The 5 Most Important Documents for Your Case
Documentation is everything when you want to make sure that your case results in the maximum amount of compensation. Every Tustin bodily injury attorney knows that having the evidence to back up your case will result in a much better financial award.
While every case will be a bit different, there are several extremely important documents that Silverthorne Attorneys advises you to not misplace. Here are the top five for most circumstances:
- Evidence of Injuries;
- Evidence of Expenses;
- Police Report or Other Official Reports (Animal Control, Health Department, etc.);
- Witness Contact Information;
- Negligent Party’s Contact Information
Of course, if you are physically unable to gather these important documents or are emotionally unable to handle the burden yourself, we will happily assist you in this task.
We can even travel to your home or the hospital if you are unable to come to us due to your or your family’s injuries. We want to do whatever we can to make this process easier for you.
If you need a strong plaintiff attorney who cares about your outcome, please call us now. You will receive a free consultation without having to pay a thing.
Evidence of Injuries
This will most likely include medical records from the hospital that you were transferred to after your accident. It may also include laboratory tests and notes from your doctor and other medical providers. If you or others who witnessed the incident have photographs of the event or your injuries, then these will also provide strong evidence for your case.
Evidence of Expenses
Your direct, immediate medical costs can be proven by showing the bills from the emergency transport, hospital, laboratory tests, doctor, and other providers. Additionally, you will need to find documents that support the value of any personal possessions that were damaged or destroyed during the incident. These can include insurance adjuster reports, as well as receipts or current value listings of the same items. These reports are incredibly important to any injury lawyers. Especially since they will be responsible for putting together a demand letter to the insurance agency; which will heavily include all expenses.
Police or Other Official Reports
Depending on the exact type of incident you suffered, various authority agencies may get involved. Most of these agencies will create an official report that can be a strong piece of supporting evidence for your case. When the police or other authority agencies respond to your incident, try to get the contact information from where you can receive a formal report. If you are unable to do so, then a dedicated accident attorney should handle this for you.
Witness Contact Information
Witness testimony can be invaluable to your case. If there are bystanders who can vouch for you, then it is very important that you get their contact information as soon as possible. While this information may be included in the police report, it is best to gather the information separately to ensure that your plaintiff lawyer will have it.
Negligent Party’s Contact Information
While it is important to gather the details of the responsible party who is at fault, please do so carefully. It is common for tempers to flare and stress to be very high after an accident. Do your best to stay calm, and only approach the opposing party if they seem to be calm as well. It is best to wait for the police or other witnesses to be present before approaching for this information.

Watch Out for Road Dangers
Please stay safe on the road. It is important to be aware of possible dangers while driving. A seasoned accident lawyer knows that common traffic buildup can result in serious accidents.
Always watch out for areas where cars slow down rapidly or have a tendency to suddenly dart into another lane. Try to practice merging gradually while giving yourself plenty of time before nearing the exit. Exit 101B on I-5 that leads to Red Hill Avenue near Tustin High School is one example of an area with dense traffic that can lead to rear-end collisions.
People in a rush can be very dangerous. East First Street near the crossing of Tustin Branch Trail is an area where traffic often is backed up. These conditions lead to impatient drivers trying to rush through lights even when they just turned red. Unfortunately, this sets them up for T-Bone collisions with traffic traveling perpendicular to them.
Please stay patient and cautious while on the road. This will keep you and your family safe. Of course, another negligent driver may still cause you injury, despite your best efforts.
If this happens, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can help you build your case. Consultations are free!
