How Witnesses Can Help Your Personal Injury Claim

When you are filing a personal injury claim, it is important to have others back up your story. It will make your side of the story seem more credible. Below are some tips on how to involve witnesses in your case.

1) Take down the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the witnesses at the scene. That way, you will be able to contact them.

2) If the witnesses are willing, ask them for a written statement of what occurred. This can serve as evidence to the insurance company.

3) If witnesses are hesitant to cooperate, they can still be of help. Just jot down a description of what happened and ask them to sign it.

4) Witnesses do not have to be strangers–they can also be family members and friends. If that is the case, it will be even easier to get in touch with them for a testimonial of what occurred.
