What Evidence Is Necessary in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

If you suffered catastrophic injuries or lost a loved one in a collision, Cleveland car accident lawyer Chris Mellino can help you build a strong case for a fair personal injury settlement.

The evidence that is crucial to your case will depend on the facts of your accident, but it would benefit you to gather the following:

  • photographs of the accident scene, property damage, and any visible injuries;
  • bills or receipts for treatment, prescriptions, and rehabilitation equipment, since settlement negotiations will focus on your medical expenses;
  • employer affidavit from your employer to prove that your injuries caused you to miss work;
  • contact information for witnesses who can help establish fault; and
  • police report.

Insurance companies have attorneys, so you should, too.

“One of the first questions some adjusters will ask when a serious personal injury claim comes in is, ‘Who is representing the plaintiff?’” says attorney Chris Mellino in his free guide. “Since this information is important to the insurance company, it should be important to you.”

If you have questions about an accident, an injury, or Ohio’s statute of limitations, Chris Mellino welcome you to contact our Cleveland office for a free consultation.
