“The Bourassa Law Group has recently helped me out a great deal. While driving to Pink Box donuts late on a Sunday night, we were struck by a drunk driver who had ran a red light. I recieved an injury to my shoulder as well as some extensive damage to my car. Mark helped me find a doctor to look at my shoulder, get me to a physical therapist to get me healthy again, and get my car fixed. If you are ever in need of a top notch attorney... "Better Call Bourassa" (that's their slogan).”

“I appreciate everything that my legal team did for me in my case where a Lyft driver rear-ended me at a light. They fought hard for me and I closed out my case, happy with the turn out. I would refer anyone I know, to go through Bourassa Law Group because I was treated well and my case was handled very professionally. In the grand scheme of things, this was a pretty minor case and even though I didn't get my lost wages in the end, they fought hard enough to get me a settlement to where I was happy with the amount I was able to walk away with. Great job y'all! Thank you again for everything!”

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. 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.

    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.

    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.

  2. 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.

    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.

  3. 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.
    • LProperty Damage – If your property was damaged, such as in a vehicle accident, we will help recover compensation to repair or replace.
    • 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.

Frequently asked questions

The legal definition of a personal injury is when someone’s failure to use reasonable care in a particular situation results in another person’s physical, emotional, or psychological injury. Personal injury cases often rely on the elements of negligence to prove the responsible party’s actions were the cause of the other party’s injuries.

The length of a personal injury case depends on the type of case and various factors, such as the severity of the injury sustained and the duration of necessary treatment. A car accident case might take six months to resolve, while a wrongful death lawsuit could take two years. It all depends on the circumstances surrounding the case.

No. Whether you got hurt in a car accident or on someone else’s property, you should never speak with their liability insurance company about the claim. They try to save money whenever possible and could attempt to trick you into accepting a low settlement amount or intimidate you into dropping the case. Your Denver personal injury lawyer will handle all communication on your behalf.

It depends. A vast majority of personal injury cases settle out of court. When we file a claim with the insurance company, we’ll submit evidence that proves you deserve compensation for your injuries. Sometimes the insurer is willing to settle. Other times, they deny the claim or provide a settlement much lower than you deserve. Under those circumstances, we will file a lawsuit and take the case to court.

Mediation is a step during a lawsuit where both sides meet to try to reach an agreement. The mediator listens to the arguments on both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s sides and attempts to resolve the issue. If they can reach an agreement, they will settle out of court, and the case will get dismissed. If they can’t resolve the matter, the case will proceed to trial.
