Car accident information to prove injury
In every personal injury claim there has to be some sort of injury. Your personal injury lawyer will be setting out to prove that you were actually injured in the car accident. Injuries can be physical or psychological or a combination of both. You will normally have consulted a doctor about your injuries and they will have recorded this in your medical notes.Open Claim Calculator
Your personal injury lawyer will need details of this consultation so that they can request a copy of these medical notes. You will also probably be asked to attend a medical appointment with a medical expert so that a medical assessment report can be prepared about your injuries. You should keep a note of all the medical appointments that you have had to attend because of your injuries. It is also a good idea to make a note of how the injuries are impacting on your normal everyday life.
