injury attorney at proving your claim.
However, some physical evidence can be lost if it’s not collected right after the accident. The Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at The Bourassa Law Group can draft a legal letter preventing the liable party from destroying evidence.

3. Photos

Photographs of anything related to the accident are critical for your case. Photos of your injuries, vehicles involved in the accident, equipment at the scene, roads, or another location where your injuries took place are all important. It’s highly recommended that you take plenty of photos from various angles and distances.

Photos can shed light on things that you might not have noticed about your injuries in the immediate aftermath of the accident. It’s advisable that you continue to take photos of your injuries periodically as you recover.

4. Witness Statements and Notes

If you are physically able to, ask any eyewitnesses for their name and contact information so your attorney can gather statements from them. Keep notes that chronicle your recovery process and details about your injuries.

5. Medical Records

Obtain medical records from the doctors and other healthcare providers who provide medical treatment to you, including but not limited to:

  • Hospital
  • Emergency room
  • Primary care providers
  • Physical therapists/occupational therapists
  • Psychologists/psychiatrists
  • Specialists
  • Diagnostic centers
  • Surgical centers

Be sure to hold on to all medical bills, hospital statements, receipts, prescriptions, and treatment documentation you may receive.

6. Insurance Information

If an insurance company is involved in your case, it’s critical that you retain any correspondence that you receive from the insurer. Taking notes during conversations with an insurance adjuster can help safeguard you from bad faith actions taken by the insurer. When dealing with your own insurance company, you’ll need documentation of your insurance provider and your policy information. Personal injuries will be evaluated by both parties and need to be well documented for your personal injury attorney to be able to help get financial compensation for.

7. Document Lost Wages

If the injury you suffer from your accident prevents you from performing your job duties, you may lose income. Because you are entitled to recovery of lost wages, it’s important that you collect evidence that demonstrates how much you’ve lost since suffering your injury. Be sure to provide any documentation to your employer that makes note of your inability to work. Also, make sure to request documentation that says how much you are losing in wages.

Compensation For Your Injury

Because no two personal injury claims are alike, it’s difficult to say what your exact amount of compensation will be. The amount of compensation you are able to recover will depend on the physical, mental, and financial damages you have sustained.

Rest assured that the Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at The Bourassa Law Group will fight tirelessly to help secure the following types of compensation for you:

  • Medical Expenses – Our attorneys will fight for compensation to cover past and future medical bills associated with your injury.
  • Loss of Income and Earning Capacity – Recovery for any lost or future wages if you are unable to work because of your injuries.
  • Property Damage – If your property was damaged, such as in a vehicle accident, we will help recover compensation to repair or replace, a personal injury attorney is skilled at quantifying these damages to insurance adjusters.
  • Pain and Suffering – Damages intended to help cover quality of life changes.
  • Loss of Consortium –Helps cover injuries that affect a victim’s ability to interact with their family.
  • Property damage, including compensation to repair damaged property or the cash value of destroyed property
  • Physical Impairment – Paid to accident victims who suffer quality of life issues.
  • Disfigurement – If your injury caused a major change to your physical appearance and affects your life, disfigurement damages may be obtained.
  • Emotional Distress – Emotional trauma can be just as serious as physical damages. Compensation can be recovered for these damages.

The Bourassa Law Group personal injury attorneys are ready to help you get the full and fair compensation you are owed so you can focus on what’s most important: your recovery. Contact now at (702)851-2180 for a free and confidential consultation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, it is important to consider the lawyer’s experience, reputation, and track record. You should also make sure that the lawyer is knowledgeable about the area of law relevant to your case. Additionally, you should feel comfortable communicating with the lawyer and confident that they will be able to handle your case effectively. At The Bourassa Law Group, you will have attorneys with over 30 years of experience working for the defense and insurance companies taking those skills and fighting for you.

The amount of money a personal injury lawyer gets from a settlement depends on the type of fee arrangement that has been agreed upon between the lawyer and the client. Generally, personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if they win or settle the case. The percentage typically ranges from 33% to 40%, but we have seen some attorneys negotiate contingency agreements as high as 60%.

Personal injury compensation is calculated based on a variety of factors, including the severity of the injury, the extent of any medical expenses and lost income, the impact on quality of life, and other damages such as pain and suffering. The amount of compensation awarded in a personal injury case will depend on the facts and circumstances of each individual case.

It is impossible to determine the exact value of a personal injury case without knowing the specifics of the case. Factors such as the severity of the injury, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering all play a role in determining the value of a personal injury case. An experienced personal injury attorney can help evaluate your case and determine its potential value.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is a type of car insurance coverage that helps to pay for medical expenses and lost wages incurred due to an accident, regardless of who is at fault. PIP can also provide coverage for funeral costs, rehabilitation costs, and other related expenses. This type of coverage varies by state.
