Documents for building evidence in a car accident case

A North Carolina driver who has been in a car accident might want to retain a lawyer. Such victims should understand that there are a number of documents a lawyer may want to see. Being prepared with all the necessary information could help facilitate the legal process.

An attorney may start by examining the victim's insurance policy as well as payment records. If contact information or other types of information were exchanged with the driver, the attorney might want that information as well. A person who receives a ticket in connection with the accident should inform their attorney and give them a copy of the ticket. Victims would also be wise to keep accident documentation such as photographs of the damaged car.

It's important for an injured victim to give their attorney access to medical records related to the accident. This includes information regarding any counseling or psychological care. Along with pay records that show lost wages, this gives the attorney a sense of how much a person might ask for in damages. Finally, if the insurance company requests a statement, a person should tell their attorney. If they have already given a statement to the insurance company, the attorney may need a copy of it.

Car accident victims often face a long rehabilitation period and high medical bills. Seriously injured victims might be unable to work and may even need a caregiver for a period of time. If the other driver was negligent in some way, a lawsuit might be successful.
