When you are involved in a car accident, the better documentation you have, the better. Keeping an accurate and fact-based record is one of the best things you can do for your case. Todd Durham Law Firm is happy to share with our current and prospective clients how to document your car accident case. With a stronger argument, you are more likely to receive the compensation you deserve.
Stick to the Facts
One mistake people make when documenting what happened in a car accident case is they get too personal. While your emotional suffering does play a role in your damages, fault is based on facts. What happened right before your accident? Did you see that the other driver was on their cellphone? What color was the light when you went through the intersection? Try to write down the facts you experienced in chronological order and try to be as objective as possible.
Keep Important Documents
Don’t throw away your medical bills or any relevant documents your receive from your insurance company. Keep everything in a safe place and then provide everything you have collected to your attorney.
Throughout your case, keep a journal about your pain and the disability you have suffered because of your car accident. If you had a hard time putting groceries away, document it in your journal. Keeping a thorough record of how your injuries impact your life can help give your attorney an idea on how fair particular settlement offers are compared to the long-term problems you may face.
The first step in documenting your car accident case is to meet with an attorney for an initial consultation. Contact Todd Durham Law Firm today at (214) 222-4000 to schedule your appointment with us today. We are happy to assist you in getting the compensation you are entitled to.
