How can I document my injuries?

Document injuries

The best way to preserve evidence of your injuries is to report them to a doctor promptly, and photograph or videotape any visible marks, swelling, cuts, or bruises, including splints or bandages.

Without an early medical record and photos documenting your injuries, insurance companies can argue that you were not injured. The visible injuries heal, and they will not look as serious later. The insurance company may also argue that your injuries were superficial and may not properly compensate you for your pain and suffering.

For more information about seeking compensation, please contact our personal injury attorneys at the Elk Grove-based O'Brien & Zehnder Law Firm by calling 1-800-722-4176 or send us an email and someone from our office will be in touch with you shortly.
