Law Blog

Being injured in a car wreck can be extremely frustrating. You may suffer some financial losses, and it may be necessary to take legal action to be properly compensated. Working to make your case as strong as possible may be foremost on your mind. However, there are specific things you can do that will may strengthen your case, and knowing what these are can provide you with the help you need.

Provide medical records

One of the most efficient ways to help prove your case is by seeing a physician about your injuries. This will allow you to have the necessary medical records on file about your accident.

Getting these delivered to your attorney is essential in having the strongest case possible. This may be the proof you need to enable you to fully recover your losses.

Gather your bills

Taking time to get all of your receipts together that show the amount of money you lost is important. You may want to create a statement that lists all of these and give your lawyer a copy of these.

Some of the things that you may want to include are listed below:

1.    Medical receipts – Getting all your receipts together for any medical care is important. These can range from doctors' visits to having physical therapy or medications you may have to take.

2.    Damage to your car – The more severe the accident, the more damage your property may have. In some cases, you may even have to replace your car, and it's a great idea to get a letter from your auto mechanic stating a number of your losses.

3.    Letter from your employer – One of the things that can be upsetting is the amount of money you lose because you can't work. It's a perfect idea to get a statement from your employer that lists this amount for you to have for proof as necessary.

Make sure the other driver was at fault

It's a great idea to have a copy of the police record on file to show you weren't at fault for the accident. This is something you will typically get the day the wreck occurred, and you'll want to give this to your attorney to help strengthen your case.

You can financially recover from a wreck when you know what to do. Be sure to work closely with your car accident lawyer so they can assist you.

Dealing with Estate Planning When You're Single

Too many single people assume they don't need to plan their estate. My brother fell into this category, and his unexpected passing left our entire family struggling to deal with his home, belongings, and financial accounts. It took nearly three years for the courts to set up a deal because he left no paperwork detailing how he wanted his estate divided. The situation immediately convinced me to work on my own estate, even though I'm still in my early 30's and don't have children or a spouse to worry about. Since it's a little harder to pick beneficiaries and estate managers when you're single, I collected the resources I used for making my own decisions and decided to publish them here on my blog. Use these resources before talking to an estate planning attorney so you're prepared for making hard decisions.
