Proving Liability for Your Neck Injury
As your legal team, one of our goals will be to determine who is responsible for your economic and noneconomic damages. Negligent parties may include a property owner, driver, manufacturer, or medical professional.
To establish negligence, our legal team will need to review the following forms of evidence:
The Police Report
If law enforcement was called to the scene of the accident, they likely filled out a police report that details various pieces of crucial information. This could include the names of who was involved, the location of the accident, and other information that could point to liability.
We can call on two types of witnesses to substantiate your claim. Eyewitnesses who were present at the accident scene could provide verbal or written statements. Expert witnesses, such as medical professionals or accident reconstruction specialists, can provide insight into the details of the accident and how it led to your injuries.
Photos and Videos
A surveillance camera may have captured the accident. If so, we can view the footage to determine what happened. We can also use any photos that you or someone else may have taken during or after the accident.
Possible Compensable Damages
Your Melbourne neck injury lawyer can explore the extent of your losses to determine what damages you can recover through an insurance settlement or lawsuit.
You may be entitled to recover the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damage (if applicable)
