Evidence is the Cornerstone of Your Florida Personal Injury Claim
A legal claim involves hours of filing paperwork and lengthy negotiations, but what a Florida personal injury claim will often boil down to is the strength of the evidence presented. While your Miami accident attorney can tell you exactly what types of evidence they need in order to build your case, it is helpful to have already assembled at least some of the evidence your Miami accident attorney may require.
When it comes to building a strong Florida personal injury claim, it is always better to err on the side of caution. If you are not certain whether an item or article may qualify as evidence, save it and consult with your Miami accident attorney for further instruction.
The list below highlights some common injury scenarios and the evidence typically preserved in those cases:
- Motor vehicle accidents – police reports, photographs of your damage and injury(ies), contact information of the motorists and witnesses, medical bills and receipts, repair receipts, and torn or bloodied clothing.
- Product liability claims – actual product, product instructions, warning labels, warranties, receipts, photographs of your injury(ies), and the product’s original packaging.
- Medical malpractice cases – medical records, doctor’s reports, photographs of injuries, and medical bills.
The scene of an accident is very important while it’s untouched. It is recommended that you gather all the physical evidence that can potentially illustrate the accident to someone who wasn’t on the scene, such as your Miami accident attorney, the insurance adjusters, and the judge or jury.
