If law enforcement come to the scene of the accident, they most likely made a report. Get a copy of the report.
Police who respond to the accident are typically an important part of building your case. They collect evidence at the scene and gather witness information. A qualified personal injury lawyer can use this information to get new leads and collect even more evidence.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 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.
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.
