Every Piece Of Paperwork You Need For Your Car Accident Injury Case
To maximize your injury case, and whether you have already hired an attorney or you may be thinking about doing so, there is certain paperwork that we will help us get a jump start on your case. In a typical auto accident case, we’ll need the following things:
Traffic Crash Report or Drivers Exchange of Information: This has a lot of information on it including names, addresses, dates of birth, ownership of the cars involved, auto insurance information, as well as if the at-fault driver was issued a traffic ticket for causing the accident.
Photos or video of the scene and of damage to the vehicles involved: It can be as easy as photos and videos taken on your phone. You don’t need to even print the images, just e-mail or text them to us. Don’t rely on photos taken by the auto repair shop; those are the property of the auto repair shop. Take your own photos.
If you were operating a motorcycle or bicycle, keep your helmet or any other property that may have been damaged in the accident: We’ll want to keep your helmets, damaged clothing and even your damaged bike so that our experts can examine to provide testimony as to the severity of the impact.
Your auto insurance policy: Most of our clients are not aware of all the auto insurance coverage available to them or what all the abbreviations mean. Even if you were a pedestrian hit by a car, your own auto insurance might be important.
Your automobile repair estimate: Generally, the more repairs required, the more likely our experts can provide testimony of the severity of the collision.
Your hospital or medical treatment records and medical billing, along with the names of your treating physicians. You don’t need to run around and collect the medical records; we’ll do that for you. Which allows you time to heal.
Lost wage documentations: Such as a copy of a recent pay check stub or whatever reflects your salary so that we can make a claim to recover your past and future lost wages.
It can seem unfair that when you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence that you are the one who has to carry the burden of proving your case. But we will help you organize, file and understand everything. When you are with Hancock Injury Attorneys, we take the burden from you.
