There are many different kinds of personal injury cases and in each one of them, there is almost always the need for evidence to prove the version of events being given. If someone has everything they need, they will be able to present a very concise and coherent case. It is, however, essential to be familiar with the ideal types of evidence required for each sort of personal injury case so that you are able to be well prepared. This is where a lot of victims flounder. Personal injury cases take place by the tens of thousands and, just like other types of cases, they have certain types of evidence that are more relevant than others.
Always involve the police in your case whenever possible. This way there will be an official statement that corroborates your version of events. You will need to have a formal copy of your Arizona police report because it is a very influential piece of evidence that gives the facts surrounding the incident, who was there when it occurred, and other important aspects surrounding the event.
Take as many videos and pictures as you are able to. A lot of the time, this evidence is able to be contrasted to surveillance cameras and other pictures that were taken at or near the time of the event. Just your word, no matter who you are, won’t hold much water in a personal injury claim, but pictures and videos will.
It doesn’t matter if it’s hospital records, a note from a doctor, pictures of your injury, or any other form of documentation of your damages, each of these kinds of evidence is relevant to a personal injury claim and will lend credence to your version of events and to the injury you sustained.
If you need to, go back to the scene of the event as soon as you can and collect any evidence you think you might need.
If you still have questions regarding what evidence you will want to collect for your personal injury case, it is best to speak with a personal injury attorney.
