When To Bring A Claim

After you have been injured, you should not hesitate to get in touch with a lawyer. The sooner you involve legal counsel, the more evidence can be preserved and collected. In essence, if not for the negligence of the other party, you would not have been injured. This is the basis for all personal injury claims.

We can take action on your behalf as soon as we have enough information to file a claim. This may require us to do some extensive investigation, but a claim can be put together. We can take it to the other party’s insurance company in order to attempt to settle the matter. However, if a settlement offer is unsatisfactory, we can file a formal lawsuit and take the case to trial, or handle it through an avenue of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration.

What Is Needed

In order to show that you are entitled to compensation, you must have proof of your damages or losses. Without that, it will be difficult to show the judge, jury, mediator or arbitrator that you have suffered both physically and financially. Things that are helpful are:

  • Photos of the injuries
  • Photos of the car, vehicle or any other property damage
  • Medical records
  • Mechanics’ reports and/or estimates on the vehicle
  • Witness statements
  • Police reports
