What kind of evidence can be used to support a personal injury claim?

Categories: FAQs

Evidence is king in personal injury cases – without it, you cannot win. Many different types of evidence can be collected, including:

  • Witness statements
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert testimony (an accident reconstruction specialist, for example)
  • Depositions
  • Photographs
  • X-rays and other medical records
  • Police reports
  • Bloody clothes
  • Death certificate (in a wrongful death case)

Sometimes, evidence is excluded by the Evidence Code. You might have trouble, for example, submitting a photocopy of a death certificate or oral testimony on the contents of a police report (if a written version is available).
