Massachusetts Personal Injury Witnesses
Witness statements following a Massachusetts personal injury accident are crucial. Whether it be an auto accident, slip and fall, dog bite, or any other kind of accident, favorable witness statements can help a case. It is crucial to obtain the witness statements immediately after the accident because the events of the accident are at that point "fresh" in the mind of the witness. Memories fade and change with the passage of time. Sometimes it is even worth paying a private investigator (PI) to obtain witness statements.
Insurance adjusters need certain information before they will pay out on a Massachusetts accident claim. By gathering witness statements, you increase your chances of convincing the insurance company to pay on your claim. Of course, not having witness statements will not destroy the validity of your claim. But it always helps to present the accounts of witnesses to the insurance company when trying to settle your Massachusetts personal injury claim.
