This is John Kelly at the Kelly Law Team and I want to talk to you about auto accidents. If you've been in an auto accident and you're dealing with the injuries, you may be upset about how this happened, and it's understandable. Someone else out of their own negligence hurt you and put you in a situation that you didn't expect to be in.
One of the things that you need to do is make sure that you're establishing a claim that you're going to maximize your recovery. So to maximize your recovery there's two parts to that. First, you have to establish liability. You want to get evidence and documentation not only of your injuries, so photographs of your injuries, what you've been through, but also at the scene.
What evidence do you have? Did the police come to the scene? If they did that may help you. But you may also want to go get photographs of the scene, things that the police didn't do. They may not have recovered video. There may be witness statements that we can track down to make sure that we're really solidifying your case to make sure that we can make a successful claim.
The other aspect of that would be you want to make sure that your injuries are documented well. So you want to go to your doctor's visits, you want to get to those specialists, you want to make sure that you're getting the diagnosis that can really show what you've been through. And on top of that, you want to take notes about what you've been through. And I often have people take daily notes about, “Here are the things that I used to do that I no longer can do”.
These are things that can go a long way to maximizing the amount that you recover at the end of the case. Remember you can recover lost wages, you can recover from your pain and suffering and your medical expenses.
If you've been in an auto accident and you're going through these things and need a team on your side, I can provide you with some of these resources. I often have investigators that I work with, I have accident reconstructionists, I have people that can really establish your claim, solidify your liability, and then you can move on to proving up your damages.
