How to Get a Supportive Witness Statement

In the realm of personal injury claims, the witness statement can have a very important role. A third-party statement attesting to what happened can go a long way toward supporting your claim. Because witness statements are important pieces of evidence, you should be careful and thoughtful when obtaining one.

The information the witness can provide may be what it takes to solidify your claim and garner you a fair settlement. Witnesses can often provide details that the police report or accounts from you or the liable party missed. They will have a different perspective of the incident and that perspective can be valuable to an insurance adjuster. Above all, they have no financial or personal interest in your claim, so insurance companies take their statements very seriously.

The key to obtaining a strong witness statement that will support your claim is getting it as soon after the incident as possible. If there is a police or crash report filed on your case, try to get a copy as soon as you can. There may be information regarding witnesses noted in it. A good first step is to call the witness to see if they recall the event. If you have an attorney assisting with your case, they can call the witness, explain what information is needed, and ascertain whether the witness will be able to provide a supportive statement. Your attorney, or you if you don’t have one, can ask the witness to provide a written statement about what they remember, which you will then submit to the adjuster. The adjuster may choose to contact the witness to get an official recorded statement as well.

If you have a personal injury claim open and have questions about obtaining a strong and supportive witness statement, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can advise you on what kind of witness statement would support your claim and inform you on the procedure to obtain one. You shouldn’t let much time go by before contacting your witness to ensure their memory is credible. Try to contact any potential witnesses as soon as you can and consult with an attorney prior to doing so.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
