The actions that you take after your accident are highly important; they shape how everything is going to go for you in your case, and whether you are going to win it or not. Winning the jury is key, so you have to put effort in the evidence that you present as well as building a compelling case that will convince the jury that you deserve the proper compensation.
Gathering evidence for your case is essential in these kinds of cases; the evidence that you gather is going to be the only thing that the jury can judge your accident by. Think of it this way, the only way to claim a fair settlement and win the case is to have enough convincing evidence of your accident, so the more evidence you have the merrier. Make sure to claim photos of your fresh wounds and the accident scene. In cases as such every element that has enough potential of winning the case for you counts, so if you can collect the names and numbers of witnesses that would be very convenient for the sake of your case. Make sure to have a copy of the police report if there is one.
A Full Claim
Not all the damages that you have been subjected to are visible to the naked eye; there are many other several damages that you can claim compensation for. Your accident counts as a traumatic experience, which can lead to post-traumatic stress, and other emotional damages as well. Check your body fully for unseen damages to the organs. You can claim compensation for everything that has been done to you even if it cannot be seen.
Do NOT Settle For Less
You have been through a painful accident; your body hurts, you have fresh wounds, and maybe your vehicle is malfunctioning. It can be easy to accept the check that is first handed to you only because you are tired and want to get it over with, but if you have been in a motorcycle accident for instance, you can’t just accept anything. You have to put into consideration how dangerous your near death experience was, your deep injuries and your broken vehicle.
Avoid Social Media
You can convince the jury with enough evidence that you are truly deserving of winning the case; you can get the jury to sympathies with you over your emotional trauma, but you won’t really make a compelling case if you are describing to the jury how shocked and devastated you are, while your socials have pictures of you partying or joking around in the comments. It is recommended to stay off of social media when you are trying to win a case as such.
In order for the jury to believe that you are deserving of a generous compensation, you are the first person who needs to believe in you too. Building a strong case full of evidence, witnesses, health report, and police reports are going to make you feel confident about your case and help with gaining the jury’s trust and sympathy towards you. Make sure to be convincing enough through your evidence, which also includes social media, so be careful of what you put out there.
