The Importance of Preserving Evidence in Your Personal injury Case
Your personal injury claim may be won or lost depending on the preservation of important evidence involved in your case. This is why it is critical that you preserve as much evidence as possible. And with the invention of digital cameras and cell phone cameras, this task has never been easier. The more evidence you have, the easier it will be for your Irvine personal injury lawyer to get you the maximum compensation that you are entitled to.
Personal injury encompasses a wide variety of civil cases, including those involving car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall and more. In each of these cases, as a victim, you may be entitled to economic damages, such as medical bills, lost wages and repairs. In addition, you may be entitled to compensation for non-economic damages, also known as “pain and suffering.”
But the success of any personal injury case hinges upon the amount of evidence available to prove fault and determine liability. In other words, if your Irvine personal injury lawyer does not have sufficient evidence to prove the defendant was negligent, it will be nearly impossible for you to collect damages.
Although it is best to preserve evidence while at the scene of the accident, you should return to the scene as soon as possible to locate any evidence that you were not able to gather and photograph any conditions you believe may have caused or contributed to your accident.
