Physical evidence is one of the most important in certain accident lawsuits. This can depend on the nature of the lawsuit as to what exactly would be required. But for example, if you were on a ladder on a construction site and it broke, having the ladder can be extremely useful. Or if a railing or step was broken, having a piece of the broken object can help to demonstrate better how the accident unfolded.
Photo and Video evidence
Photo and video evidence is essential to nearly every type of accident. The sooner the evidence can be acquired the better, even before leaving the scene of the accident. If you were injured beyond the ability to gather it someone you trust should take photos as quickly as they can. It is so important to show that the accident was not your fault or due to careless behavior. Also when you describe the scene of the accident in court or to the insurance companies, having proof only helps. Many times there are security cameras that can be accessed to get extra video footage.

Accident lawyers with experience will have a network of specialist medical professionals and doctors whose expertise is to be able to identify the cause of the injury and the extent of it. You can bet the insurance companies against you in the case will try and say it was an underlying condition, or it wasn’t serious, or there were no long term effects, or it won’t affect your work. But having the medical reports, and expert medical opinions will be necessary.
Bills & receipts
