Valuing Auto Accident Personal Injury Cases

by | Nov 16, 2015 | Car Accidents | 0 comments

When a person is involved in an automobile accident, a Michigan personal injury attorney will examine evidence to determine who is liable for the accident.  Your lawyer will also examine evidence such as medical records and medical bills before placing a value on your personal injury case.  In cases involving auto accidents, your Michigan personal injury lawyer has additional information to consider before placing a value on your case.

Investigating Damage to Your Vehicle

It is important for your Michigan personal injury attorney to investigate the damage done to your vehicle as a result of the accident.  The extent of the damage can serve as a crucial piece of evidence in your personal injury case.  If you are at all able after an automobile accident, take pictures of the accident scene.  Make sure to focus your photographs on the damage done to your vehicle.  If you are unable to secure photos of your damaged vehicle at the crime scene, you may be able to still use photos taken at a later date.  If your car is totaled during an automobile accident, then juries are more likely to believe that the accident can be the cause of some serious injuries.

However, if you walk away from an automobile accident without a scratch on your vehicle, some juries may be reluctant to believe that your automobile accident was serious enough to cause you a severe injury.  The jury may only be willing to award you compensation for minor injuries.  Be sure to provide your Michigan personal injury attorney with any information you have regarding your vehicle after the accident.  Your Michigan personal injury attorney will use that information to help you determine the value of your personal injury case.
