Recording Evidence For Your Personal Injury Claim

If you have suffered an injury which wasn’t your fault, you could well be entitled to make a personal injury claim. If you are looking to make a claim, there are often many issues which you need to consider. These are all dependant on the type of injury you have suffered and the cause of the accident. For example if you were injured in a road accident, your claim could be affected if the person who was at fault doesn’t have adequate insurance. Here are some common questions which people ask when they are claiming for a personal injury.
If you are in a car accident and would like to pursue compensation because of it, you will need evidence of your injuries. If you can take photos of your injuries yourself, or get somebody to do it as soon as possible, do so! You will need to be able to present concrete evidence of your injuries and the suffering that you have been through. If you are suffering with prolonged injuries, you should continue to take photos. Also when the accident takes place, you should report it to the DMV as you are required to do so by law.
Photographic evidence is always useful when you are claiming compensation due to a personal injury. However it is also strongly recommended that you record the dates and times of any pain and or discomfort that you are also suffering from. This will play a vital role in gaining you the money that you feel you are entitled to. If you are not suffering from any pain immediately after the accident, you will still need to go to the hospital. If your not in any pain, it’s more than likely because your body has produced adrenaline to act as a natural pain killer – you may be more hurt than you realised!
In order to make your personal injury compensation claim, you will usually need to have recovered, or completed your medical treatment. Medical treatment can include physiotherapy sessions and even gym memberships if you have been advised to do so to help your body recover from the trauma that it has suffered. Once you have the costs that you have incurred, the settlement figure is then tallied up by your legal advisor. Once your personal injury claim has been made, you will then need to wait a few months in most cases before receiving a settlement.
