Proving causation in your personal injury case means collecting evidence that shows the at-fault party owed you a duty of reasonable care and breached their duty to you. Your evidence must also prove their action or failure to take action caused your injuries and led to your financial damages. These four elements are required to prove negligence and establish liability.
Our law firm will explain how to prove causation in a Columbus personal injury lawsuit. We ensure you have time to recover from your injuries while we collect evidence, build your case file, and negotiate a financial settlement. We also make sure your case is filed within the allowable time and is ready for the settlement negotiation process or trial.
What Evidence Helps Prove Causation?
According to Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research, accidental injuries account for 24.8 million annual doctor’s office visits. They also account for 97.9 million trips to the emergency room every year. To establish the cause of your injuries, we collect documents and paperwork that prove liability and prove your right to compensation. We also submit your evidence of causation to the at-fault party and use it to steer negotiations in your favor.
Accident and Incident Reports
Depending on how you were injured and where the accident you were involved in occurred, reporting it can generate police, incident, accident, or internal corporate reports. When a written report is made about your injuries, it often captures important details, including factors that contributed to the accident and whether or not drugs or alcohol were involved.
Witness Statements and Footage
Today, most people have a smartphone on their person every time they leave their homes. This can work in your favor when witnesses and passersby capture details of the accident. In addition to video footage, they might also take helpful photos. Finally, we take their written statements because they can provide objective testimony from varying vantage points that help paint a more complete picture of the accident.
Medical Records and Reports
Your medical records help prove causation because they contain details about how your injuries occurred. They also prove the severity of your injuries and document your anticipated recovery time. In addition, we take your personal statement that describes the circumstances that led to the accident and the toll your injuries take on your life.
