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.
