In order to win a NJ car or truck accident lawsuit filed in Cherry Hill, Marlton or Camden, South New Jersey or in northern parts of New Jersey, injured parties must prove certain elements as discussed in part 1 of this article.  Part 1 of the article also discussed how police accident reports, witnesses’ statements and depositions may help establish the driver’s fault/negligence.

Part 2 of this article below will discuss how injured parties can prove that their injuries and damages resulted from a car, bus or truck accident in New Jersey.

Proving Injuries Caused by a Car Accident in Cherry Hill, NJ

One of the ways an injured driver or passenger can prove that a car accident caused their injuries is through his/her medical records.  Therefore, an injured victim should seek medical treatment after a car accident.  An injured car accident driver/passenger cannot just say that he/she suffered injuries.  Medical proof is necessary.  If the injured victim seeks medical treatment after a car accident at an emergency room, with his/her family doctor and with an orthopedic doctor, all of those visits are documented via medical records.  Once the lawsuit is filed, these medical records are evidence which help establish that the injured driver/passenger’s injuries resulted from the car accident.

Another way to prove a plaintiff driver/passenger’s injuries were caused by the car accident is through doctors’ reports/testimony.   Like witnesses, doctors may be deposed to help establish the extent of the injured victim’s injuries. Doctors not only attest to the injured car accident victim’s injuries, but they can also discuss the short-term and future medical prognosis.  For example, a roofer who broke his leg and needed a metal rod implant may be more likely to sustain early post-traumatic arthritis in the leg.  He may also need future surgery to replace the rod.  This evidence can only come from a medical doctor/expert.  When medical evidence and testimony are presented properly, they can have a significant impact on the value of the injured victims’ damages.

The injuries may also be so severe that the injured victim is disabled and can no longer work at his/her job.  The roofer discussed in the above example may not be able to return to work as a roofer due to the metal rod in his leg because he cannot climb up and down ladders or bend his leg like before.  In this situation, an economist may be needed to calculate and prove the victim’s future lost wages.
