Tips for Preserving Evidence After a Philadelphia Construction Accident

Preserving evidence is crucial after a construction accident in Philadelphia. Besides helping to prove liability, evidence will help show the extent of your injuries. For example, if your hard hat was cracked after an accident, you should keep the hat to prove the severity of your head injury. Of course, you will also need documented medical records.

Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes claimants can make is failing to provide sufficient evidence to back up their cases.

Gathering evidence doesn't have to be difficult in all cases. Since nearly everyone carries a cell phone with a camera, you should also ask any witnesses to take photos of the accident and email them to you. Your visible injuries should also be photographed throughout your healing process. The evidence you can gather can directly help your Philadelphia construction accidents attorney to build a solid case.

Keeping a Journal after a Philadelphia Construction Accident

You should also keep a journal after your accident. 

Include daily updates on the following:
 

  • any pain you are experiencing;
  • medication you are taking;
  • the duration of the medication's effect; and
  • activities you are no longer capable of doing because of your injuries.


Although a journal might seem insignificant, it could be critical when you seek compensation for physical and emotional pain and suffering and your altered quality of life. Your Philadelphia construction accidents attorney can provide you with more advice for preserving evidence. In addition, your attorney can caution you about some of the things that can harm your injury claim.
