3 Types of Evidence That Make a Difference in Auto Accident Claims

by Staff Blogger | December 5th, 2018

If you were recently injured in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. But getting the insurance company to approve your claim can be difficult, especially if you go it alone.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident attorneys help victims like you by building strong claims that the insurance company can’t simply ignore. We do that by compiling evidence that leaves no doubt about who was at fault for the crash.

Three of the most important types of evidence we use in our auto accident claims include:

  1. The police report—All auto accidents in Tennessee that involve injuries or property damage must be reported to the police. When the police arrive at the scenes of those accidents, they fill out reports concerning what happened. That information can be used to help prove who caused the crashes.
  2. Victims’ medical records—Even when insurance companies know that victims weren’t at fault for crashes, they may still refuse to offer settlements, especially if they think victims’ injuries aren’t due to their accidents. But medical records can help conclusively link the origin of injuries with crashes.
  3. Witness and expert testimony—Insurance companies are notoriously stubborn, and they may refuse to play ball despite overwhelming evidence in victims’ favor. That’s when testimony from people who witnessed the crash or medical experts who are familiar with crash-related injuries can help sway insurers to finally give victims the money they deserve.

Let us use these types of evidence and more as we fight to get you maximum compensation. Call today for a free consultation.
