When injured and a third party is at fault, you will want to get a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney specializes in collecting claims for injuries and getting you fair compensation. A personal injury attorney will investigate the evidence surrounding the case and write a demand letter. During the investigation, here are five things a personal injury attorney will do for you:
- Look at medical bills and previous medical history. To determine if you have a lawsuit with merit, the attorney will investigate your medical bills and be sure that the bills are related to the claim you are stating and not to previous medical issues.
- Look at police reports. Police reports are important evidence in a personal injury case. It serves as a determination of the party at fault for the injury and the circumstances surrounding the injury.
- Take or look at witness statements. If there were any witnesses to the incident, the attorney will interview the witnesses to determine if they would be reliable in the event of filing a lawsuit.
- Look at surveillance footage. If cameras happened to catch the incident on tape, this could be vital evidence for a personal injury attorney to inspect. The camera doesn’t lie.
- Look at photographs. Photographs are useful evidence to present in a personal injury case. If you have pictures of injuries or vehicles involved in a car accident, your attorney will be sure to present them as evidence in your case.
