The Types of Evidence a Watkins Glen Personal Injury Attorney Can Help Gather
While it may seem obvious that your injuries are the result of the other party’s negligence, you will have to prove your claim. As a result, your claim will be only as strong as the evidence you can submit. A Watkins Glen personal injury attorney will know what kind of evidence will build a compelling case and how to get it:
- Police and accident reports
- Witness statements
- Audio and visual recordings
- Medical and work records
A Watkins Glen Personal Injury Attorney Can Help Settle Your Case
Most personal injury cases are settled long before they go to trial. This is because the insurance company doesn’t want to incur the expense of litigating the case and risk a verdict that exceeds what they might expect to pay. Unfortunately, insurance companies are notorious low-ballers who will attempt to settle your claim for far less than it is worth. A Watkins Glen can help you settle your case in the following ways:
- By meticulously documenting your claim so that it is as strong as possible
- By handling all communications with the insurance company throughout the negotiation process
- By helping you make an informed decision so that you feel comfortable as to when is the right time to settle your claim and for a fair amount
All of that said, whether or not your case settles is always your choice. We can help you understand the pros and cons of settling, but it’s ultimately up to you.
