At Ashby Thelen Lowry, our Atlanta personal injury attorneys know that parties involved in personal injury cases must effectively gather and present relevant evidence to support their Georgia claims.

According to Merriam-Webster, evidence is the body of facts or information that indicates whether a belief or proposition is true or valid. As straightforward as that may seem, different types of evidence are used in personal injury cases and are crucial in determining liability and damages. It establishes the facts surrounding the incident, the extent of the injuries, and their impact on the injured person’s life.

Here, we discuss the critical aspects of these varying types of evidence and the best way to collect them to help support your claim.

Evidence in Georgia Personal Injury Cases

What Types of Evidence are Important to Georgia Personal Injury Claims?

Evidence is used to establish who was at fault for the incident that led to our clients’ injuries. Proving the extent of our clients’ injuries and the resulting damages is necessary to obtain fair compensation for their claims.

That includes, but is not limited to:

  • Witness Testimony

Eyewitness testimony can be critical in personal injury cases, as it provides firsthand accounts of the events leading up to the incident. Witness testimony can corroborate our client’s position, contradict the at-fault party’s version of events, and influence the claim’s outcome.

  • Expert Testimony

Expert witnesses, such as medical professionals, incident reconstruction specialists, and economists, may be called upon to provide specialized knowledge and opinions relevant to the case. Their testimony can help clarify complex issues to help build a strong case when necessary.

  • Documentary Evidence

Medical records, police reports, employment records, and financial records can provide objective evidence supporting our clients’ claims regarding injuries, damages, and losses.

  • Demonstrative Evidence

Visual aids such as photographs, diagrams, and video recordings can help illustrate key points and make complex information more accessible to support how the incident unfolded.

These combined forms of evidence must establish a direct link between the liable party’s actions or negligence and our clients’ injuries. If your injuries kept you from collecting any evidence from the scene, we can help you establish liability by investigating the incident, your injuries, and the facts surrounding how they occurred.
