Why investigation matters in a personal injury claim

The purpose of personal injury claims is to compensate the injured party for their losses and damages, such as: medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.  However, personal injury claims are not always simple or straightforward. They involve complex legal issues that require the expertise and guidance of a qualified personal injury lawyer. One of the most important reasons to conduct a thorough investigation in personal injury claims is to establish the liability of the responsible party. Liability is the legal term for fault or responsibility for causing an injury. In order to succeed in a personal injury claim, the injured party must prove that the other party owed them a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and caused their injury as a result. 

A thorough investigation can help gather the necessary evidence to prove liability and causation. Evidence can include witness statements, police reports, medical records, photographs, videos, expert opinions, and any other relevant documents or information. A thorough investigation can also help determine the extent and impact of the injury on the injured party’s life and well-being. This can help assess the value of the claim and the amount of compensation that the injured party deserves. 

Moreover, a thorough investigation can help prevent or counter any attempts by the other party or their insurance company to deny the claim or reduce the value of the claim. The other party or their insurance company may try to dispute liability, causation, or damages by using various tactics, such as blaming the injured party for their own injury by arguing that they caused the accident or contributed to their own injury or minimizing the severity of the injury. A thorough investigation can help expose and refute these tactics by providing strong and credible evidence to support the claim. 

Conducting a thorough investigation in personal injury claims is essential for achieving a fair and favourable outcome for the injured party. A thorough investigation can help establish liability, causation, and damages; protect the rights and interests of the injured party; and prevent or counter any challenges by the other party or their insurance company. Therefore, it is advisable for anyone who has been injured due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing to consult a qualified personal injury lawyer who can conduct a thorough investigation and represent their best interests.
