In the process of pursuing compensation following a car accident, there are various circumstances in which the discovery process comes into play. This is typically the case if the claim is initially denied by the insurance company and there are certain steps to go through a lawsuit.
However, without the proper evidence, the discovery process may be used against you rather than in your favor. Having the right evidence can prove to be very valuable in your case. Here are some things you want to have and why they are so important.
Pictures Tell the Story
We always recommend taking photos after an accident because they can help the discovery process. Many of the defenses used by the insurance company focus on a lack of factual evidence, but you can’t argue with photos if they show the right information.
The discovery process allows both sides to present specific evidence and statements, and if you have the right photos, your lawyer can convince the insurance company that their policyholder was at fault and the settlement offer may be adequate to cover the damages you have sustained.
Proving that the other party was negligent during the discovery process is what often prevents many of the cases from going to trial. This means ensuring you have the necessary resources to prove negligence, fault, damage, and injuries.
Some of the resources you want to have include medical experts, witnesses to the crash, and an accident reconstructionist. Together, these parties can paint the picture of what happened during the crash, proving which party was at fault for the damages.
At Goldstein Hayes & Lina, LLC, we work hard to help you compile the necessary evidence to get through the discovery process in the most positive manner possible. Our goal is to help prove fault and protect your best interests along the way.
