How To Determine If You Have a Good Car Accident Case

Injury Accident Attorneys

Nearly every civil case brings one common thing i.e., damages. Damage refers to the physical injury, financial loss, or damage to the property which is entitled to compensation from the other party. Seeking compensation for the injuries sustained in a car accident is a common practice. However, there are several factors that affect the time span to resolve the case as well as the compensation amount. These factors can include damages to the vehicle, lost wages, or medical expenses.

Despite these factors, the surety of the compensation amount depends upon the fact of how well you prove your case. Consider the following factors that significantly increase the chances of compensation:

Copy of Police Report

You must obtain a copy of the police report that is considered significant proof of the accident. The police report contains details about the accident which also includes the name of the investigating officer. A very common practice among insurance companies is that they contact the investigating officer to confirm whether your statements regarding injuries.

Immediate Medical Attention

Right after the accident, did you receive medical attention, visit your physician or emergency room? In many cases, failing to seek immediate medical attention bars the victim’s claims for compensation. So, whether you are injured or have doubts or injuries, immediately seek medical attention to make your claim strong.

Pre-Existing Injuries

If you have any preexisting injuries or medical conditions, ask your doctor to take fresh ex-rays or ultrasounds of the injured body parts. This way, the comparison between both the reports- pre-accident and post-accident, can explain the intensity of the damage the accident had caused. In case the accident did not cause any harm and your injuries are preexisting the accident, you may not be able to make a claim.

The DUI Charges

Consider if the offender is charged with a DUI. Several states hold the criminal driver liable for the damages regardless of who’s actual fault it was.

Speaking to Others at the Spot

If you make any statement at the scene or tell anyone that it was my fault, or anything similar to this, will be used against you. Similarly, if the other party says something similar to others, you may want to make a note of this statement and see whether others have heard the driver saying this.

Witnesses at the Scene

If there were witnesses at the scene, you can seek their assistance in proving your case. Witnesses at the scene prove to be very helpful in making your claim a successful one.

Pictures or Videos of the Scene

Picture or video evidence is considered highly important in proving any case. If you were not able to speak to the witnesses, take pictures of the scene. In certain cases, picture evidence becomes sufficient in awarding compensation to the victim.

Keeping the Record of On-Going Damages

Have you made sure that you have been keeping a record of the damages following the car accident such as the number of days and wages lost because of the accident? Moreover, making a record of interference with daily activities, visits to the doctor, etc. also helps in substantiating your claims for the damages.
