Generally speaking, the most effective way to obtain a favorable outcome in a personal injury case is to present evidence that is hard to refute. Your Oklahoma attorney may help you gather this evidence in an effort to help you obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Video footage of a crash can be hard to argue against
There is a good chance that a camera was filming the location where your accident occurred when the event transpired. If the crash occurred in an urban area, it’s possible that a company’s security camera was pointed at the portion of the street where the collision occurred. Alternatively, it’s possible that someone filmed the wreck on their smartphone or tablet.
Photos from an accident scene can lend credence to your verbal testimony
Pictures that are taken in the aftermath of an auto accident can be helpful during settlement talks or at trial. For example, they may confirm that a road was covered in snow, that you had a green light or that your car was struck by a vehicle that didn’t slow down prior to impact. It may also help you show how severe the collision was, which may assist in proving that the wreck was the proximate cause of your injuries.
If you are involved in an auto accident, you will want to meet with an attorney who can help you gather, organize and introduce evidence that might make it easier to obtain a favorable resolution of your claim. If the amount offered by the negligent driver’s insurance company is insufficient, your attorney can prepare for a trial.
