With any accident or injury that has been sustained, you should be focused on healing. When there is an insurance claim or another party is involved, an investigation will follow. This is best done with someone by your side to help protect your rights, and that is where we come in. A Pasadena personal injury attorney at Grigoryan Blum & Grigoryan Law Firm will represent you and conduct an independent investigation.
Just as you would expect evidence collection and research in a criminal investigation – the same investigative procedures occur in an accident or personal injury investigation process. We will:
- Determine the cause of the accident and/or injury, and if something could have prevented it
- Interview witnesses
- Obtain CCTV footage and photos of the accident
- Obtain physical evidence
- Obtain copies of medical records
- Obtain police reports
- Interview witnesses for their statement
- Gather expert witnesses
- Get statements from all parties of the event
- Study a recreation of the event
All of this is done in a manner that protects your privacy and follows the legal requirements of evidentiary law so that it is admissible if it needs to be presented in a court, arbitration, or negotiations. Your personal injury attorney will be involved in every step to ensure your rights are protected and strong information is gathered to support your claim.
Your attorney can use a personal investigator that has a standard of procedure that they follow to ensure any evidence adheres to rules. Not only will it be admissible to a judge or jury, but it will also be able to be used in insurance claim filing and negotiations.
The investigator can testify in court and detail their investigation and learnings, as well as the evidence obtained. They may also provide any information on conversations, videos, photos, and audio obtained legally in public or with all of the involved party’s consent.
Having a personal investigator on your side means you are ahead of the game and will not be surprised to learn what might be discovered and revealed by the insurance company or other party. This is important because you can find facts that might benefit you that the others have chosen to give very little weight to as it does not support their side. It also gives you a clear perspective of the facts and allows you and your attorney to counter any opposition to your claim.
With the help of the personal investigator and your attorney, you can concentrate on getting better. Knowing that you have partners in your recovery will allow you to focus on what is most important, while others are helping to get you through the red tape.
