Simply saying you are in pain is not enough; therefore, you should take pictures of any:
- visible bruises;
- lacerations; or
- other physical injuries that can back your claim.
But that still may not be enough because eventually the visible marks will fade. You will need to provide documentation, through your medical records and charts, of the injuries you have sustained. Make sure the doctor has specifically noted them.
Getting copies of results from lab tests or imaging tests can also show your injuries. In addition, a list of the treatment you have received, are receiving, and will yet receive is important.
Furthermore, if your injuries are preventing you from working, then you should provide something from your employer which outlines the amount of work you have missed or will miss in the future because of the medical treatment that will be required for you to recover.
