When you are involved in a car accident, it can be a devasting and stressful time. On top of navigating any medical concerns caused by the accident, one may also find themselves navigating complex personal injury suits. Once a car accident occurs, it becomes important for those injured to gather evidence to prove what caused the accident and to prove what injuries resulted. Obtaining substantial evidence can help build a strong case, but can also present challenges.
For example, according to a recent news report, a motorcycle accident occurred this month In New Hampshire at the intersection of Concord Street near Courtland Street at about 8:15 a.m. An ambulance responded to a motorcycle down in the roadway and found an unresponsive man receiving treatment from bystanders. The male had serious injuries and was transported by ambulance to Southern NH Medical Center, before being transported by a helicopter to another hospital. The accident led to police officers shutting down Concord Street. In addition to the motorcycle found in the roadway, the area included a pick-up truck that had damage on the driver’s side. No one else was injured in the accident, but no further information has been shared by the Nashua police as they continue the investigation.
In civil lawsuits, the burden of proof of obtaining evidence falls on the plaintiff, or the person seeking damages. In other words, the person injured must provide evidence to establish that the other driver caused the car accident and as a result, the plaintiff suffered an injury. Evidence can range from medical records, photographs of the injury or from the scene of the accident, eyewitness testimony, or other forms.
After seeking medical attention and ensuring safety, gathering evidence from the scene of the accident can be helpful. This can include taking photographs from the accident to document any damage to your car and can include taking photographs of any injuries you have suffered. In addition, retrieving contact information and insurance information from the other driver involved is important. It may also be helpful to retrieve the contact information of any witnesses who observed the accident.
Having an experienced lawyer who can help you navigate the challenges of obtaining evidence after a car accident can be essential in building your case. In the stress of the moment, oftentimes victims of car accidents are not sure which steps to take to help them build a strong case. We recommend keeping the tips above in mind, in addition to contacting a skilled lawyer to help with your case.
