Potential jurors have a tendency to look at serious injuries in cases of minor harm to vehicles suspiciously. While there are many serious injuries that may be sustained in cases involving low impact or minor vehicle harm, an attorney will need to determine how much resistance can be posed by claim adjusters and potential jurors. For injuries which are visible, like hematomas, fractures, cuts and resulting scarring, photos are the best way to relate severity of an injury.
All medical records regarding a diagnosis of injuries you suffer as a consequence of a collision and of treatment you’ve undergone for all those injuries are required. These records will help your attorney to determine extent of your injuries, your treatment for all those injuries, and cost of treatments. An attorney will ask your physicians for documentation for future treatments as well.
