Evidence You May Need After A Tampa Car Accident

The moments following a car accident can be intense, jarring, and stressful. Police are taking statements, having to contact loved ones, and if the accident was severe enough, then getting looked at by EMTs. In that time, managing your car accident case is the last thing on your mind. Later, when the dust settles and you are working with a Tampa personal injury lawyer 1-800-ASK-GARY referred you to, you may realize all of the evidence you should have kept track of is gone or hard to acquire.

Here is a list of the evidence you may need following a car accident:

Police reports are an essential aspect of building your case. Law officers are required to make a report at a scene they are overseeing. There may be a fine to obtain a copy of the report, but the cost is usually minimal and worth it for the case. In addition, a police officer may notice something important that you didn’t, and typically an insurance company will not argue with the word of an officer on the scene.

You may not think to take pictures following an accident, but any images you can take or obtain from others can be vitally important. Photos take an unbiased view of the case and can display the severity better than a written statement or spoken testimony.

Medical records can display the damage you sustained physically from the accident. Having the doctor’s reports, MRI scans or x-rays, and a record of the medications or treatments you received can not only get you compensation for your medical bills but also add some weight to your case.

Property damage estimates are essential to show your loss and recovery cost. This includes more than just the cost of repairs or the car rental receipt. It includes upgrades to the vehicle before the crash that may have increased its value. In addition, having records of your vehicle’s maintenance, such as oil changes or rotated rotors, can prove that your car was well taken care of.

Car accidents can be extraordinarily stressful and difficult to navigate, but you don’t have to do it alone. If you are in Florida looking for a Tampa personal injury lawyer, contact 1-800-ASK-GARY today.
