After a car accident, victims often struggle with medical bills, repair costs, funeral expenses and other financial difficulties. People who get a fair settlement offer can recover financially. However, many people do not get a fair settlement deal. Very few people get enough damages to cover all of their bills.

One way to get a fair settlement offer is by having strong evidence to negotiate a better deal. There are several forms of evidence victims can collect. Here is what you should know:

Police report

A police report is often the first thing that is required by insurance companies. This report will help show who was involved in a collision. The details of the report can include when and where the accident took place, who was involved in the crash and their contact information, the severity of the crash and who may have been liable for the accident.

Medical report

A medical report can be made immediately after an accident and as a follow up with medical professionals. This report can help demonstrate the impact a collision had on a victim. A medical examination can show how a victim is suffering from their injuries and how it may be affecting their daily life, such as pain, suffering and wage loss.

Video and photo evidence

It can help to have video and photo evidence of an accident to get a fair settlement offer. A dash camera could record the seconds that led up to a collision. This can help show who was liable for the collision. Photos may help show the impact of a crash to each vehicle.

Witness statements

A witness may have been present during a crash. They may provide a statement that details everything they saw at the time of an accident. This can also help show who was liable for the crash.

It can take time to negotiate a fair settlement offer with insurance companies. If you are a victim of a car crash, you can learn about your options by reaching out for legal help.
