 There are many things that you must do in order to prove your case in addition to a doctor’s report. For instance if your case involves a car accident you want to make sure the police come and a report is taken. This documents critical information such as the location of the vehicles, jnformation regarding the driver and potential witnesses to the accident as well as statements people make.

Y.ou also want to have someone photograph you injuries. You need your employer to document the time you missed from work and the amount of wages you lost. Also your doctor should provide a statement as to you inability to work for the period of time confirmed by your employer.

Do not suffer in silence. If you do not get medical treatment for your injuries it is as if they did not exist.
