Evidence of Damages in Kansas City Car Accidents

Tuesday, Dec. 15th 2015

When you or a someone you know has been in a car accident is important to get evidence of the damages that result from the accident. In most car accident cases, the most significant portion of recovery is related to compensation for damage to personal or physical property. Gather all records related to car repairs and car rentals. This includes documentation of any recent repairs or improvements made to your car shortly before the accident. For instance, if your car was totaled in the accident, you can increase the value given to your vehicle if you have proof that you recently replaced all four tires or components of the engine. Accordingly, if applicable, you should gather this type of information and accompanying receipts.

Probably the most important component of evidence gathering in car accident cases relates to documenting physical injuries. After a car accident it is extremely important to obtain timely medical treatment for any injuries and to inform all treating health care providers that you were involved in a car accident.

Keep a journal with information relating to healthcare appointments, including who you saw, the treatment obtained, and whether you were required to pay any money at that particular visit. Once you have completed all treatment, and a doctor has released you as maximally improved, ask for a complete copy of all of your medical records. You should specifically request copies of treatment record and diagnostic images such as x-rays or MRIs. In addition, gather all medical bills from each and every healthcare provider. You will also want to gather any information related to lost wages.

An experienced personal injury attorney can ease some of the burden by engaging in fact-finding, gathering the necessary documentation, and crafting concise and thorough demands for settlement of your claim. Northland Injury Law helps victims injured in car accidents recover the compensation they need. If you have been personally injured, call 816-400-4878 for a Missouri automobile accident lawyer today.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.
