While it sounds terrible, most personal injury lawsuits in Mesa, and throughout Arizona, are not decided on fact or on truth. Instead, they are decided on whether the plaintiff or the defendant presented the most compelling argument supported by evidence.
So how can you create the strongest case? In some instances, one good way is to keep a diary of your injuries after the accident. You have to be sure to keep a consistent and accurate record – but by doing so you can make sure that if the case ever goes to trial, the jury will be able to listen to an accurate account of your injuries and the impact they had on your life and your family. Evidence like this that is documented is much stronger than if you were to simply tell the jury about your injuries.
Another way to create a strong case is to hire a top Mesa accident attorney. A skilled and experienced attorney can review your case and determine whether keeping a diary will in fact strengthen your case. They can also work to ensure that your journal is not used against you by the defendant.
