In order to achieve fair compensation, your attorney must present adequate persuasive evidence of your pain and suffering to the jury. This includes medical records, witness testimony, and expert testimony, it is best to present witnesses who knew you both before and after the injury. These witnesses can testify how the accident has changed your life. It is important that these witnesses are not biased. A family member or spouse may be able to testify to your physical condition because they may observe you on the daily. But the defense will argue that they are inherently biased because they have a stake in the outcome. It may be best to present witnesses who do not have personal relations. These may include an employer or a co-worker, or someone who is not considered a “friend.” These are people who see the injured victim on a daily basis and have firsthand knowledge of the impact of the injury. This type of testimony is very persuasive to a jury and can lead to increased compensation.
