When dealing with the pain and aftermath of a serious Chicago personal injury claim, the last thing you want to do is take photos of the accident scene. Unfortunately, those photos could end up being the difference between winning and losing your case.
Taking photos is just one part of the extremely important task of documenting everything after any type of personal injury.
Other forms of documentation are critically important to your case:
- Medical records and bills relating to your injuries.
- Any correspondence, written or recorded, between you and insurance companies, medical personnel, and emergency responders (police, firefighters, etc.).
- Police report from the scene of the accident.
- Eyewitness accounts, usually in writing, of the accident.
Make sure to keep all this information in one place, so that it is readily available when it comes time to speak with your attorney.
If you are having trouble gathering this information on your own, like photographs of the accident scene or pictures of the injuries sustained to your body, enlisting the help of an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer is the best route to go. That is what they are here for – to handle as much of the claim as possible, so that you can focus on regaining your health.
