Personal injuries can result from a variety of accidents. When you are hurt because of the negligence or carelessness of another person, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Whether those injuries came from a Los Angeles car or truck accident, a premise accident, or even a pedestrian accident, the person at fault should be held responsible for any injuries they may have caused you. Getting compensated for these injuries typically involves bringing a personal injury claim against the responsible party. Get in touch with a top Calabasas personal injury lawyer NOW.
When you bring a personal injury claim against another person for causing you injury, it is extremely important that you have medical evidence documenting your injuries. To bring a successful personal injury claim you will need to show that another's actions were the cause of your injuries (and did not come from a pre-existing condition). While many types of evidence are helpful, such as video evidence, witness testimony, etc., medical evidence is especially important and will be used to show that your injuries were the result of the specific accident in your claim. This may seem obvious, but it can get tricky especially if you had pre-existing injuries.
Obtaining Medical Evidence After a Calabasas Personal Injury Accident
To obtain medical evidence, you need go see a doctor. Although some injuries after an accident may seem minor, it is always important to see a doctor as even minor injuries can cause serious future physical pain. A doctor can properly assess your injuries and determine what type of care you need. The doctor typically does so by taking x-rays or performing various tests, all which can be used to document your injuries for a future claim. For example, if you break your leg in a car accident, the x-ray of your leg will serve as evidence in your personal injury claim.
It is important to note that even if you did have a pre-existing injury, it is not unusual for that injury to be aggravated or exacerbated by a new accident, such as a car collision. In this situation, it is still important to visit the doctor to determine the effect the accident had in worsening your injuries. These types of cases can get trickier, as it will be necessary to understand the victim's prior injury and how they were doing just before the accident compared to right after the accident. If the injuries have been aggravated, it is still possible to get personal injury damages to cover the costs of the additional injuries. Medical evidence such as prior records or doctor testimony stating the victim's condition before and after will be crucial to this type of case.
