Without proper evidence of your accident and injuries, you will be hard pressed to obtain any type of compensation for the damages you suffered from the incident. A successful Georgia personal injury claim settlement relies on having the proper evidence to prove that you are entitled to the damages you seek

To document your accident, you should have photographs of the scene and your injuries. Witness statements are also very important as they can help show the other party was more to blame for your injuries than you were (known as the "degree of fault"). 

In documenting your injuries, your best evidence is medical bills, records of treatments, diagnosis and future estimates of necessary therapy, treatment and complications.
Your Atlanta personal injury lawyer may call in an expert to validate your injuries and any long-term disability.

Loss of wages is fairly straightforward to gather evidence for, as you can provide paystubs and tax records to show your past income, as well as prove when you were out of work and losing income.
Future wage loss due to disability is estimated by taking current earning potential and adjusting for inflation and the likelihood of raises.

As you can see, there are many factors that go into estimating a Georgia personal injury claim's value. An experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer can help you create this estimate, but you should never trust the value until you have a final settlement offer.
