It’s not easy to jump into legal matters if you don’t have the know-how. Hopefully, this article should fill you in with the information you need when it comes to suing someone for a personal injury.
- Do You Have Grounds for a Legal Claim?
In order to make a claim, you will need to prove that the person you are suing has been negligent and that their negligence has caused you to suffer from an injury. If you’re not sure how to get started on your case, Law Offices of Fogam & Associates LLC will be more than happy to guide you.
- Do You Have Enough Evidence to Prove Your Claim?
Assuming that your claim rests on establishing the fact that the other party has been negligent, the possible pieces of evidence you would need in order to prove your case include:
- A police report which documents the circumstances involved.
- An incident report prepared by the management in charge of the place where the accident occurred (such as a store, restaurant, office, etc.).
- A series of photographs from the scene of the accident.
- A record of medical treatment which you have received pertaining to your injury.
- A documentation of the time which you have missed from work, along with records that stipulate your income (for the purpose of making a lost wages claim).
- A testimony from a medical professional regarding the cause of your injury.
- Do You Have a Lawyer Who Understands the Situation?
Gathering enough evidence to make claim can be tricky, especially if you’re not sure what type of evidence is needed (or if what you have on hand is already enough). For this case, it would be in your best interest to ask a lawyer for advice.
