This guide discusses the value of well-crafted and targeted medical evidence in a personal injury case. When people think of medical evidence, they envision large pictures in front of a jury and Exhibits A-Z. However, medical evidence can play an important role well before trial.
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
