Evidence Needed to Prove Car Accident Damaged Suspension

Car crashes are very common. If you have been in a car accident, your car has suffered damages and you might have personal injuries and other losses. To have a successful property damage claim and recover compensation for your losses, including suspension damage, you will need to provide evidence that shows your losses were caused by the accident. A personal injury attorney will be able to help you with your case and gather the documentation and supporting evidence that you need to show your losses.

Supporting Evidence And Documentation

When you are involved in an accident, you will need to call the police and make sure an accident report is filed. The officer will come to the crash scene, conduct a preliminary investigation, and take statements from the drivers and any witnesses.

Be sure to point out any visible damage and any damage that you are aware of right away. Also, be sure to state only the facts and provide details regarding the crash. Here are some other tips for gathering supporting evidence:

  • Take photographs of the crash scene. Get photos from all angles so it will clearly show the point of impact, the location of the vehicles, and the damages. Walk all the way around the vehicles and take photos. Also, take photos under the vehicle.
  • Keep any receipts for towing and for rental cars while your car is inoperable.
  • Get a written repair estimate and ask the mechanic to indicate how they think the damage occurred. Also, get copies of any past maintenance records, as they should indicate the condition of your vehicle and if there were problems with the suspension in the past. It would also indicate if any parts had been replaced in the past.
  • Ask any witnesses to provide written statements regarding the crash and what they saw. Get names and contact details so you can follow up later if you need to do so.
  • Get statements from any coworkers, relatives, neighbors, or other witnesses who can vouch for your vehicle’s condition prior to the crash.
  • Your suspension can be damaged in the crash because it was hit underneath. Your car might hit a curb, a sidewalk, or run up onto rocks or other things.

Maintaining thorough documentation and evidence can play a significant role in the overall success of your personal injury claim.
