Documenting an Accident Scene
If you find yourself involved in some sort of accident, you need to properly document the accident scene. This is true whether you are in a car collision, slip and fall incident, or some other type of accident.
A well-documented accident scene can be invaluable in the claims settlement process. In addition, proper documentation of an accident scene is crucial in a personal injury lawsuit as well.
Depending on the extent of your injuries, and the surrounding circumstances, documenting an accident scene may prove to be challenging. Nonetheless, perhaps with the assistance of someone else, there are a number of things that need to be accomplished to properly document an accident scene.
A primary objective in documenting an accident scene is taking photos or making a video. With the ubiquitous availability of mobile devices today, taking photos or making a video is a task that usually can be accomplished with ease.
Photos or a video needs to include the area surrounding the accident itself. The photos or video should be taken from all possible angles. In addition, injuries and property damage should be photographed or videoed if at all possible.
The names and contact information of accident witnesses need to be collected. In addition, concise statements should be taken from the witnesses. This information can also be videoed.
A San Diego personal injury lawyer from The Doan Law Firm can assist in filling gaps that might exist in photos and witness statements from an accident scene. Making certain that you have the documentation necessary, and associated supporting materials regarding the accident, is the foundation upon which an effective claim or lawsuit can be built.
Fair Compensation and Justice in Your San Diego Car Accident Claim
Hiring a skilled, experienced Doan Law Firm San Diego personal injury lawyer is a crucial step when it comes to fighting for fair compensation and justice in your case. The specific facts surrounding your accident, coupled with the nature and extent of the injuries you sustained, govern the compensation sought in your case.
With that said, our legal team frequently seeks financial recovery for losses, damages, and injuries that include:
- medical bills
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- physical disability
- physical disfigurement
- property damage or loss
- lost income
A Doan Law Firm San Diego personal injury lawyer will fight to ensure that you obtain full compensation in your case. Not only may you be entitled to money for your losses to date, but you may also suffer damages into the future.
For example, you may require medical care and treatment for an indefinite period of time. You may suffer pain indefinitely as well. You may not be able to return to work in the immediate future. All of this represents the types of ongoing losses for which you are entitled to financial recovery in your case.
