Why is Medical Evidence So Important?

Because it can help illustrate the extent of your injuries. Even before a trial, an insurance adjuster may realize, after reviewing the medical evidence, that they don't want this evidence presented to a jury and may then decide to offer a sizable settlement. Or, if your case goes to trial, the evidence becomes easier to grasp for jurors and this can also lead to a favorable outcome.


Common Types of Medical Evidence

Our firm routinely utilizes these forms of medical evidence: Charts, Graphs, Illustrations (Anatomy, for example), "Day in the life" Videos, Work Restriction Evaluation Forms, X-Rays and MRIs, and Video Depositions of Doctors
