Evidence Gathering in Personal Injury Claims
When bringing a personal injury claim, the obligation is upon the Claimant, the person bringing the claim to prove their claim.
To prove a personal injury claim, evidence is often needed to show your case. Evidence to prove the claim can come in many different forms and can include items such as;
- Police Reports
- Witness Statements
- Bank statements
- Medical records
Once the evidence is gathered it will be for your legal advisers to review this evidence and consider how the evidence helps to prove the claim that is being proposed. It many cases if there is insufficient evidence to support the claim, it will unfortunately fail.
Holly Minney, Head of Dispute Resolution and specialising in personal injury law, said:
“The team at Mullis & Peake will discuss the evidence available with the client and seek any additional documentation they need from other parties. We will be able to assess this evidence to assess where it benefits your claim.”
