Posted on

Personal injury matters in Greenville can arise from a variety of circumstances, ranging from motor vehicle collisions, to slip and fall accidents, to pedestrian accidents all of which can lead to debilitating injuries and other damages. In all Greenville personal injury cases, the accident victim has the legal burden of proof. He or she must demonstrate that the at-fault party did something wrong by acting unreasonably under the circumstances. The accident victim must also show that he or she suffered an injury as a direct and foreseeable result of the accident. 

In order for the accident victim to satisfy his or her legal burden, the accident victims attorney needs to gather various important pieces of evidence. This evidence can include some or all of the following:

  • Copies of all investigation reports, including a copy of the police report if one was prepared
  • Copies of all medical records and bills which describe the treatment that the victim underwent for the accident
  • Copies of all lost wage documentation and out-of-work medical slips which authorize the accident victim to miss time from work for a specified period of time
