Saving Evidence in a Personal Injury Case

When you have been harmed due to someone else's actions, the first step you are likely to take is getting the important medical attention you need. These next few days will prove to be the most important when it comes to preserving the evidence you need to hold them responsible and develop an important case to get you the compensation you deserve during this time. The Bakersfield personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Craig A. Edmonston can help you recover evidence and prepare a case against those that have caused your injury.

As with all personal injury accidents, f you have been involved in a car accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, or pedestrian accident your safety should be your first priority.

Once you have received medical attention, it will be in your best interests to:

  1. Return to the scene of the accident to discover evidence and take photos of the scene. You may discover details and conditions that contributed to the accident that you were unaware when the event occurred.
  2. Take good photographs at a variety of different angles. This can help develop a comprehensive picture of the accident, your view when things occurred, signs, lighting, and more that can show a judge and jury what you were dealing with during this time.
  3. Protect physical evidence. Known as anything solid that you can see and touch, showing the damage to the car, for example, is more valuable than describing it.
  4. Find witnesses. The testimony of people that witnessed the accident can be extremely beneficial to your case and even bring forth information that you were not even aware of. Finding witnesses as soon as possible can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.
  5. Document injuries. Reporting injuries to a medical professional, photographing injuries, and keeping track of any experienced pain or discomfort can be instrumental in proving the connection between the accident that occurred and the injuries you obtained.
