Sometimes, even if it was clear that another person was responsible for an accident, that person will try to claim that you were not actually injured in the accident or will try to minimize your injuries and losses in court. A defendant and their attorney may try to claim you are faking or exaggerating your injury or that a particular injury was preexisting. However, you want to ensure you are properly compensated for every injury you suffered in an accident. For this reason, it is highly important to consult with a personal injury attorney who knows how to adequately prove the full extent of your injuries and link those injuries to the accident in question. If you have been in an accident, call a Coweta County PI attorney as soon as possible to advise you and get started on your case.
There are some basic ways to demonstrate the full cost and effects of an injury in court, though many of these steps may require expert approval. In order to make sure your injuries are properly documented by a medical professional, you should always seek a medical evaluation as soon as possible after an accident occurs. In court, your attorney will help you explain the following:
- The exact type, location, and mechanics of all of your injuries.
- Exactly how the accident in question was capable of and likely caused your type of injuries.
- A description of the pain that you suffered as a result of the injury, with appropriate analogies to other types of injury if necessary.
- Which basic bodily functions and daily activities have been affected by your injuries.
A PI attorney knows how to demonstrate the above in a way in which the jury will fully understand the extent of your injuries caused by the accident and the full effect they have had on your life. This will make sure you receive the full amount of compensation you deserve to reimburse you for all of your losses.
